"While most general travel guides list the major Parisian markets, like the famous Marche aux Fleurs and Marche aux Puces de Clignancourt, this guide details all the markets in the city selling food, antiques, books, crafts, and more. Entries provide the standard information for all markets, such as location, days and hours of operation, and nearest Metro stop, as well as the authors' recommendations and detailed descriptions of the articles offered for sale, including specialty items. For travelers with limited time, suggested itineraries list markets by geographic area and open days, which allows the reader to find, for example, a flea market on the Right Bank that is open on Mondays. . . . travelers wanting to experience Paris by strolling its markets with the locals will find this guide invaluable." --"Library Journal"

A pocket sized book with hundreds of listing, the book will save you hours of searching for obscure curios. . . . the book is priceless." --Gridskipper
