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

Remember this market well from 1989. The fish was not good then. Had a certain raffish quality. Maybe quality has improved . Full of atmosphere but Bastille market better quality

Our guide Sara met us right on time outside the metro station. She was extremely knowledgeable and took her time with us through the market making sure we got to see everything we wanted to see. The wine and chocolate tasting was also wonderful. The area is a bit dodgy but with a guide it feels very comfortable. The flea... More

Great place to come and find good food if you are self catering. Wonderful meat, fish & charcuterie in the covered market & acres of fruit & veg stall outside. We bought the makings of a fabulous lunch. Flea market also which is interesting to wander around.
