    La brocante à Paris

    By Julia Ansderson 25 September 2015

    WHEN you experience the Paris flea markets you’ll find an abundance of retro riches that will take you on a nostalgic ride. Whether you are looking for a specific antique or an original ornament for your house, enjoy getting lost in a dazzling array of original and charming objects.

    Marche de Porte de Vanves

    THE biggest and most famous flea market covers seven hectares, packed with high quality antiques with each stall brimming with stories. You’ll need plenty of time to scour this huge weekend market, and insiders say the best time to visit is before noon on either a Saturday or a Sunday.

    96-110 rue des Rosiers 93400, Saint Ouen

    Purces de Saint Ouen

    FOUNDED in the late 19th century and featuring more than 2500 stalls, it is easy to get pleasantly lost in this maze of antiques, trinkets, antique furniture and clothing. It’s open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays all year.

    142 Rue des Rosiers, 93400

    Marche Jules Vallee

    THIS market has more of a thrift vibe to it. Going strong since 1938, it features over a hundred dealers with rare and unusual items including cinema posters, bronze objects, records, old weapons and militaria. Open Saturday, Sunday and Mondays all year.

    9 rue Jules Vallès, 93400

    Porte de Montreuil

    WITH 500 stalls, this massive market sells copies of popular clothing but if you have the patience, you can also find some vintage ornaments amongst all the clutter. The items are usually far cheaper than at the more famous markets. Open Monday, Saturday and Sunday.

    Avenue du Professeur André Lemierre, 75020

    Marche Parisien de la Creation

    THIS market offers art and unique furnishings and comes to life on Wednesday and Saturday mornings. What distinguishes this market from the others is the 150 artists who come together and sell and display their work. Open Saturdays.

    35 Avenue de la Grande Armée, 75116

    Le Village St Paul

    IF you are looking for unique, impeccably made antique furniture from early 20th century onwards, this charming, chic and quirky market is open Thursday to Monday every week.

    Rue Saint-Paul, 75004

    Ends.
