Flea Markets in Paris
Here are the bests flea markets in Paris:
- Les Puces de Montreuil
The Marché aux Puces de St-Ouen is not the common flea market you may have used to. In the very heart of arrondissement 20, far away from the most touristic streets, to go to this flea market you need to go on Avenue du Professeur André Lamierre. There, you will find lots of unusual objects such as post-war stalls or clocks; furniture; vintage clothes. Paying attention, you may buy a treasure!
- Marché aux Puces de la Porte de Vanves
If “flea market” immediately makes you think of the typical smell of vintage, I have another piece of advice for you. You can’t miss the opportunity to go shopping at the stands of the Marché aux Puces de la Porte de Vanves. More than 400 merchants of textiles, knick-knacks, and prints sell their merch at this flea market. They usually sell objects that survived centuries of adventures!The flea market of the Porte de Vanves is on Avenue Marc Sangnier and Avenue Georges Lefenestre, in arrondissement 14. It takes place every Saturday, Sunday, and during holidays.
