Paris Shopping

Marché aux Puces St-Ouen (Clignancourt)

Fodor's Review

This picturesque market on the city's northern boundary—open Saturday and Sunday 9 to 6, Monday 10 to 5—still lures 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 lately: witness Village Vintage's newly opened warehouses filled with midcentury-modern pieces at 77 rue des Rosiers, plus other buzz-worthy shops and galleries (some of which keep weekend-only hours). Destination eateries—including Philippe Starck's hugely popular Ma Cocotte—are also attracting a hip Paris contingent. Arrive early to pick up the best loot, then linger over an excellent meal or apèro. Be warned, though: 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.
