Since 1885, the St-Ouen flea market (also known as Marché aux Puces St-Ouen or Les Puces de St-Ouen) has provided one-stop shopping destinations for local Parisians. Begin your tour of one of the largest markets in the world at Porte de Clignancourt metro station in central Paris, where you’ll meet your guide in the afternoon. Walk together to the expansive flea market, which spans an astonishing 15 acres (6 hectares) just beyond the city’s outlying 18th arrondissement.

With thousands of vendors selling everything from vintage clothing, antique furniture and jewelry to original works of art, it would be impossible to see all of the market in one day. Marvel at the array of goods as your knowledgeable and thrifty guide leads you to some of the most interesting shops in the market, customizing the tour based on the items you seek. If you’d like to make a purchase, your guide will assist with negotiating prices and arranging shipping with French-speaking vendors for a stress-free experience.

Once you’ve had your fill of shopping, rest your feet at the cozy Chez Louisette cabaret café. Rejuvenate with a hot drink and soak up the festive Parisian ambiance as you listen to the stylings of a cabaret singer and accordion player. At the end of the 3-hour tour, your guide will escort you and your purchases back to the Porte de Clignancourt station.

Our guide was Olga and she was excellent. Would have found it impossible to traverse the flea market without her expertise and she conducts tours other than to the flea market. Would book with her again if and when I should return to Paris.

Our guide showed up late with a sandwich in his mouth. Then he went and got a water and never asked us if we wanted one. He proceeded to walk to the Flea market ahead of us with the look of maybe being annoyed he had to give a tour. he said he had just had a small heart attack the previous day so we were trying to be polite. The Flea Market was amazing but our guide was rude. We would have had a wonderful experience except for him.

The was a great tour and our guide was very nice. He spoke great English and really knew the area well. He showed us all over the flea market and took us into different areas. He was willing to negotiate with sellers and made sure we understood the dynamics of the flea market. The flea market is located in a bad area and we felt safe with him.

Our guide, Erell was extremely knowledgeable and very engaging. The market is very large and impossible to see in its entirety in one afternoon; Erell did a great job finding out what areas we would be interested in and then took us to each of those areas. We look forward to going back and experiencing the market with Erell once again!

Not impressed with the selection of goods for sale at the flea market, lots of repetitive things and garage sale quality items at alot of them. My tour guide, and her protege (sorry can't remember the names, started with a K) were great though! Very friendly and helpful. We were the only ones on the tour that day which made it nice and personal. Probably wouldn't do the flea market again.

I was a little bit afraid to go to this area by my own, but I am very glad I take this tour. They show me really nice furniture, vintage clothes, and I even bought a 40’s hat. This market is like a fantasy, you take several steps to the past and it is a most seen in paris.
