Flea markets and brocantes

There’s a big vide-grenier (an attic-emptying) with 800 stalls on Friday, Saturday and Sunday (11-13 May, 2012) on Rue de Bretagne! Friday 6h-19h Saturday 8h-19h Sunday 8h-19h.

 The most famous flea market in Paris is Les Puces de Saint-Ouen, at Porte de Clignancourt. It is the largest antique market in the world, with about 150,000 visitors each weekend. There are a lot of details about the different sections of this flea market at Paris Perfect, and a lot of photos at The Paris Apartment.

Marché aux Puces de la Porte de Vanves is my favourite – it’s smaller, cleaner and more easily accessible.

Here’s an iphone app about the Paris Flea markets.
