I took Line 4 to Porte de Clignancourt, (it's a short walk to the markets) early enough not to be bothered too much by the touts selling knock-off branded goods (where are the brand owners); I adopted the 'don't make eye contact and ignore them' strategy. I'm not sure when the market opens because different websites tell you different times... More

This is such a vast market that encompasses a huge area. There are the standard stalls selling " knock offs" and such, in addition to used items including the kitchen sink! The out lying areas are filled with wonderful antique shops worth taking a look at. It can prove to be an " all day" affair so be prepared, adn... More

Not exactly what we expected from a flea market. A lot of large, heavy - and expensive furniture here. I think you'd need to be living in or near Paris and have a healthy bank account to benefit from shopping here. However, I did find some very nice material in Vernaison Tapis. Reasonable too. Beware all the hawkers along the... More

I really enjoyed the people watching, and also liked seeing the spectacular antiques and vintage clothes, and visiting Chez Louisette chanson bar. This place is huge, you do need a map to find what you're looking for (there are sections for pricy antiques and for affordable posters, records, clothes, etc), and to push your way through the rowdy street market...

Amazing place. It was our first visit to the flea market and it was overwhelming. Beautiful antiques and vintage couture were my favorite things to look at it. We needed way more time than we had. Looking forward to going back next year

At first, we wasted time walking in front and around this flea market with the usual booths of pirated shirts and shoes. THEN, we discovered that you have to go more inside and that's where you find the cool stuff! The area in the back with antiques is quite quite and in the middle there were so many cool retro...

This place was very, very cool. Just be aware that the first thing that reselbles a markets when you come out of the metro is NOT the flea markets you should be looking for. The first markets you will come to are all those stalls that sell the brand-name knock-offs. Keeps walking and you will find the Marche aux puces... More

Well worth the Metro ride to Porte de Clignancourt, in the Northern suburbs of Paris. Once you have gone past all the cheap stuff, the rappers and bong shops you come across an unassuming arcade. Inside are two floors of antiques, curios, art, records & CDs, clothes and all sorts of bric-a-brac. It took more than three hours just to... More

Usually we hope to do some treasure hunt at flea markets. But at saint ouen, everyone's like a pro here. You can't really find very good deal. The items are ok but I didn't find any extraordinary rare product. As a tourist attraction, it's nice.

Not quite what I expected since I heard that this one of the largest flea markets in the world and was looking forward to all the found treasures. It’s very hard to navigate and you have to endure a quarter of a mile of drifters and shady characters selling stolen phones and designer knock-offs before getting to the heart of... More
