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...

We justed wandered around this very diverse market on a sunday morning for a good two hours. Just browse around and enjoy the relaxed feeling and perhaps find something rare or something you like. As there are so many stalls you can expect to find a lot of similar stuff. Neighbouring stalls are always in the same theme (antiques, clothing,...).... More

The oldest flea market in the world with 2500 to 3000 stalls. Well worth the visit. Don't be suckered in by the small (30 - 40stalls). Walk under the underpass and voila.

The Marché aux Puces de St-Ouen to me is not a flea market. I'm used to something like the Rose Bowl flea in Pasadena, CA where there are rows of stalls. This is a shopping district with high priced areas and cheap areas, newer items and ancient antiques. Even though my husband and I spent the better part of a... More

Perhaps I was naive,having stumbled upon this market almost by accident..no research beforehand.I immediately entered the most expensive and what I realised very soon.. snobbish and seemingly indifferent stallholders with very high opinions of themselves.Fortunately I couldn't care less about their snide comments(I understand French but look like an incompetant middle aged tourist ..which I am) I enjoyed looking and...
