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

What a fantastic market. Go on Sunday, lots of little shops but Sundays all the fresh market is set up. The bakery had delicious breads, cakes etc. long lines to buy bread, all fruit fresh. All the locals shop here. Had to ask some locals how to find the markets as I had been taken there about 13 years ago... More

What a place for foodies and photographers. So much to see, a real feast for the eyes and then the stomach. The food shops in Rue Moutetard are stunning and there are many little shops to see too.

Granted, there are a number of tourists, but when we were there on a Sunday morning, the majority of shoppers were "locals." The assortment of food shops is incredible. There was one bakery - I did not get the name - that had a line that was about a half block long. If you enjoy outdoor markets, put this one... More

I love rue Mouffetard. It has everything you could possibly want to put on your table. Fish , meat , cheeses, pastries , delicatessen items , ready made foods from the many traiteurs along the market street . Plenty of good value restaurants and bistros to have a nice lunch in . An ancient church to say a quick prayer... More
