Porte de Clignancourt

This far-north Paris neighborhood's world famous flea market attracts crowds despite its distance from the city's center.

Porte de Clignancourt is an everyday neighborhood with an unconventional attraction. Its world famous flea market, Marche aux Puces, comprises knotted streets and cramped antique stalls that recall the vivaciousness of old-world medinas. Over 3,000 shops and vendors fill the market with forgotten treasures, vintage finds, and creatively recycled goods. If shopping isn’t your bag, Porte de Clignancourt's intimate cafes and ethnic eateries offer alternative options to treasure hunting. You can also journey into Paris' core via the Metro—although it takes some time to get into the city’s center.
