Huge but not worth the time. My wife and daughters love shopping, but even they couldn't find much to get excited about. Kept on worrying that the cellphones the hawkers were trying to sell had been stolen a few minutes earlier from other attendees.

Everything from clothes, food, jewellery to a flea market. Can take hours to walk round this. Repetitive but some choice finds to be made.

Agree with a prior reviewer (thanks for this head's up!) Got off at Porte Clingancourt metro stop and were slammed with dirt, construction, the cheapest possible stuff for sale, and shifty looking characters (I've travelled widely and trust my intuition borne of experience...) Fortunately, we put our head's down and headed for the Rue de Rosiers and were not disappointed.... More

Well, nbefore we ventured, we were told that a lot of shops would be closed during the first two weeks of August as that is when the French take their vacations. Well, they were right. There were many more closed shops than were open. And, a lot of stuff was garage sale junk. The stuff that wasn't junk was no... More

I really enjoyed finally visiting this "Bucket List" attraction. I am an experienced "market" shopper for all types of French markets all over this wonderful country. This particular market lends itself well to bigger ticket items such as furnishings, art and expensive collectibles. There are many areas that make-up this market. So it's worth planning where to start and where... 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
