Yes, its a flea market, with everything from cheap junk, to African art, modern art and to high art and antiques. We spent 6 hours wandering the different markets, only seeing about a third of the whole place. Don't confuse the actual market with the street peddlars that crowd the approach to the market.

I had no idea where I was going since my map did not include this area. I took the Metro to the end - the Clignancourt stop - on a Saturday morning. The area is a bit "sketchy.". I was a woman by myself and did not feel particularly comfortable. There was no area map, as there usually is outside... More

Uggh. Porte de Clignancourt. My travel mate and I searched online for a fantastic flea market and though that Clignancourt was the place to be - WRONG, oh so wrong. An American tour guide in Normandy advised us that Clignancourt was NOT the place to be. Why? Pick pockets, rip offs, loads of knock-offs, and most of all, overpriced junk... More

This is a very grotty looking area when you arrive from the metro. Eventually we found a sign for the direction to the market. We had to walk through a gauntlet of people selling fake handbags, phones, watches etc before we arrived at a small market selling handbags, and african clothing. This market was ok and the sellers were friendly... More

I mistakenly followed a post on tripadvisor that Marché aux Puces de St-Ouen (Clignancourt Flea Market) is open daily. It is not. Most other sites say that it is open on Sat, Sun, Mon only.

I agree with other reviewers that the walk down to the antique portion of the market is unpleasant, however, once you get there, it's heaven! There's so much to see and a lot of it is fascinating! I speak French and had many chats with dealers, I also haggled with some success. If you expect low prices, you won't find... More

Flea Markets were excellent but the number of beggars hastling visitors was quite scary. We felt very threatened when not inside the antique shops.

The Flea market (Les Puces) in Paris is made of a dozen small markets (located adjacently to the Peripherique between Porte de Clignancourt and Porte de St Ouen) each of them wearing its individual name (Biron, Vernaison, Paul Bert, Serpette, Malik, Malassis, etc...), each having several alleys and focusing on specific goods (books, furniture, cloths, etc...). As a Parisian born,... More

Most of the items for sale are made in China knock offs. Not a friendly pleasant environment. Constantly worried about pick pockets. It is at the end if the city and a long train ride. I regretted wasting my time there.
