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

I've been here 3 times over the years and each time I come, I have an even better time because I have my routine down more each time. It is easy to have a bad experience here because of the nature of the neighborhood, or not knowing which markets to look in, for example. My favorite is the marché Vernaison,... More

Unless you are an expert and can separate junk from a treasure, do not bother with this place. When you emerge from the metro, you will encounter a dirty city with people trying to sell you fake goods. This would be a thief's dream. Once you walk through a few blocks of "canal bags" and other fake goods, you will... More

Quite an amazing collection of eclectic antiques and brocante. Spent several hours and only scratched the surface. Found beautiful weird pretty and interesting things. Haggle and search. Found some lovely Baccarat and got a good price. Take a coffee in with you as there are few places for a snack.

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

We spent 4 hours wandering the many and varied stalls of this flea market paradise and barely scratched the surface. Approach from Garibaldi metro to avoid the tourist trap end and dive in to antique, retro and collectible heaven. Can be a bit pricey though so haggle for your life!

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
