Marche aux Puces de Montreuil, a traditional flea market
The Marche aux Puces de Montreuil (or more exactly Marché aux Puces de la Porte de Montreuil) was founded in 1860.
It stretches between Porte de Montreuil and Porte de Bagnolet.
These two exits access the ring road (périphérique) on the eastern outskirts of Paris.
It is less prestigious than the Marché aux Puces de Saint-Ouen.
However, it’s a ‘fairly genuine’ flea market where you can find ‘the gem of the gems’ for a few euros!
Don’t forget to bargain, as it is expected!
You must hunt in a jumble of old and new clothes, trinkets, small furniture, spices, books, sporting goods, tools, hardware, parts and flashy baubles…
You name it, it’s there!
Secondhand goods dealers installed near Porte de Montreuil are specialised in vintage clothing.
This is where you’ll find the old leather jackets, sixties shirts or military fatigues of your dreams, old lace, hats and accessories from the early 20th century, along with small pieces of furniture and crockery.
The central section of the Marche aux Puces de Montreuil is the Mecca of new clothes and shoes, sportswear, jeans and auctioned goods.
