The old part of the covered market is having a makeover and is due to open 1st October. If you like real markets in a vibrant buzzy area this is worth a visit. Good local eateries and bars too.

A good fruit & veg market, decent prices and not so many tourists around as Bastille's. Worth a visit if you're in need of some goods.

I have to say that I'm surprised by the rave reviews this market has received from many on TripAdvisor. Perhaps it's the first French market some have visited? The truth is it's pretty average, although the fact that the inside market is closed for refurbishment at the moment might mean I didn't see it at its best. But truth to... More

The market is situated both within the covered area and along the streets. Interesting place to visit and taste the various seasonal fruits and vegetable. It's also an interesting place for photographers to take the local scenes. If you are staying in an apartment while on holiday, do come here to get your groceries. It's fresh and inexpensive.

Have you a ever wondered what a vegetable market should be; this is it. Open Tuesday Sunday, basically in the mornings. Vendor upon , selling a endless variety of fresh vegetables and fruits. Prices vary.

This market was in walking distance of the Latin Quarter. After some difficulty, we managed to find it. It is located behind (probably a half-mile) the Bastille monument. The produce is lovely as well as antiques and the general flea-market items one can expect at an open-air market. A sign proclaims it is the oldest continuous market in Paris. This... More

What a great array of really good quality produce. Wonderful fruit and vegetables, cheeses, charcuterie... Knowledgeable vendors are willing to advise on the most suitable items for your needs, and it doesn't seem to be on the tourist trail.

How Parisienne do you want to feel when you go to Paris? Well one way is to go marche-ing for the freshest produce, for the assortment of saucissons , and for just being in the midst of all the colors. But you have to go and at least buy half a kilo of cherries or a melon ( it was... More
