I probably don't understand the concept of a flea market, but to me everything was overpriced and a lot was shoddy. There are some very upscale shops in here, too. Seems like a tourist trap to me. I'm sorry I bothered to go.

If it was ever made, you are bound to find it at this market. Be sure to take cash and give yourself the day if you enjoy antiquing.

This was very interesting, but not really a place to get a deal. It seems like it is more art / antique dealers charging full of not higher prices for “ vintage” items.

But there is a non-official market surrounding the official one with nothing but fake and cheap items being sold by street peddlers.

Probably not going back, think you could find something better on eBay or some other site.

It is in one of Paris’s working class neighborhoods so that’s worth a visit by itself.

Amazing experience. Some of the high end antiques from the 17th century (art, funiture, etc.) could have been in the Louvre and I would have had no idea. Rush past those cheap vendors on the outskirts - there are amazing high and lower end antiques. Prices felt high - but really neat things. Vendors were friendly and engaging (and dropped prices when asked.) Had a delightful lunch at some great cafe in the interior - the aisles go on forever.

Was recommended this for a rainy Sunday by a high end local friend who previously worked in the corporate office of Chanel (great style) - we loved it. Highly recommend.

Great markets with variety of goods including antiques, jewelry, household stuff, fashions, electrical stuff etc. A very nice place to spend time and particularly good if you are interested in digging and finding unusual good stuffs. The strollers are very friendly. You will find it entertaining, if you are good at bargaining too.

Paris is an old city. Compared to Australia, where I come from we are just babies. Seeing such an accumulation of antiques and ephemera in one place was simply mind-blowing for this Aussie! Prices aren't cheap, especially when you convert our weak dollar into euros BUT, you will not see a lot of the stuff here anywhere else. It's not like a regular market with temporary stalls either. A lot of the vendors have bricks and mortar shops. There are a few food vendors, but we found them difficult to find. If you are into antiques, this is a must see.

Since the late 80's, whenever I'm in Paris, I've made this antique market, a one/two day place go & hunt for all the thing’s I didn't know how I've lived without, all this time… Joking, or am I?

Please don’t be discouraged by what I’m going to say & let me preface... I enjoy and love all the markets in and around Paris, but… yes indeedy, the area outside the Marche has changed. Just getting to & inside the market itself, feels like an endless struggle, making your way through all the Flea-Market Junk on the sidewalks & streets with people desperately trying to sell you all kinds of fake-knock-off-crap before reaching the market. Again this is all outside the Marche and, for just for a few blocks if you’re arriving via Metro.

Like any Tourist Attraction, in a Big City around the Globe, don’t be carless with your belonging's i.e. wallets, purses, backpacks, shopping bags, mobile phone's etc… enough said!

Upon stepping inside the mostly open air Marche, with its narrow path's, everything begins to look & feel like a Quaint-Tiny-Village, with hundreds of street's for you to begin your Treasure-Hunt, & soak-up another fabulous Parisian Atmosphere. Strolling through the walkways, popping in and out of the many hundreds of Small, Med & Large shops, you'll begin to notice all the lovely shop owners, chatting with their fellow neighbors, it's so dang cute… one, or all will be smoking cigarets that look as though they've been lit for decades… it’s all so Toulouse Lautrec circa 1880.

Shopping & buying is easy & fun with a side of bargaining... well it's fun for those like myself, who enjoy being outside, looking at beautiful Antiques & old things, while trying to remember Prep-School French… to this day, I’ve not forgotten my first purchase here like it was yesterday... a gorgeous Nineteenth Century Bronze Chandelier, it has hung and has graced the foyer's of every home I've owned.

Oops, before I forget about Food, there are many places to take a Treasure Hunting Break, to enjoy a glass of Rose & Croquet-Monsieur… Yum, Yum Yummy.

Sadly, for the past number of trips, I've noticed a change when I adventure here, affordable Antiques seem a bit harder to come-by, not as many shops and owners don't bargain like they once did, and sometimes and, Shhh… sometimes far too many #*!@*% tourists taking selfies with no intention’s on buying. Remember when Martha Stewart blabbed about Portobello Road, and it’s never been the same, well…? Nonetheless, I still go every time I’m in Paris, & always seem to find a few... can’t live without treasure’s to take home.

My personal suggestion: Comfy Shoes, Mobil Phone, Euros over other Currency, Traveler-Checks or Credit Cards, Bag(s) that can be securely closed & don't pick-up or ooh & awe over item's you are planning to buy, this might give the seller an upper hand and bargaining won't be as easy.

Travel can be stressful and tough, be kind to your fellow traveler, after-all we’re all doing the same thing.

Got wallet stolen right after getting of the metro station Clignancourt. A lot of the shops was closed though it was noon. At the great first part of the marked we felt very unsecur...
