Great local food shopping area with delicious 'stalls' selling regional French delicacies including a fantastic arrays of goats cheeses, charcuterie , pastries and seasonal produce. We also enjoyed an authentic, good value brasserie lunch (charcuterie plate and French onion soup were both excellent) between shops at Le Mouffetard

we wanted to buy items for a riverside lunch on the Seine and searched TripAdvisor for a fresh market. This one caught our eye so we took the Metro early Sunday morning. Not too large, but good selections of the items we wanted. Fresh bread, great cheeses, fresh fruit, some thinly sliced prosciutto, and a bottle of Champagne completed our... More

This street is awesome. My wife loves to explore markets so when I saw this on trip advisor I knew we had to go. We started with some coffee and muffins at "Dose" coffee shop. It was a great, hip, little cafe with free WiFi so we were able to sit back and kind of plan our day. The barista... More

Visited here for a walk around and we were impressed by both the number and variety of shops and stalls selling fresh fruit, cheese, wine and meat. We are foodies and we lost ourselves for a good few hours as we wandered around the shops. I imagine that local people are spoilt for choice. The atmosphere is relaxed, people helpful... More

Prices are comparably high in this market, although my friend who lives in Paris told me that quality of food is higher there. There are cheese, cake, meat product, seafood and other shops in this market. The market is open on weekends. There is another market to east, which is less expensive.

Rue Mouffetard is a nice little streat, with a great atmosphere, especially in the summer months. Near this street,there was a market on sunday, a local food market. We loved it. We were the only tourists, speaking a little bit french, ordering amazingly great cheese to eat for lunch with bread and confiture. The people on this market are very... More

We visited on a sunday and stuck around after midday at the end of the street opposite the church. We went for brunch at La Salle A Manger and waited for the band to come and play and watch the people dance. Its a wonderful time of day. There is a park close by for the kids and the shops... More

We strolled close this street trying to find it. We enjoyed a great time there, trying cheeses, breads and the atmosphere in 2011 and we tried to find it again. Fortunately we found it and walked up and down, window shopping and buying several types of cheese, bread and cakes. Lovely and charming!

Rue Mouffetard is a very interesting Paris landmark. One can go and visit the regular market for food - great variety and quality but a little more expensive than elsewhere. The restaurants are quite small, relatively inexpensive and quality food. Highly recommended. Any time we visit Paris we always visit a minimum of two or three times.

I used to love walking through this long street but it's starting to lose it's charm. It's quaint but there are touristy restaurants and if you're here to shop for food expect to pay a little more for being on Rue Mouffetard. It's hilly with cobbled streets and watch out for cars coming in behind you. If you have an... More

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendor and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighborhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
