We visited around 2pm & there was not much action going on. Was nice to get out of the touristy areas into what felt like a normal parisienne neighborhood. There were still some nice bars & cafes open & I can imagine what it would be like earlier in the day.

Marché Mouffetard is a lively, busy market along one of the oldest streets in Paris, and it features a seemingly endless variety of fresh produce, fish, meats, and delicacies--some truly Parisian and others a mix of multicultural treats. From early morning until late afternoon, you can enjoy all the sights, sounds, and aromas of this wonderful place. In the early... More

Easy-going and lovely street of market stalls and shops. It's a permanent market so you can go on any day and find plenty open and happening. You can get a lot of classic French everyday foods and delicacies, as well as cuisines from Asia and the Middle East (some with a French twist). Great place for a wander and next... More

Described by Hemingway as a 'wonderful, narrow crowded market street'. A must visit is you want to sample the local market scene in an area away from the normal tourist crowds. Nearest metro stops: Place Monge or Censier-Daubenton

This area is away from the tourist crowds and will let you see Paris as a place where people live. Restaurants and shops in the area are charming and authentic unlike the crowded places near the major attractions. Prices are very reasonable compared to the tourist oriented places.

This is a cobble stoned narrow street with squares as would have been the case in the 18th century as evidenced by some of the dates on some of the houses. It is also noted for it's good value restaurants, French, European and ethnic together with artisan bakeries and cheese shops. Metro to Place Monge on line number 7

Wonderful way to spend a morning in Paris, wandering through the street market, viewing the antique stalls and buying food from the fantastic fresh food proprietors to take on an impromptu picnic. Delicious goods on sale and a great selection.

The atmosphere is great and walking up the street to buy products or just to visit it is very pleasant. You find a lot of good products, the prices are fine, it is much more interesting than shopping at one of the supermarkets, and the shop owners are friendly. Rue Mouffetard is also located in a very interesting part of... More

Rue Mouffe is the classic Paris food market street, but there are a lot of tourist shops mixing in, and the experience is somewhat mixed. Don't arrive too early in the morning, since a lot of the places have not had time to set up properly yet.

The rue Moffetard market has been on the street for decades. Most of the whole street used to be given over to food stalls where now there are tourist restaurants and small shops. Still worth a stroll down and a drink at one of the cafes that surround the place Contre Escarpe at the top of the street.

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.
