Great place to come and find good food if you are self catering. Wonderful meat, fish & charcuterie in the covered market & acres of fruit & veg stall outside. We bought the makings of a fabulous lunch. Flea market also which is interesting to wander around.

This is one of the oldest and best markets in Paris. It consists of a covered market that contains high quality foods including meat, poultry fish smallgoods and vegetables where prices are fairly high. Outside in the square there is a big vegetable and fruit market with a wonderful range of fresh produce together with a small flea market. It... More

This market is an excellent place to shop if you are looking for fresh fruit,veg,fish or meat. There is also a small flea market in the square where a couple of stalls sell new items such as African carvings, scarves etc. We had a very pleasant hour browsing before having a sandwich Mixte (ham and cheese) and coffees. Cafe Richard... More

This is certainly worth a visit for the selection of fresh fruit and veg at very good prices. Clicking on Trip Advisor's link to find the market I expected it to be immediately by the Gare de Lyon, but it is actually about 500m further north/north-east. I went from Gare de Lyon along Rue Hector Malot to the end; turn... More

We came to Marche Aligre one morning last June to see what a marche is. We munched on croissants and coffee at a nearby bakery on the Aligre square and started watching the people. It was wonderful just to stop and drink in the Parisian life in this small corner of the city. We walked around both the outdoor and... More

Lovely Beauvau covered market, outside food market with stalls of fresh produce, and flea market on place d'Aligre square -- so three in one. Compact, open daily (except Mondays) with a great selection, picturesque and atmospheric ..if you are going to visit one market, this would be a good choice. And don't miss Le Baron Rouge wine bar on rue... More

Unfortunately (or fortunately depending which direction you are coming from !) we were unable to buy anything because we had flown over with hand baggage but if we had been vehicle bound we would most certainly have bought a fair amount. Lovely typical French market (not as good as some of those in the provinces but still good nonetheless) with... More

What trip to Paris would be complete without a visit to a local food market? Paris is a mecca of gastronomy. I believe no where in the world do you find people as passionate about their food as the French. We'll never forget being in the Rhone Valley at a wine tasting, mentioning we had some truffles which prompted a... More

Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to this calming neighborhood where real Parisians make their homes.
