Paris Shopping

Fodor's Review

This picturesque market on Paris's northern boundary—open Saturday to Monday, from 9 to 6—still attracts crowds, but its once-unbeatable prices are now a relic. Packed with antiques booths and brocante stalls, the century-old, miles-long labyrinth has been undergoing a mild renaissance, with new vintage shops drawing buzz from fashion fans and new destination eateries (including Philippe Starck's hugely chic Ma Cocotte) attracting a hip Paris contingent. That

means you can arrive early to pick up the best loot, then linger over an excellent meal or apèro. Be warned—if there's one place in Paris where you need to know how to bargain, this is it! If you're arriving by métro, walk under the overpass and take the first left at the Rue de Rosiers to reach the center of the market. Note that stands selling dodgy odds and ends (think designer knockoffs and questionable gadgets) set up around the overpass. These blocks are crowded and gritty; be careful with your valuables.
