Le Village Suisse

Gathering over 150 antique dealers, gallery owners, decorators, gunsmiths, jewelers, and watchmakers, Le Village Suisse offers a wide choice of antiques, ranging from primitive art to contemporary design.

Antique enthusiasts who like to hunt for rare items with a comfortable budget, but don’t have the time to discover the outskirt flea markets like the Marché aux Puces de Saint-Ouen, may find what they wish for, in this open-air market set in the center of Paris.

Located in the 15th arrondissement, a stone’s throw away from the Champs de Mars and the Tour Eiffel, Le Village Suisse is a Parisian institution. Gathering over 150 antique dealers, gallery owners, decorators, gunsmiths, jewelers, and watchmakers, Le Village Suisse offers a wide choice of antiques, ranging from primitive art to contemporary design.

While most furniture, paintings and other rarities sold at Le Village Suisse are not accessible to all budgets, they are at least a feast for the eye. In fact, taking a stroll there feels like visiting a museum. And art merchants, as well as antique dealers, exhibiting at Le Village Suisse, are always delighted to discuss their findings with an undisguised passion.

The current Village Suisse is named after a reconstruction of a 21,000 sqm Swiss Alps village designed and executed by Charles Henneberg and Jules Allemand for the 1900 Universal Exhibition at the foot of a Ferris Wheel. After the destruction of the wheel in 1937, ragpickers settled on this site using the dismantled gondolas as stalls. They were gradually replaced by flea market dealers and antique merchants, the latter offering more luxurious merchandise, more adapted to the wealthy patrons from the elegant districts of the surrounding Parisian west.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
