Marche aux Puces de Montreuil – Flea Market

[wce_code id=1]

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.

You need kitchen utensils, old magazines and newspapers, small appliances and second hand tools and hardware?

That’s the place!

You are passionate about mechanic?

You’ll love these two stands exclusively specialised in bike and car accessories!

Secondhand goods dealers installed near Porte de Bagnolet offer a jumble of collectables such as medals, coins, stamps, comic books, dictionaries, art books and much more at great prices.

If you really want to make a good deal, go to the Marche aux Puces de Montreuil before the dealers pack.

You’ll indeed find hawkers installed in the back alleys selling their items for a ridiculously low price.

However, beware of scams!
