Saint-Ouen flea market or Clignancourt flea market... both are situated on the same historical site of the famous fleas markets of Paris ; they are easily accessible by the Paris public transport network. The Flea markets are located in the district of Saint-Ouen and are accessible by both Porte de Saint Ouen and Porte de Clignacourt via the ring road and the Paris public transport network.
The different Saint-Ouen/Clignancourt Flea markets are open to the public on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and on Monday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The markets are also opened on public holidays (except January 1st, May 1st and December 25th). The Flea markets are closed on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Some markets and stands are open on Friday morning for visitors and Friday all day long for professional traders. The Flea markets are open all year round; however, Flea market trading is down during the first half of August. It is very easy to spend a whole day rambling through the different markets to discover this incredible place where vintage thrift stands or vintage luxury stands are found on the same alley. Feeling a bit peckish? You will find restaurants located in the St-Ouen Flea markets, one more different from the other: trendy, to go or a stall holders’ atmosphere.
