Excellent merchandise at a variety of prices. Lovely market, medium size, not far away from inner Paris.

A lovely street flea market, surprisingly good but not huge, with a great selection to cater to everyone's taste - silver, ceramic & porcelain, vintage & fine jewelry, toys, Asian antiques and much more. Quality varies, prices very decent. Worth visiting for a bargain hunt.

I have visited this flea market several times over the years. As with so many flea markets prices are variable, depending upon the stall holder's knowledge. Bargains are there to be found, particularly if you know your subject, but even those times when I don't...More

My wife and I spent more than half a day at this market. We are from Texas and enjoy Round Top if that gives some readers a reference. Once we fought our way through the t-shirts, sneakers, and tourist hustlers we found some neat things....More
