The Best Flea Markets/Marché aux Puces in Paris

Shakespeare_79 Marché d’Aligre
Place d'Aligre

75012 Paris - Metro Ledru Rollin (line 8)
Small but cute in the middle of a great fruit and vegetable market. There are some vintage clothing stalls including one with a huge pile of hats which seem to be from the 1900's onwards and not too expensive.
Hours: Tues. - Sat., 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Sun., 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Marché aux Puces de Montreuil

avenue de la Porte de Montreuil
75020 Paris - Metro Porte de Montreuil (line 9)
Good for second-hand clothing, parts for cars, showers and hot bikes. Can have a bit of an edgy vibe, keep your wits about you.
Hours: Sat. - Mon., 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Marché aux Puces de la Porte de Vanves
avenue Georges Lafenestre & avenue Marc Sangnier
75014 Paris - Metro Porte de Vanves (line 13)
350 stalls: furniture, trinkets, paintings, fabric, glassware, watches, jewelry, military objects, photography, music, and sundry bizarre items. One of the best.
Weekends; avenue Marc Sangnier until 1 p.m.; avenue Georges Lafenestre all day.

Les Puces de Saint-Ouen
48, rue Jules Vallès
93400 Saint-Ouen - Metro Porte de Clignancourt (line 4)or Porte de St-Ouen (line 13)
Biggest but not the best in my opinion. Furniture, pictures, new and second-hand clothes. Skip the crappy part at the beginning with Bob Marley T-shirts and insence. Make sure to bring cash and HAGGLE.
Sat. - Mon., 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

For furniture the best section is Marché Paul Bert 18, rue Paul Bert or 96, rue des Rosiers, 93400 Saint-Ouen
Some of the world's famous decorators come here regularly in search of that rare piece. 220 dealers offer Parisian bistro furniture, decorative ornaments, Renaissance objects, Primitive Art, and some junk.The best time for serious buyers is Friday at 6am and Saturday at 7am.
A great restaurant in the area is Le Paul Bert, at 20, rue Paul Bert
