Bit scary

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.

You take Metro line 4 Porte de Clignancourt direction/station, you walk straight and there is a trick here; please totally ignore any market stalls on the left; it is all valueless. Keep walking straight till you go under motorway, now on your left, there are two markets: 1- Marche Vernaison: This is an area of 9 alleys of old antiques/furniture/artistic/beautiful/used... More

When you come out of the Metro you will find it difficult to see any signs for the market. However, you should see a large general market to your left. Keep this on your left - there is nothing in this market that will interest you and it is the first of many places where you may be hassled -... More

It can be overwhelming, but with fortitude it's totally worth it. Once you pass the clothes and get into the antique area one thing is more beautiful than the next. I really had to talk myself out of this fantastic chandelier (retro 50's). There was just no way I could walk it back to the metro and then get it... More

Enormous flea market! More like a small city. I have never seen anything like it. You could stay a week and not see it all!

What a dump! Suggest that you AVOID! It is pretty much a ghetto. Filthy, rubbish on the streets & pavements. Bad looking dirty people "hanging around" looking for easy targets ( pickpocket gangs & muggers) Could not believe French authorities could allow a place to get this bad. Every second car has been broken into and we did not feel... More

A fun experience to view everything from bulk candy to antiques of every kind to military surplus to new shoes and clothing. If you are thirsty be aware that sitting at an outdoor cafe means €5 sodas. Bring or buy bottled water, go to a standup/take away vendor. I had a wonderful espresso for only€1.50.

We, Aussies came to buy but have nothing to show for the effort. We love markets but this is a shopping centre surrounded by rubbish market stalls. Would not bother particularly in the afternoon.
