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... More

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.

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
