Marche d'Aligre is a real, live, intense, working-class market - with both a covered market and outdoor stands arranged in the nearby Place d'Aligre. These markets are also surrounded by a market district - several streets radiate out from the market, full of tiny specialty food boutiques, ethnic butchers, hardware stores, cafes, tiny trendy restaurants and just about everything else...

This is a very nice place where to buy fruit and vegetables if you don't want to stop at the supermarket. Good price/quality ratio of the goods sold. Very pleasant for a walk on sunny days.

Worth a visit and definitely worth it if you are looking to prepare your own food whilst in Paris. Has a great selection of bakeries, cheese and small goods along with fresh fruit and veg, fish and butchers.

Great variety of food, as well as a flea market with trinkets and second hand books. There's a discount supermarket on one end of the market, where you can buy cheeses and cold cuts almost at expiry date for super cheap prices.

This is a case of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts. The Marche d'Aligre is no better or worse than many such markets--pretty, colorful fresh fruit and veg. The covered market Beauvau has some interesting stalls, including an outstanding cheesemonger, where we scored the Epoisse we can't get in the US. (US pasteurization ruins French cheese.)The...

It's busiest on Sundays. And if the weather is good, you can walk around, find a cafe or a bar, and enjoy the people watching - along with a few glasses of wine and cheese...even though it's only 10am in the morning! This market does not compare to Nice's city market. Hard to find any real farmer's at Aligre. But... More

As doody types we always like to go to a couple of food markets. After hunting this down it wasn't open until 4pm so we went to the cafe/ bar opposite until opening. Things were a bit slow to get going but I guess that was down to the time of the year. Once we started walking round though more... More

We went this morning to buy food for our lunch in our rented apartment. We couldn't ask for more. The indoor market had a fantastic cheese shop and an equally good meat vendor where we bought delicious imberico ham. Outside we bought freshly cooked Cornish hens and roasted potatoes. With the fresh cherry tomatoes and bread to go with some... More

We spent a delightful morning with Alisa Morav, a pastry chef and cookbook author, exploring the D'Aligre market not far from the Bastille. Even though it was raining, the place was bustling with locals out to do their shopping, chatting with the merchants, discussing the merits of the produce. Alisa guided us through the stalls, pointing out how everything there... More

This small market is a much more accessible visit than the big flea markets. There's proper junk for sale, just what I like rummaging through. The food market is adjacent, so you can shop for lunch too. Plenty of cafés in the area too.
