Grab a croissant and your cup of coffee and head off to one of the oldest flea markets in France called the Puces de Montreuil. Established in the 19th Century, it mainly stocks second-hand clothes (in good condition) and designer seconds. If wearing second hand clothes is not your thing, then browse through jewelry, antique engravings, appliances, crockery and even old furniture.
This open-air flea market is not as big as the one in Saint-Ouen but is nevertheless a fun place to be. Shops offer old books, old furniture and antiques. The market consists of professional shop keepers and stall owners who set up shop only on weekends. This flea market is the smallest in Paris but is a good place to pick up some interesting souvenirs to take back home. If you're lucky, you could also find something historic and original. Happy shopping!
The world's biggest flea market welcomes 200,000 visitors each weekend. You name it and this place will have it: furniture, pictures, new and second-hand clothes, all at rock-bottom prices (especially if you're a dab hand at haggling). There's a jovial fairground atmosphere with the aroma of food wafting around and people crowding round the stalls, hoping to pick up a 1970s leather jacket or a rare Louis XV chest of drawers. Make sure you have cash on you, as stallholders seldom accept credit cards and the nearest available cash machine is always lined out.
