We stopped here on 2 occasions with a a family of four and found good selections and ambiance. The place even turns into a dance bar on the weekend night. Pretty cool.

Definitely worth a visit for foodies. Place is easy to find at 39 Rue de Bretagne. Lots of food stalls to choose from and buzzing on a Saturday afternoon. Frequented by tourists and locals alike. The couscous and tagine chicken with vegetables and preserved lemon from Morrocan stall was one of the best I have tasted. There was a long... More

The Enfants Rouges used to be less known by tourists but is still mainly a Parisian haunt. A review below suggests that it is closed Sunday but we only ever go on Sundays when this street is bustling and you can choose from bakeries, fruit and veg vendors, rotisserie shops, cheese shops, a seven day supermarket and the market itself....

It is perhaps like the Navy Pier in Chicago or the Granville Island in Vancouver. It's a bit of a market, a bit of a bar and a bit of a restaurant (or several restaurants). The fare at most restaurants is rather ... multifarious, caters to a wider international audience and affordable. About 20 minutes by walk from the cathedral... More

A must visit market if you're in Le Marais area of Paris. Open from Tuesday to Saturday, the market is rich in culture, serving a range of North African street style food with fresh produce, flowers and the best vintage photography shop I have come across. Opens around 11.00am, gets busy around lunch time with locals and workers coming for... More

We went at night to buy food for our dinner. Half the stalls were closed at night and the stalls that remained open weren't appealing. We had decent middle eastern food. The cheeses were very good but think we would have been better off at a traiteur.

We spent 12 days in the Marais and often went to Marche des Enfants Rouge, a fantastic experience to see local fresh food, cafes and eating there was great. Staff have english and asked how we wanted our hamburger steak cooked! Not used to this at home, mine rare, yum, melted in your mouth. Range of foods wide and happy,... More

If you're a foodie who enjoys good food and excellent company, you'll enjoy this place. Nestling at the heart of the bohemian Rue de Bretagne, this street market is actually a great spot to sit and have lunch in. Lots of ethnic food vendors - my favourite is the Middle Eastern stall which serves delicious salads and mezzes which you... More

IT is not a place where "real people" go for grocery because there are so many shops on rue de Bretagne, but that is a very nice place to visit, go around and have a street food like lunch on benches all around the market. Lebanese, French, Thai or Moroccan , there is everything.

A friend who worked in paris for 10 years highly recommended this restaurant http://www.les-enfants-rouges.com/ We stopped in for lunch yesterday -- absolutely excellent food - lots of activity to observe walking by as we sipped wine.
