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

I finally went to Les Puces de Saint Ouen (the biggest and most well known Flea Market) last week-end. I followed the excellent instructions/map from OhHappyDay which really helped me navigate not only public transportation there, but also getting to the actual Flea Market. Most people think the swap meet is the flea market, but if you see knock off... More

We only went to look, didn't shop; it's a really fun experience. There are several different markets--some with extremely high-end antiques and others less pricey. It's a fun place to walk around.
