Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Offering up an endless assortment of affordable goods since 1885, the St-Ouen flea market spans an astonishing 15 acres (6 hectares). Make your way to the Porte de Clignancourt metro station in Paris’ 18th arrondissement, where you’ll meet your guide and set off on a walking tour of this historic market, also known as Marché aux Puces St-Ouen.

With 2,000 indoor and open-air stalls, the market can be overwhelming for a first-time visitor. Your local guide will give you an insider’s overview of the 16 different submarkets and lead you to the best and most unique stalls, where you can chat with vendors and learn the history behind the goods they sell.

Whether you’re looking for vintage clothes, original art, books, antique furniture or unique household goods, your guide will help you track down treasure at an affordable price and negotiate with French-speaking vendors to arrange payment and shipping, if needed. At the end of your 2-hour shopping bonanza, your guide will escort you back to the metro station, from where you can return to your hotel or continue exploring on your own.

Very informative and friendly guide

This was a very useful guided visit to get a feel for the huge extent of the Puces de Saint-Ouen. There is so much to see, and this organised tour of the best areas to visit allowed us to make best use of the time we had there. The guide had a great deal of local knowledge and was very easy to follow.

St Ouen is just outside of the actual city center, and it's an awesome place to shop. Your guide will take you to this amazing area with all these beautiful antiques and vintage stuff, but surrounding the real antiques and vintage stuff is all sorts of amazing fast fashion places. You can't go wrong shopping there, no matter what you do! There's a fantastic place for lunch, too, Chez Louisette, in the first markets you'll go to! It is NOT to be missed! Order the Muscles!

The guide was very friendly, and the tour was nice for my first time at the flea market to orient myself, find the best markets, and not get lost, so no regrets. I was just expecting more, like some history of the flea market etc. I also probably should have taken her up on the offer to help us find something in particular, but, alas, I am too shy for my own good. Loved the market itself: can be very expensive but is fun to window shop, pick up one small thing, and get away from the purely touristy area.

My son and I spent A wonderful morning in the markets thanks to our guide, who was very interested in helping us to have a good experience. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in the history of the markets and the layout because it’s unlike any flea market that I’ve seen in the states and it enhances the experience to have a knowledgeable guide.

Our tour was conducted by Florant, who proved to be extremely knowledgeable and engaging. He took us to different areas of the Flea Market that all proved to be very interesting for each of the four members of our family. We were very pleased with how Florant helped us to understand the role that the St-Ouen played in 19th and 20th century Parisian society. His stories were very entertaining, and his recommendations of restaurants were excellent! A great experience! Highly recommended!

Marion was very helpful. I’m glad we were with her to get an overview of the market layout before venturing out on our own (I honestly don’t know if we would have found the actual flea market without her as there is a “pop-up” market before arriving that is full of typical tourist stuff. Worth the $

I enjoyed this trip very much. I was able to buy something that I carried back to U.S.-a statue. The booths are fabulous. The guide was very nice too. I would recommend this excursion to anybody interested in art and antiques. Plan to do it again if I get back to Paris.

This was a great tour, the guide gave us a great insight to the area and how the flea market became established. It was like going through an amazing live museum of Paris. If you are looking for something different and getting slightly outside Paris, then I recommend this for you.

If you have time to spare in Paris, check out this market. So many interesting finds in this place. Our tour guide was fun and engaging and he gave us a lot of trivia about this place. You will be on your feet the whole time so senior citizens be warned.
