An absolute must ..... don't leave paris without walking this street. Wonderful brasseries, cafes, you won't be disappointed. Love the busyness, the hustle, the french vibe.

Such a charming street, with out of this world sandwich shops, and everything foodie. This was a highlight to my trip and I am planning my return in March. We stumbled on this lovely street by accident and left with delicious sandwiches that were by far the freshest and most clean ingredients I've had in a long time. This place... More

To say the rue Mouffetard is just a "street" is like saying Bridget Bardot was just a blond. The Mouffetard Market is a spectacular display of everything Parisian one could ask for. There are fine restaurants, like the Cave la Bourgogne (moderately priced and most excellent) and French pastry shops that display an array of sweets in such tantalizing fashion... More

We went to the market on Wednesday morning as it was setting up. It was like being a kid in the candy store. The variety of olives,cheeses,wines not mention the freshest raspberries, strawberries and peaches I have ever seen. One of the best markets I have been to.

If you want to escape the glmour shops of Champs Elysee then visit Rue Mouffetard. Small boutiques and shops with french lifestyle (wine, cheese and other delicate food). On Sunday morning people are dancing on the street.

We went to see the famous Market Area and were disappointed that the August Holiday period for Europeans also affected the outdoor market. Some shops were open and that provided some relief but the true market experience was missing until next time.

Having been a couple of times in 2006 at Christmas and finding the market a fantastic experience, I was disappointed to find it dead when I visited in August 2014. Probably my fault; I went early on a mid week day. I suspect it is only firing on weekends or after mid morning.

We went there on Tuesday to see the local fresh market. Unfortunately the "real" market was closed, but the small local shops have attracted us Especially the sweets in Les Chants De Ble.

I went to the market on a Saturday morning to do my grocery shopping. Perhaps my expectations were too high, as I had seen it being recommended on one of Anthony Bourdain's programs. The market was smaller than I expected. There are some awesome vendors, it is true, but not all of them are equally good. Just be careful where... More
