I love this smaller more curated market. Unlike the bigger ones that sell a lot of modern, never-used junk, this has plenty of vintage treasures. I thoroughly enjoy walking around this market even if I don't find anything to take home.

Not worth the trip unless you’re into antiques, Second hand clothes and household seconds. Not worth the trip down to Port de Vanves for me.

This is a simple flea market, lots of used goods, and you might find a bargain. It's best for used books, but there are lots of other things.

- Easy bus or metro access - not junk, lots of really nice pieces (some too large for tourists to get, but lots of smaller pieces) - it may take going along the entire row to find that one small perfect piece.

Yes, go to the flea market first. I usually leave the flea market at about 11 so plenty of time to go to the Catacombs later.
