The best Paris markets

Find the best flea markets in Paris for food, antiques, bric-à-brac and more

Marché d'Aligre
Amélie Dupont / Paris Tourist Office

Browse for books, rummage for riches, bargain for bric-à-brac or be a flea market flâneur: Paris flea markets – the permanent or weekly, covered or street – are fantastic resources and often very beautiful and atmospheric. For food and drink, markets like Bastille and Saxe-Breteuil are a great opportunity to meet producers and sample new flavours, if not always the cheapest or most efficient way of getting your weekly shopping done. Almost every neighbourhood and arrondissement has its own market; to track down your local stallholders beyond our selection below, check out the comprehensive and up-to-date listings of all of Paris’s flea markets on the Mairie de Paris’s website here (in French). And remember: when taking pictures, it’s always polite to ask first.
