Paris Biggest Flea Market Le Marché aux Puces de Saint-Ouen
The biggest flea market in Paris is call Clignancourt (pronounced “Clee-nyahn-cour”) and also known as Le Marché aux Puces de Saint-Ouen. I came here with Remy, one of the make up artist 2 years back and finally we are back again this year as this market only open on weekends which for the past few trips, we are not around or free during the weekend.
Well, Let me show you how to get to this flea market. If you are looking for old posters , stamps (yes, anyone still collect stamps now?), old furnitures, old cameras, then this is the right place to visit. First, we travel to Metro Line 4, at the end of the line called Clignancourt.
