I'll never tire of the Puces de Saint-Ouen!

With over two thousand stalls set within a dozen markets, this is the biggest concentration of antique shops in the world. Age, quality and provenance of items vary hugely, as do... read more

Since as long as I can remember the Marché aux Puces between Porte de Clignancourt and St Ouen had an irresistible attraction on me: The atmosphere in combination with the enormous numbers of little shops and the goods they (try) to sell... simply love it. It started years a go as a flea market and developed over the years to... More

I am, frankly, astonished by the positive reviews here and find it hard to believe that these reviewers have visited this place. I can only guess that the reviews were posted by vendors at the market in an effort to dupe unsuspecting tourists into visiting this God-forsaken place. At first glance, once you make it safely (more anon) into the... More

A market that goes on forever. Not the prettiest in Paris and a lot of bric-a-brac but we'll worth a visit and be sure not to miss the indoors antique market where suddenly nothing is junk but really beautiful and old:)

This gorgeous, authentic antique/ vintage market is hidden behind a craze of pushy fake shoe/handbag/watch sellers. It's a real gem when you find it though, and I could have spent all day browsing through it. The prices, from what I saw, were incredibly reasonable for what style/ condition they were in, and if I was redecorating I would definitely have... More

We have always heard that the flea markets are the best in Paris. Well, they are. So much fun looking around for treasures. Each market within this area is different. Find the ones that are best for your tastes. We went in 5 or 6 and I would have stayed all day but.....others in group were tired. Take the metro... More

After numerous visits to Paris we finally had the time to explore the amazing, gigantic, Marche Aux Puces de Saint-Ouen. We took the Metro to the Porte de Clignancourt stop which was only a few short blocks walk from the entrance to the market. BE FOREWARNED- the entire walk is cluttered with cheap outdoor stalls selling clothes, housewares, etc, so... More

You need to pass a rather dodgy area going from the metro to the market, but once there it is very nice. You can get anything from seashells to antique bridges and 3m high art deco lamps, or just enjoy the show.

This Antique Market is the real deal. A feast for the eyes and a great way to spend an afternoon wandering. Visit Sacre Coeur in the morning and then walk to the Market. Don't be fooled into believing that the booths you see set up selling "junk" is Marche aux Puces! Continue on until you walk under the overpass with... More

Love going to the puce! Wander for hours looking at all sorts of wonderful antiques and stuff, great people watching, have lunch in one of the restaurants in the Puce, go to listen to French jazz. Make sure you get into the heart of the Puce....keep walking from the Metro and avoid the tents selling knock offs. Really wish I... More

With over two thousand stalls set within a dozen markets, this is the biggest concentration of antique shops in the world. Age, quality and provenance of items vary hugely, as do the prices. There are stalls specialising in 17th and 18th century art and furniture, some specialise in Art Deco, others in glassware, in antique kitchenware, or in vintage clothes... More
