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

I visited last year and will be going to Paris again in two weeks and will make this one of the important areas of Paris to show my son. The fruit and cheeses and displays of pastries and fish are amazing as was the smell of spit roasting chicken and the musicians in the street. We bought bread and cheese... More

All the Paris charm in a beautiful neighborhood that is quieter this time of year. 100 restaurants to choose from. I come back here often!

If you are visiting the attractions like the Latin Quartier or the Pantheon on the Left Bank, you really should consider visiting the Rue Mouffetard as well. Instead of having your lunch or dinner in one of the most touristic spots in Paris anywhere around the Place Michel, you'll find restaurants along the Mouffetard that offer the quality and price...

We were there in mid-september, around 10, just when they opened the stands, so it was not to many tourists on this beautiful Paris-street.

Rue Mouffetard is a partly pedestrianised street that has everything you need for living life the French way. Located in the 5th arrondissement, it is a bit off the tourist route but that just adds to the charm. At the southern end it is all about fresh food - fruit, vegetables, bread and pastries, cheese, seafood, butchers and small goods,... More

Rue Mouffetard has it all --a street market with stalls featuring veggies and fruit at the lower end; bars and restaurants higher up; and little shops throughout, selling seafood, cheeses, wine, meat, pastries and much, much more. Late Sunday mornings, you can even find residents in ethnic attire, dancing to accordion music. Parisians and tourists mingle, enjoying the sights and... More

An absolute must ..... don't leave paris without walking this street. Wonderful brasseries, cafes, you won't be disappointed. Love the busyness, the hustle, the french vibe.
