It might be oldest covered market in Paris, but there are better markets to visit than this one - Marche D'Aligre, for example. That said, if you're hungry and want a wide choice of meals it's not a bad option. It seems each of the food stalls has different rules regarding how to order to get your meal. For instance... More

Visited this market but was disappointed with it. A very small market with a few dozen food stalls. There is much better markets to visit in Paris.

Marche des Enfants Rouges is a nice sized market to wander around without getting lost. There are plenty of blow ins just there for fun as well as a fair share of locals shopping. Lots of stalls selling food and seating, including undercover seating with heating in winter. A great place to stop in a beautiful area of Paris.

This is not a typical French outdoor market. There are only about one of each: fruit seller, dairy/cheese counter, meat/fish seller. The majority of the space is little lunch places with a variety of French and ethnic offerings.

Touted as the "oldest covered market in Paris", ok... While you can stock up on fresh provisions such as fruit, fish, meat, etc. it is also a great place to grab lunch; the "market" component of this tucked-away destination is dwarfed by the many little restaurants selling all manner of food. We got in the quickly-growing line of a sandwich... More

I love outdoor markets and visit whenever I happen upon one. To me, this market had more restaurants than fresh food for sale. It was worth visiting, but it is not on my "must do again" list.

A small market and street food market in the center of Paris, fresh products and cool atmosphere. There is a little garden nearby if you need to picnic.

I was brought here by a Parisian friend. This is one of the oldest markets of Paris. Today there are a few fruit and delicatessen stalls but most of the business is made made selling food: rotisserie, lebanese, afro, italian. The market has a nice atmosphere a mix of tourists and locals. I do wonder if most of the shop... More

I wanted to pick up some fresh fruit and travelled a fair distance to come to this market. It was Saturday morning around 10 am and there were hardly any people there. About two different fruit/vegetable stands which sold the same you can find in a super market except more expensive. I was wanting to buy some apples however all... More

There is a cheese shop right next to the market and it is always packed with locals while the cheese stall inside the market, you never have to wait. The price is a little cheaper but it reflects the quality. But I have occasionally bought there when I didn’t have time. I always made sure I bought from an Asian... More

Neighborhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendor. This neighborhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
