If you're in the area, or passing by, it's not a bad idea to visit. Although it doesn't seem to have the character, or hustle and bustle, of a Must See attraction, it does offer a nice stroll among mostly Parisians. You go, just to say you've been.

It was a nice afternoon, I believe the market runs nearly every day of the week. A nice old fashioned style street set up. Not as nice looking as the other markets I visited this month but still nice. Vendors were also not as cheery.

If you live near rue Mouffetard, it is a good idea to visit the market that takes place on Rue Mouffetard on mornings from Tuesday to Sunday. Here, you can buy fresh produce for the whole week. However, I would say that the markets on bd Richard-Lenoir or Aligre in the eastern part of Paris are far more interesting.

An explosion of pleasant smells, tastes, and colors. It was a fun spot to visit even if we didn't buy anything.

The oldest street in Paris is touristy, yes, but also filled with charm and history. If you are in the neighborhood, it is well worth a walk-through. Great food stalls and food shops. Yes, a few touristy places, but overall a great way to spend a morning.

I first visited the Rue Mouffetard in 1973, and the street was fascinating; now, the life seems to have goneo ut of the place. There are falafel joints and fast-food restaurants. I ate at a quiche restaurant and disliked it so much that I can't even remember the name! Not worth the trip.

A beautiful street market with lots of fresh fruit, veg, meat, cheese and desserts along with an abundance of restaurants and creperies. Reasonably priced meals and when eating before 6.30pm good value deals.

This market, and the street itself is a must for food lovers visiting Paris. With so many cheeses, deli's, wine, chocolate and tea shops let alone some great bars, you need to visit this place to get a small slice of the Paris food scene... delicious!

My family and I stayed for 6 days in Paris and based ourselves in an apartment in rue mouffy. Every morning we watched the fish monger set up his shop front. We bought exquisite pastries and meats from local providors. We had musicians playing right outside the window. The kids loved this safe and lively 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.
