Wide variety of antique and collectible furniture

Although outside the city we did enjoy browsing through the hundreds of shops in the market. The nearby clothing market should be avoided. Its a rougher environment and crowded.

We spent nearly 6 hours browsing this flea market - don't get tricked into thinking the white-tented swap meet is the actual market. The t-shirt, handbag and sneaker vendors are not where you want to stop! You have to keep going deeper and deeper down the streets, up and down the narrow alleys and just wander around. We found a...

I have been wanting to go to the Marche aux Puces de Saint-Ouen for years given a strong interests in interior design. The trip here is worthwhile and fun but I honestly have seen better in NYC, LA, and SF.

It was a fair hike to get to this flea market and it wasn't worth the effort. The area around it is under construction and gives the market a temporary feel. The stalls are repetitious - souvenirs you can get cheaper elsewhere in Paris, cheap no-brand shoes (Nike lookalikes without the branding), cheap jackets and trinkets. To get into the... More

Important note: these markets are made up of different markets. You really need to know that. We got off at Gibraldi Metro my suggestion don't. Go to Porte de Glignancourt metro. You need to know what market you are going to Antique, clothes or bric-a-brac. When coming out of metro you will be confronted with the crowd and the more... More

We were staying in the St. Germain area and took the metro to this famous flea market that I'd always wanted to experience. But it's a hike to get there from the metro stop, walking past crowds of rather shady people. Being New Yorkers, we just walked like we do in Manhattan; confident and no eye contact! But someone who's... More

I was disppointed to say the least in visiting this market. It was a journey to get there, so i was excited to visit this famous market! On the way there were booths of cheap clothes and knock off stuff , lots of haggling trying to get you to come to their booths. When you fond the antiques, they are... More

We had a great time perusing these markets. Some of the prices were eye watering (but can be bargained down), though the real fun was just seeing the amazing array of items on offer. Overall a fun day out. The only real downside is the large number of touts/sellers of pirate goods/sellers of junk near the entry... they are very... More

I spent all day here wandering the many markets that make up this site. The worst thing is getting there from the metro past endless pushy hawkers selling knock-off tat! (Next time you get high and mighty about knock offs, France, look to your own house first!). Keep your belongings close and don't stop to watch the card Sharks either....it... More

Such a variety of objects, crystal and china, art and furniture; we had a blast. Definitely push to bargain. We did more at the end of the day and were pretty successful; wish we had done it the whole time.
