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

Lovely to wander through the streets, buying something here and something else there. Everything from artisan bread, patisserie, fruit and vegetables which are beautifully displayed, meat, chicken and fish. The locals shop here and it is unspoiled. Full of genuine Parisian atmosphere. The people are friendly and dont mind you standing for ages while you decide what you want to... More

We prefer Maubert Mutualite but this market is also worth visiting. This is where we found the chickens roasting with their juices helping to cook the roast potatoes beneath them! Good selection if fruit and veggies.

i love wandering around in street markets wherever I visit a place... patisserie, charcutier, cheese, seafood, wine, chocolate... then people playing music on the street... and I bought some clothes from a local designer at her shop!

This is arguably the best market street in Paris. If it's edible, you will find it there. Amazing cafes, patisseries, fromageries, fruit and vegetable stands. For residents it's a great place to shop for meat, poultry and fish. I lived close by for years and it remains my favorite market. Just wandering around gives you a sense of the real... More

Very close to where we were staying and we loved it - truly felt that this was unspoilt Parisien life at its best with all the local fishmongers, artisan boulangers etc, all local residents visiting their local shops Very stark contrast to the commercialism of a lot of Paris

This market is only open Saturday and Sunday mornings, and I think Wednesday morning. Besides a food market with fruits and vegetables, it is a big flea market with lots of cutlery, china, crystal, amazing collection of wine glasses, all for great prices. Along rue Mouffetard are many boulangeries, patisseries, fromageries and chocolatiers. We past a line for Maison Morange... More

My wife and I recently spent a weekend in Paris and had the great fortune of staying right near Rue Mouffetard. Although the market is only open at specific times, the atmosphere is superb whether the market is open or not. If you are a 'foodie' Rue Mouffetard is the perfect place to wander, have a drink or something tasty... More

It is a typical parisien market with a lot of fruits ( in the summer), fishes and Fromage!!! Also the shops near by are great! I Highly recommend it. You have to go before noon for the street market.

Buy a baguette at Monge, a selection of cheeses at Androuet and have a terrific picnic at the park at the end of the Rue Mouffetard. A magical moment.
