Spread over a huge area, it is worth visiting these markets just to take a look. The intricate pattern of alleyways, peppered with old, gnarled trees and surprising twists and turns, adds an otherworldly feel to the place. Stepping in to the markets from the bustling, slightly grubby streets outside transports you immediately to a place of delicious quirkiness. There's... More

The neighbourhood is not the most nice one in Paris. But this market is really cool!! You don't expect it to be here ( when you get out of the subwaystation porte clignacourt ) We didnt felt so good, cause a lot of people were beggin for money or pushing phones/bags/watches in your hands to buy. But eventually we crossed... More

Of the several markets I would only rate a few as flea markets. They are mostly very over priced glassed in and guarded store fronts with way too much outrageous high end items. Next time I will go to one of Paris's other markets.

I lived in Paris for over a decade and this was one of my favs. I have found some unique gifts here for my family.....I bought a pre WWII map of Europe for my dad (a WWII buff) for a song. Can be pricey at some stands but such a hoot!

Even though this northern suburb has few remarkable sights to offer, it still draws Parisians to take the long metro ride out there. The reason is easy to understand once you have done your initial pilgrimage.... it is one of the world's largest flea markets. Held every Saturday, Sunday and Monday between the Porte de Clignancourt and the Porte de... More

I have visited so many flea markets around Europe and this is probably the biggest one! Though you have to take the metro till porte de Clignancourt which is at the northern part of Paris, i think it is really worthwhile. It has a huge selection of antique furnitures, silver items, chendeliers, paintings and renaissance style mirrors is very expensive... More

My husband and I spent part of an afternoon here walking around taking in the Paris 'flea market' experience. It's not quite a flea market, as it's more of a collection of individual shoppes. Definitely worth going if you are a serious antiquer! The walk from the train is a little sketchy - you will be approached to purchase knock-off... More

Great place to visit if you know before how to do it. Accessing the area could be challenging. I recommend to avoid the public transportation and for once to come by taxi. This huge area was owned till 6 months ago by the Duke of Westminster who sold it to a French investor who announced that he will keep it... More

The vendors range from polite to snobby to rude , but thats just Paris. I love one of the restaurants there in thats section that sells only chou croute many... More
