Foundation & evolution
At the heart of the Paris-Saint-Ouen flea market, the Marché Dauphine is the largest covered flea market, bringing together 150 merchants, over 6000m². In keeping with the times, it has the particularity of mixing antiques, design, contemporary creation, booksellers, record stores, crafts, fashion and pop culture.
In Saint-Ouen, there was a Dauphine passage, traced in fact by the empirical geography of Marché aux Puces. It was on this site that, at the start of the 1990s, a glass-roofed hall was built in the Baltard spirit.
Since its inauguration in 1991, the Dauphine Market has been part of the purest pucière tradition, with specialized merchants, deploying an eclectic and cutting-edge offer to the avant-garde, while developing services and a unique flea exhibition space.
Prestigious, unique, unusual, convivial and lively market, the Dauphine Market is ideally located at the beginning of the rue des Rosiers, the matrix access axis to the Flea markets.
In 2013, Maison Futuro, by Matti Suuronen, emblematic architecture of the 70s, landed in the heart of the Dauphine Market, under its large glass roof; it has been hosting many shootings, shoots, for fashion and music.
