Best flea markets in Paris?

Quote

Hello! I am going to travel to Paris for professional reasons. But I'd like to take advantage of this opportunity to take a quick tour of the capital and especially to visit one or two flea markets in the city. I've heard about the "Puces de Clignancourt", but that they were rather high-end and quite expensive. Is there a cheaper and just as charming alternative with some nice discoveries to be made?
Thank you

Hi! If you're planning a trip to Paris, there are several flea markets in the capital that you could hit over the weekend. Keep in mind that most flea markets operate Saturday and/or Sunday (Clignancourt takes place in addition on Fridays and Mondays). I am an unconditional fan of the Puce de la Porte de Vanves in the south part of Paris. I sourced the vast majority of my "Parisian antiques" from this flea market.

The Puces de Vanves are a great option. You should also visit the Carré Popincourt and le Village Saint- Paul in Le Marais. A stroll in this beautiful arrondissement is its own reward!

I remember there's also in Versailles some kind of antique district, but I don't remember its name. Very central. Maybe a few blocks away from the castle.

I think you are referring to the Groupement des Antiquaires et Galeries d’Art de Versailles which is also known as the Quartier des Antiquaires de la Geôle et du Bailliage 🙂 It is indeed considered one of the largest centers of art and antiquities in the west of Paris, and an internationally renowned market.
