I think the company was Viator. My 15th visit to Paris and first tour! Glad I did it the tide was a charming Charlotte. A firecracker. And a bunch of friendly Americans.

Well worth a visit if you're keen to see lots of fresh produce as well as cheese, charcuterie etc. Made me want to buy, take home and cook - something I usually want to avoid when on holiday!

A morning stroll through this market provides two great things--the sight of wonderful food and people watching. On our Sunday visit we saw what we're sure were only Parisiennes, including elegantly dressed women of a "certain age", as the French say, families, dads with children, couples, babes in strollers--every age imaginable-- all filling their baskets and carriers with an eye...

Close to Metro Ledru-Rollin, the market is worth visiting if you wish to taste the local French food. Suggested to visit in the early morning aroun 7:30 - 8:30 when you looked around and feel the local market. Explore and compare around before your purchase. There is one open market with lots of nice organic vegetables. People are friendly even... More

We started the tour and found the market was covered with many tour groups doing the same tour!! One group had a guy on a microphone and we all sqashed into places where another group left. The guide didn't explain much, it was very boring.

This is the first time I review a market the reason being that Marche d'Aligre is something out of the ordinary. If you are longing for 36 months old Comte cheese, beautifully cut chicken parts, super fresh vegetables, this is the place to go. Don't miss the nice small restaurants and coffee places in this very pleasant neighborhood.

Beauvau market has been restored after several months closure due to damage after a fire, it reopened October 1st. I was there and it is as lovely as before, a couple places - including Italian specialties - were closed but otherwise it is as usual, with great selection of prepared foods, fresh produce and baked goods. Aligre remains one of... More

Neighborhood Profile
Bercy / Nation
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.
