Great flea market but go to the inside shops not the outdoor junk vendors

The neighborhood is not stellar. The outdoor booths sell a bunch of junk for the most part. Look for vendors who are locals, the "ethnic" sellers are just rip off artists selling... read more

If this is your first trip to Paris avoid coming to this place, it will shatter the romanticized view of the city. The place is hideous surrounded by stands selling cheap and ugly clothing and sport shoes. When you finally discover the flea market area, you find out that in fact is not a flea market at all; prices are... More

Expensive and hit and miss but found some lovely things here, antique linens and jewellery in abundance and an incredible eatery in the heart of it all - incredible slice of life!

The neighborhood is not stellar. The outdoor booths sell a bunch of junk for the most part. Look for vendors who are locals, the "ethnic" sellers are just rip off artists selling cheap junk. I bought a "leather" suitcase from a middle eastern man at an outdoor booth. I didn't notice until I got inside my hotel room that it... More

We wanted a bit of proper french fleamarket sightseeing and went there , because it was not too far from our hotel in Montmartre. Once you see the crowds and entrances you can quite believe it must be the biggest fleamarket ever. From where we entered just north of the 'Periferique', we found perfect small brick a braque old world... More

We had a perfectly sublime Sunday wandering around all of the different "markets". After reading tons of mixed reviews, I was a bit sketchy as to whether I even wanted to go check this out. SO glad we did as there are just tons of beautiful antiques and "second hand items" as well. You won't find the deal of the... More

A fascinating mixture of absolutely worthless kitsch (the iPhones just cannot be kosher!) and expensive and (presumably) genuine antiques. We travelled with had luggage only, otherwise I might have been tempted to buy some lovely art deco lamps.... The dealers will reduce their prices, so haggling is ok, as long as you're realistic and polite. A MUST for Paris visitors!

I have been there on a Saturday afternoon and I have deeply appreciated the atmosphere you can breathe there. the market is wide and full of original vintage pieces at reasonable prices even though in some corners you may find proper shops with nice vintage clothes for unreasonably very expensive prices. Anyway it definitely is worth a visit !

The next time you look at an interior design magazine and read that certain items came from the Paris Flea Market, know that they were not cheap little creative finds. They probably cost in the hundreds of Euros. But talk about truly cool stuff! The most amazing designer costume jewelry, art deco silver coffee sets, full sets of Christofle silver,... More

If you like to spend time rummaging through vintage/antique stalls, this is a great way to spend the day. Despite other reviews talking of feeling unsafe and it full of pickpockets, we had no issues. You go through a knock-off market to get to the antique market and you need to ignore the approaches from guys trying to sell you... More
