Would you like to feel like a treasure hunter? If the answer is yes, let this in-app audio tour guide you through Les Puces de Saint-Ouen, one of the biggest flea markets in the world. Note! Opening hours: Friday from 8 am to 12 pm Saturday & Sunday from 10 a.m. to 18 p.m. Monday from 11 a.m. to 17 p.m. The market is a popular tourist destination, as it has really much to offer. Thousands of stores sell everything from antique furniture to vintage toys, jewelry, and clothing and attract millions of visitors each year. You will explore this treasure trove and learn about its past and present. The tour begins at the Plateau Market – it’s just a 5-minute walk from the Porte de Clignancourt “Marché aux Puces” metro exit. The route runs along Rue des Rosiers. You will visit the Vernaison market known for its antique furniture, silverware, and unique decorative items. It might sound surprising but at the flea market, there are not only second-hand goods! Namely, the Dauphine market is home to an impressive mix of vintage and contemporary items. Then, you will examine high-end antiques of the Biron market and get lost in Jules Vallés and Passage markets, with their vast range of books, passementerie, or braiding and old fabrics. While ambling around this enchanted kingdom, you will listen to amazing stories behind each market section and see how this creative mess is carefully brought to order.
