My wife in an an antique collector and former antique dealer. She feels that the prices are about three times the actual value of the items. However, it is a very big market and a chance to see some European antiques which you would not find in the US, From the time you exit the metro, you will be continually... More

First thing which really distracts is bunch of dodgy stuff sellers - glasses, phones and etc. There are a lot of young guys standing in the street and looking to everyone. Why? Well, probably not to give you a gift of 100 euros, but probably to steal from you. So be aware when you go to Clignancourt flea market to... More

Forget the kids, the sheer size of this famous market is quite daunting and it is made up of narrow avenues of hundreds of stalls selling antiques of all kinds. The highlight of the market is definitely the avenue of the most beautiful antique furniture and pieces of art you are ever likely to see. It is an easy place... More

Getting there is easy. Finding anything that is not overpriced is difficult. Even though we bought a few items, this is a large number of professional dealers that sell antiques at above-market rates. And the outer ring of stalls is essentially fake clothes, shoes, watches, phones. I'm not impressed and will not be back.

We walked from our hotel. Clignancourt is not so much a fleamarket as an antique dealers' reservation. Many truly lovely things if you have the money for them. Best find is the brilliant La Petite Salle a Manger restaurant. Delicious & friendly,

Some of my friends have recommended me this to go and see. Basically you have to walk for a few minutes (10) to come to the right place, but its an crossroad between antique and hip, but its not that affordable. However the place it-selve is in a high demand genetrificating, and it(s) worth to see it at an Sunday... More

Highly recommended chance to see another side of Paris. The flea market is v chilled, well organised and huge. I'd say it's better than london's portobello market in terms of range of items and general ambience

Went to this flea market with my girlfriend, on the recommendation of her friend who used to live in Paris. We took an "Uber" from our hotel, directly to the market. Lots of small streets with antiques and vintage clothing. Quality stuff and everything on the price scale from 10 to thousands of euros. If you only see fake nike... More

It must have been a great place to visit in the past and somehow it retains his 'charme' , however I suggest you reach the place by cab and not by Metro. The whole journey by metro from Gare du Nord is dreadful although very short as you may feel unpleasant lack of private space and losing your sense of... More

Not a great place. Neither it is very clean. But a peaceful place to live as long as you do not cross Rue Belliard to the north.
