This Paris Flea Market walking tour introduces you to the world’s largest flea market – 15 markets, +2,500 shops, and everything French art ever produced, from 1960′s vintage clothes to refined 1600′s furniture and religious art of 800 years ago. The variety from these amazing antiques to cheap shoes & rap music is pretty astounding. Not homogeneous, that's for sure! You really need a tour guide because the Flea Market is enormous and intimidating. You can't discover the Market on your own....unless you're a local.

The Paris Flea Market is opened on Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays only. The market is completely closed the other days. As a guide, I'm free for touring on Saturdays and Sundays.

The best time slot is from 11:30 am to 13:30 (shops open late because most traders live far from Paris). An alternative time slot is from 13:30 pm to 15:30 pm: the Market closes its doors around 17:00 pm but some traders anticipate closing when their sales have been good!

Jean was a wonderful guide. He made sure that we would be able to find our way back to the Metro, and he tailored the tour to those things in which we were interested. Along the way, he proved himself a charming and knowledgeable companion, telling us of small historical details that we would never have known otherwise. His English is superb, and he put us at ease from the very beginning. I highly recommend this tour.


Jean was amazing! We had such a fun time walking through and exploring the flea market. He's very knowledgeable and if you're looking for something in particular he's happy to cater the tour to what you're interested in. He's very kind and we had a blast! Lots of beautiful things to see and buy.

Thoroughly enjoyed my time with Jean as we strolling the many flea markets that make up Les Puces de Saint-Ouen. Jean was adept at laying out the general plan of the Markets, and guiding me through the many small alleys and entry ways that are so easily missed by an overwhelmed 1st-timer. We began the tour in English (his English is perfect) but switched to French for the most part, which helped me in my language learning. At the end, I felt that he'd helped me develop enough comfort and confidence to return to Les Puces on my own, and enjoy. Recommended !!

Jean is so nice and worked very hard to help us find our market treasures.. He is knowledgeable about the history of the area which made our experience interesting. He also helps with the bartering. It was a great time. We highly recommend.
