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.

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

I love this market because of the variety and mix of products. You can get anything from the lowly potato - in all its many forms - to truffled cheeses and fine wines. There are two cafes to people watch from, and, on the weekend, you'll be entertained by musicians at both. The seafood is remarkable. Both on the street... More

This is a huge daily street market where locals and restaurant chefs buy veggies, fruits, meat, poultry, fish.etc..... The prices are reasonable and the selection is amazing. We picked up bread, cheese, tapenades, olives and meat for a picnic. You won't be disappointed, for two we spent $10 euros. You can have a small taste of almost anything before you... More

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.

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.
