I almost didn't go....SO glad I did!

As other reviewers have mentioned, yes the lead up is quite sketchy. Hustlers selling every fake product under the sun. But it isn't that different from what I've seen in other... read more

I've read a lot of conflicting reviews about this market but decided to make up my own mind and visit today. The walk from the Metro to the actual market is rather intimating and a tad scary with all the people trying to sell you fake designer things. The market itself is HUGE!! It's overwhelmingly huge. There are several markets... More

As other reviewers have mentioned, yes the lead up is quite sketchy. Hustlers selling every fake product under the sun. But it isn't that different from what I've seen in other places, people pushing up aggressively trying to sell. Just ignore, keep walking and you're fine. This is only reason I didn't give five stars. I almost let the other... More

I thought it was an oldies market, instead beyond that it also has beautiful fine art galleries and many many nteresting shops. The only drawback is the surroudning, very run down.

We were led to believe that the market was open Sat/Sun for traders and Monday for the public. We may have got this wrong but by midday on the Monday the indoor markets were only about 20% open. If we come again we will research better! Outside is virtually a cheap and second hand clothing market which would be offputting... More

I have been in many markets. This is not necesary to go. I prefer the one in Madrid or better of all Trastevere market in Rome. Many shops opened so late. And staff no good,even dirty, andmany clothes very simple

I hesitated but I am very happy to have gone to the marché aux Puces St-Ouen! There are many many vendors selling shoes, boats, perfum, scarves, clothing and all kinds of stuff. Nothing is original but its ok for the price... If you like to bargain, you can knock off and pay half price. I was never threatened... Inside with... More

Ok, I love to collect stuff. Vinyl, toys oddball stuff. I could spend a solid week here and not get bored. It's just heaven for people like us (OCD)! There is truly something and more for everyone and I highly recommend visiting. Just allow a nice chunk of time!!

Every style from Louis 16 th to Danish 60's and 70's . Some of it is utter crap , others are exceptional . Be very very careful getting there - bag snatchers openly high five'ing each other with their loot of stolen bags . ( suggest either not taking a bag , or getting a cab to the market itself....

we saw the full indoor antique browsing areas which were nice to flick through old prints but dont expect the "good digging" antique shops as my mother calls them. no real deals to be found. the outside stalls are the usual scarves, sweatshirts, jackets, etc that you can find closer to the touristy areas. considering the distance it was from...
