Marché aux Puces de Montreuil

 

This vast, bustling and eclectic flea market has it all.

Colourful fabric, car parts, halaal food, fur coats, old books, second hand clothing, house hold items and more than you could hope for.

Venture out to the 20th arrondissement and allot a few hours to explore this fun market and spend time to chat with the playful vendors.

Surfacing from the metro, you will discover opportunistic sales people lining the streets.  Don’t be fooled into thinking you have reached the markets, continue on over the roundabout, until you reach this great market, slightly on the seedy side, but that keeps it interesting.

 

Items of new and old, curious and practical draws the local crowds in search of a bargain.  Whether it be some second hand jeans, a fancy hat, a pair of socks, some colourful fabric or my recent treasure;  some old, bone handled knives that I snapped up for a couple of euros, you will be sure of a small gift or souvenir to take home.

Take a break at one of the delicious food vendors, sit back and relax, eat a crepe, dine on some  yummy middle eastern food, or have a coffee, before you continue on your bargain hunting.

 

 

The last time I visited Marché aux Puces de Montreuil, with my fingers freezing from the cold, a jovial and kind stall holder, snapped down the switch of an electric toaster and offered that I could warm my hands by the heating element!

 

 

Marche aux Puces de Montreuil is a fun and exciting market and well worth a visit. Who knows what treasures you may unearth.
