DO NOT GO
Oct 2021
HORRIBLE experience, horrible neiberhood, *very* sketchy populution, when we arrived to the market it was a very shady looking knock offs and cheap looking clothes, maybe there is more to the place- but we lost all mood to shop and just wanted to get out of there.
100% waste of time, and caused us a bad mood for an hour afterward. easily the worst place we been to in out visit.

lots of interesting things to discover - great little stands with old and new stuff - you can find a bargain - don't buy at the first stop

wonderland
Oct 2018 • Couples
if you want to have fun and buy original, unique stuff, this is the place. Wonderland of amazing objects from all over the world. Some things are very old antiques and others are memorabilia or even new.

Great place to see thousands of items you can't live without.
Oct 2018
this intertwining group of hundreds of shops is a must. really cool little shops stuffed with items from the past and items that you can't live without. a true flea market complete from 50 cent items to bonifide antiques priced int he hundreds of dollars.

Great Fun - Worth a Wander
Aug 2018 • Couples
We visited the flea market Sunday morning towards the end of August so not all the kiosks were open. It it was well worth the visit. Reminiscent of London’s Kensington Market early 70’s great fun and remarkably clean toilets too. Not to be missed.

Get beyond the "tat" to dicover the really interesting stuff
Aug 2018 • Friends
We spend several hours here on a Sunday during our stay in Paris. Easy to get to on the Metro and only a short walk once you get to Porte de Clignancourt station. First impressions were of clothing stalls all selling virtually the same stuff - certainly not the image we had of a flea market or vintage, so this was a bit disappointing.
However do persevere as we did. Get beyond the "tat" and knock off goods & you find the really interesting stuff. Vintage clothing at decent prices, a plethora of record stalls - and my favourite areas the antiques and furniture. Certainly only for browsing in our case but there are some lovely pieces. Wish I could have fitted some Art Deco armchairs in my luggage!
It does get exceptionally crowded, uncomfortably so at times so keep a good eye on your bags and any valuables. No real evidence of a police presence to reassure you on this front but at no point did we feel threatened. Its possible to grab a cheap bite to eat from the food wagons dotted about. We shared a huge freshly prepared baguette stuffed with cheese & salad which cost only 4 euros.

Very nice neighbourhood

I love this neighbourhood, especially on sunny days. Big street markets for the rich and for the poor, lots of restaurants and bars of all kinds: fancy, popular, hipster. For everyone!

Dont go there! Its a ghetto with NO Police! Very probability that you´ll get robbed!
Jun 2018 • Couples
Please take this as a very serious WARNING! Even though in some guide books this market is listed- stay away- you have been warned! I should have read the negative reviews before here on tripadvisor: almost everyone gets mugged! They are trick thieves and know ALL ways to grab your valuables you cannot hold on THAT tight! So here is what you will miss in detail: before the antique market there are dealers of all colors selling all kind of cheap china- and fake crap, such as hats, socks, shirts etc. Not many tourists. When you finally get to the "antique" market: old stuff you would mostly trash for totally overrated prices. I havents seen anyone buy anything there! Ist a mistery how they can survive but I have my own theory. We also visited the place called Chez Louisette -see separate rating there. On our way back to the metro station. within 50 or 100m my iphone was stolen which I carried inside a bag INFRONT of my body within eyesight- and didnt notice it getting robbed! There is NO police there, I guess they gave up in this ghetto and you are lucky to get out safe of this place anyway. The next police station is gare du nord where you will not be the only one online. Only the third (!!!) policeman I talked to even was willing to write me a theft report as of course like probably most people I didnt have my phones IMEI - which doesnt change anything by the way- as I read later. People are mugged in the metro as well, in Paris theft has developed as a fine art! It is not the Paris I used to know some years ago and I cannot recommend going to this city anymore- unfortunately!

We just saw mostly clothes... but seems we didn't walk far enough..

The Puces Flea Market was not what we had expected. Maybe we needed to go further into the flea market or maybe we weren’t exactly in the right place. We saw stall after stall after stall of mostly clothing, and much of it from Africa and none of it what I would consider a good price. We were expecting to see more items from France, like perhaps table cloths or dishes, or antiques, etc. But no luck. I later read on line that it seems the clothes are first and we needed to walk much further to find the antiques. We simply didn't have enough time...

Everything is for Sale here
Apr 2018 • Friends
We loved our time browsing all the flea markets and stores in this area. We don't buy things when we travel because we have enough and travel light. But we enjoy seeing all the different things for sale, and the street art that is in the area. It is an unusual area and easy to walk around. We got off the metro at Clignancourt. The restaurants tend to be more expensive but there are a few places in the flea market that are making inexpensive food for sale.
