Food. Food everywhere. Something to suit every culture and taste; brasseries, bars, fondue; fresh rabbit, spring rolls, crepes, you name it. Funky and energetic. If that's too much, there are two good-sized, well-equipped supermarkets that somehow fold space to fit in there. ,

A very lively street and a real market flavour. We lived in one of the apartment on Mouffetard during our visit there. Fortunately, we lived on the south side because it's quieter during the evenings and in the mornings, it's calm and civilized with the market. Every morning we would go downstairs to visit the two bakeries and also get... More

We went out with some French friends, and ended up getting kicked out of the bar for no reason. Make sure you're not just 'out to be out' but understand local dynamics!

I could walk this strevet every day! It is full of tasty food of all kinds - cakes, fish, meat, cheese, fruit, olive oils...and much more! Flowers, small wineshops, cafees, bars etc. Just to sit on a little cafe watching tourists and locals do their shopping - is awesome. I will always return!

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.

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

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.
