Marché aux Puces de St-Ouen

Top choice market in Montmartre & Northern Paris

Spanning 9 hectares, this vast flea market was founded in 1870 and is said to be Europe’s largest. Over 2000 stalls are grouped into 15 marchés (markets) selling everything from 17th-century furniture to 21st-century clothing. Each market has different opening hours – check the website for details. There are miles upon miles of ‘freelance’ stalls; come prepared to spend some time.

Dining options here include the legendary Chez Louisette, where singers perform rousing chansons.
