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.

This market stretches the whole length of the street and then some. There is a 'Flea' market in the square which is really interesting, lots of books and antiques and rubbish. The Charolais and the Baron Rouge bars are close by if you need refreshment and there is a superb small Chinese Restaurant for an evening meal that's different but... More

Marche d'Aligre is a wonderful market near the Bastille. Fabulous vegetables and fruits as wall as a great cheese vendor plus fresh fish, meat and poultry. I was so happy to just be in the midst of the market goers and vendors. We bought excellent cheese and vegetables that were so fresh. The dinner that night was second to none.... More

We visited the outdoor market in the morning on a Saturday. It wasn't very packed, vendors were very friendly and not pushy at all. We even got a few samples for our little kids, We purchased fresh veggies and fruits and everything tasted just delicious and fresh. Prices are reasonable. There were wine/cheese shops, butcheries, and bakeries all around as... More

I recently visited Marché d'Aligre after reading the great reviews on TripAdvisor. I love outdoor markets (and have been to many in Paris) and this one wasn't as exciting or interesting as the other ones. I found it very small (although there were tons of people there), and the non-food items weren't as numerous or high quality as at other... More

When I used to live in Paris I would make a weekly journey from the 15th all the way here to buy my fruit and vegetables. Excellent quality, great prices and market holders who are great fun. Friday and Saturdays are best. If you're self-catering, or even just want to see some hustle, bustle and take some great photos, you... More

This market is crammed with stalls displaying an amazing array of fruit and vegetables. Carry on walking into the square and you will find stalls selling brick a brac, clothes, handbags etc. I bought some lovely champagne boules for 3 Euro each. There is also a shop selling vintage and old clothes. I picked up an Agnes B coat for... More

We arrived at 1pm to find the outdoor market had closed up for the day, and that the indoor market closes for lunchtime - what, a market that closes for lunch - trust the French!
