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!

We went to the market! This was a great street market with all sorts of wonderful fresh produce and flowers. There was even and organ grinder churning out familiar Parisien style music. Definitely well frequented by locals and right in the middle was a covered hall with exquisite foods. In the hall was a full butchery, flower shop as well... More

Food in Paris can be extremely expensive. Even if you decide to buy your stuff at a market/supermarket, you can end up paying a fortune for very low quality products. Especially when buying fruit and vegetables. One of the few places where you can find a ton of excellent products at a decent price is the market of Aligre. The... More

Wonderful place to find fresh local produce that are delicious and addictive. A great market that is clean and refreshing, especially on a good weather. Pro: Sweet bargains on sweeter fruits, lovely photogenic atmosphere Cons: Shady characters in the flea market, aware of pickpockets. Must try: Strawberries and cherries if they are in season (July time is awesome) Recommendation -... More

Marche d'Aligre seems to be an authentic market that does not seem to be heavily impacted by tourism. The indoor market has more limited hours; the outdoor market includes lots of junk in addition to fruits and vegetables. Nearby is the outstanding wine bar Le Baron Rouge. Worth checking out!

If you want to experience a very lively market, this location provides both, open every day but Monday. As much for watching as for shopping. Then for a more serene experience, go to the nearby Promenade Plantee (along Ave Daumesnil) or Viaduct des Arts
