Go here before Puces St. Ouen!

This is the most accessible and reasonably priced market in Paris. There are many vendors set up on the start and you can easily spend hours browsing the antiques displayed.

This flea market has a lot of vintage collectibles as well as items that verge on junk. I did not see many high quality true antiques. Many of the items on offer had defects, chips, etc. Nevertheless, it is fun to walk the market on a nice spring morning and hunt for treasures among the large number of items on... More

Truly a flea market with trash and treasure. I have shopped and scoured all sorts of antique and vintage markets, read reviews, and as a non-French speaking American, I came prepared to deal with the customary French directness and left delighted. Bargain hard, be ready for the quintessential dealer response of walking away (a rarity at this market, but it... More

Much much smaller than the Puces St Ouen, this is however much more manageable. The prices are right, and it looks more like a large neighborhood yard sale than a flea market. We found a few items to bring back home. If you are not looking strictly for antiques, this is the place to go.

I enjoyed the place, felt safe, there was a lot to see. Being a French living overseas, I guess I look like another tourist so I had the look and the comment in French that makes French ... hummmm ... French... After being hailed in English, the vendor started to talk to me in English : Me : what is... More

Smaller than the flea market in Saint Ouen but much more manageable. Spent an entire morning looking at the great variety of items and came away with a lovely water color with an unusual frame, linen tea towels, a crystal wine stopper and copper sauce pan. Reasonably priced and able to bargain a bit even though we don't speak french.... More

This was a wonderful experience with tons of stuff to shop! From knickknacks to food to a quick umbrella because it started to rain.

Third time for me. It seemes the prices have risen and the numbers were down. Perhaps being early spri g accounts for this. As usual the vendors were lovely, appreciating my poor attempts at french. Nothing really enticed me to contemplate squeezing into my luggage but for people watching it is first rate. Watch out for stinky cigars, they can... More

This is my 3rd time in Paris, I was determined to finally visit the flea markets. It was recommended to me to go to Puces de Clingnancourt but after reading reviews and seeing pictures, I decided it was not a place to go by myself. I was already nervous about negotiating prices in my poor French and didn't want to... More
