A wonderful experience on Sunday (one of three days this "farmer's market" is set up...Tuesday and Wednesday are the other days). A great way to get a synoptic view of the epicurean ingredients available in Paris. Farm fresh vegetables and meats in an extraordinary sampling of the immense varieties available. Quantities and varieties of seafood and fish you'd expect to... More

You can't visit Paris without taking some time to visit all its markets. They are one of the best things of this city! Marché Raspail is a expanse of Merchants along Boulevard Raspail. It's up and running on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays from 7AM to about 2:30PM. Lovely products, lovely people.

This open-air market is well worth going to whenever it operates (Tuesday, Friday and Sunday), but I recommend catching it on Sunday, if possible. That's when the offerings are all organic, from wine to goat's cheese. I head here to select fruits, vegetables and fish to prepare meals when I'm renting an apartment in Paris. And I often buy a...

This is a great market. However, as of April 7 2015, the location shown on the TripAdvisor map is WAY off. This market is next to the Rennes Metro, on Blvd Raspail. The location shown on the map (Rue de Vernedil) is hundreds of yards north-east of the market's true location!

I love markets....and this one is really nice. As others have noted, the onion/potato pancakes are so inviting. Great variety, good crowd, looks and smells just like you wish all markets would.

Marché Raspail is a rather long expanse of merchants along Boulevard Raspail between Métro Stations Sèvres-Babylone and Rennes. The Marché is up and running on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays from 7AM to about 2:30PM, and Sunday has a greater emphasis on organic offerings. Truly Parisian, friendly and fun.

We finally made it over to the market last Sunday. Our main goal was to buy juice oranges but we ended up buying many other wonderful edible items. We were a bit peckish when we arrived at the market, so, we stopped off at a crepe stand for a couple of egg, ham and cheese crepes. They were ok. The... More

The open air market in the median of the Boulevard Raspail is well worth a visit if you like to see a wonderful mix of baked goods, prepared foods, fresh produce, mushrooms, seafood, game and some interesting antiques, as well.

This is my favorite marche, along with Batignolles (Saturday near metro Rome). I've been shopping here for about 3 + years and I have my favorites obviously. We always get English muffins from the French lady married to the American guy. Son likes her other goodies, but we always order the English muffins. The only thing we had that we... More

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighborhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighborhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
