Why We Love This Holiday:

holiday overview

Highlights / General details

We meet outside the closest metro station, at a short distance from the flea market, at the spot where everything started. We discuss the 150 (some say 800) year history of the flea market.

Stroller or shopper? The guide inquires about everyone’s interests, and crafts the tour accordingly. She hands you a map of the different markets, and signals what markets and what stores are likely to carry the products and style you are looking for.

We visit several markets – eclectic Vernaison, high-end Biron, hip Serpette, cozy Dauphine, street-style Malik, poor man’s Jules Vallès, or over-the-top l’Entrepot, it depends what the group wants to see.

Our Paris Flea Market tour aims to introduce you to a range of markets – to each their own, each market is different in products, prices, and style.

We discuss how to shop – how do you tell an authentic from a copy, how do you negotiate price, and what else do you negotiate besides?

On occasion we interview some of the vendors – they know our guide, so they are more friendly and forthcoming. We learn what it’s like working at the Paris Flea Market as an antiques dealer.

The tour ends in the heart of the Serpette market, next to the eateries. The guide gives orientations to each guest – one catches the bus back to Notre Dame, others walk back to the metro with the guide, and most linger on in the market for an afternoon of shopping.

•In less than 2 hours, get a comprehensive overview of the 15 markets.

•Learn to sniff bargains and to negotiate Paris-style.

•Meet the characters – Louisette, Mr. Hot Jazz, Prince Malik and Slumdog Duke –•Meet market dealers and hear their stories.

•A balance of shopping tips and good stories so everyone enjoys the tour.

•Very small groups so the tour is tailored for your interests and you get your questions answered.

•An experience unlike any other in Paris.
