Many people today love to shop. However, there is something about a flea market that makes even the most reluctant shopper stop and browse. It might be because a flea market like Le Marche aux Puces de St-Ouen offers so many different stores and stalls that there really is something there to interest any person.

Since Le Marche aux Puces de St-Ouen only opens at 9:30 am it might be a good idea to get there a little early so you can avoid the crowds and have a leisurely cup of coffee in one of the cafes. This will give you an opportunity to watch the various stalls setting up and getting ready for the day. It will also give you time to plan your day and decide where you are going to go shopping. For anyone wanting to avoid huge crowds it is a good idea to make sure that you are finished shopping before lunch time as it can get very busy afterward.

Many of the stalls are only open over the weekend so it is best if you are able to do your browsing and shopping during that time. It is possible to make appointments with some shop owners so make sure that you arrive very early if you really are only able to visit Le Marche aux Puces de St-Ouen on a Monday and would dearly like to buy something from their stall.

There are a number of different markets that make up Le Marche aux Puces de St-Ouen. Each one has something different to offer and is somewhat unique. You would do well to set aside at the very least an entire weekend to browse the area and see all that is on offer.

As with all crowded areas it is important to make sure that you keep a close eye on your pockets and your valuables. This is not something that is unique to Le Marche aux Puces de St-Ouen but something that many tourists forget about. You also need to make sure that you check if the prices you are being shown are VAT inclusive or not as this can make a big difference in affordability to some people.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 Star Rating

4 Star Rating Nice experience to just having afternoon walking down the Marche and enjoying the vintage artworks at the same time Like you go to the classic art museum but didn’t pay, just window shopping

4 Star Rating Open on Saturday, Sunday & Mondays only. 10am to 5pm. There are some places for light snacks & drinks in the main building as well as toilets. Preferred the shops outside of the main building as there was more to see & buy. It all depends on what catches your eye. It should be known as the Antiques & Flea Market. A lot of Antiques, less of a flea market.

The bustling atmosphere adds to its charm, and the presence of delightful eateries enhances the overall experience. Negative: While navigating this vibrant market, it’s crucial to be vigilant about your belongings as incidents of theft are quite common. Additionally, be prepared for occasional hassling by vendors trying to sell items like earphones and phones. Despite these minor inconveniences, Les Puces de Paris de Saint Ouen remains a captivating and enjoyable destination.

4 Star Rating not open during the week so check hours before you go. the vintage/antique stuff is rad… the new fashion bodega part is a whole different vibe and it’s not my vibe. stick to the old stuff and you’re golden. Also, we could not get the atms to give us cash (we’re international) so idk, we couldn’t buy anything which was a drag. this is where you should find your french souvenirs and also bop around and see some cool stuff and eat some good food.
