A perfect place to shop for anything…or nothing
Take the subway north a little just below the Périphérique to all the market streets around Saint Ouen. From cheap and cherish-able junk to ancient antiques, you can find most anything here.
A great way to while away a morning. Go early though and check the times, often closed in the afternoons.
