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

On a day-trip to Paris with friends from Den Haag and Delft. No museums, just wandering around some favourite areas. Had hoped to get lunch in a restaurant nearby the Marché des Enfants Rouges that I know, but they were closed for the day. No matter, we wandered around the gorgeous little market and settled down for lunch at Corossol,... More

The original covered market in Paris, located in the northern Marais. It is a short walk from the Picasso Museum, which makes it a perfect place to pick up a quick and inexpensive lunch from one of the vendors in the stalls. There are tables in covered areas around the market. Fresh fruit and vegetables, some organic, are available.

We were in the neighborhood after spending time at the Picasso Museum nearby, so stopped in at the Marche des Enfants Rouges for a late lunch. It's convenient because they serve continuously from 12 until 8:30pm. Don't be intimidated by the line, because it will move quickly. There are menus posted every few feet, and the food is well-labeled, so... 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.
