We came to Marche Aligre one morning last June to see what a marche is. We munched on croissants and coffee at a nearby bakery on the Aligre square and started watching the people. It was wonderful just to stop and drink in the Parisian life in this small corner of the city. We walked around both the outdoor and... More

Lovely Beauvau covered market, outside food market with stalls of fresh produce, and flea market on place d'Aligre square -- so three in one. Compact, open daily (except Mondays) with a great selection, picturesque and atmospheric ..if you are going to visit one market, this would be a good choice. And don't miss Le Baron Rouge wine bar on rue... More

Unfortunately (or fortunately depending which direction you are coming from !) we were unable to buy anything because we had flown over with hand baggage but if we had been vehicle bound we would most certainly have bought a fair amount. Lovely typical French market (not as good as some of those in the provinces but still good nonetheless) with... More

What trip to Paris would be complete without a visit to a local food market? Paris is a mecca of gastronomy. I believe no where in the world do you find people as passionate about their food as the French. We'll never forget being in the Rhone Valley at a wine tasting, mentioning we had some truffles which prompted a... More

with additional stalls too. The covered market is packed with gloriously arranged fruit, vegetables, meats and cheeses - everything you will need to self-cater your stay. The market spills out into the surrounding square and up a side street where you will find much more, including a flea market. About a 30 minute walk from the city centre, this is... More

Marche d'Aligre is a real, live, intense, working-class market - with both a covered market and outdoor stands arranged in the nearby Place d'Aligre. These markets are also surrounded by a market district - several streets radiate out from the market, full of tiny specialty food boutiques, ethnic butchers, hardware stores, cafes, tiny trendy restaurants and just about everything else...

This is a very nice place where to buy fruit and vegetables if you don't want to stop at the supermarket. Good price/quality ratio of the goods sold. Very pleasant for a walk on sunny days.

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...

Staying in Bercy / Nation

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.
