Oldest covered market in Paris! Locals go very early when only the fresh seafood, meats and vegitables are on display - and quite a display at that! Go later if you want to eat prepared ethnic dishes that are reputedly delicious, but we did not get to try - still very good place to buy, if you plan on making... More

This market has such a wide range - from cous cous ready to eat to beautiful mushrooms straight from the farm and mounds of fresh berries. So, you can eat takeaway or eat it at the markets but you can also buy the best ingredients to make your own delicious meals at home. The fishmongers have everything from sea urchins... More

Providers and street food vendors coexist in this small market. We were there at lunch time and most of the stall holders were closed by then (including Alain the famous galette/crepe stall holder) but food vendors were doing a good trade - no spare tables! The market and eating set-up is basic (and not in a charming way) but the... More

We were staying in the neighborhood and walked over to see if we could get anything good. I got some produce but it wasn't super. Several food stands and some tables but wasn't very convenient and didn't see anything that really drew us. Nothing really special. Good to go if you are staying in the neighborhood, but not to go...

The marché is very nice with a great atmosphere. However, we went to the Lebanese place and were very disappointed with the service. Our order was taken at the table but one of us then had to queue for 45mins to "choose" our entrées. What is the point of ordering at the table if we then have to wait in... More

It was shockingly awful. We ordered at a table and then had to wait in line for the counter for an hour to choose the starters! The food was, frankly, not worth the wait or the trouble. And they didn't even bring our change!

Visited on a Friday in Late October around 12 noon. Didn't see any flea market items, just food being prepared along with a couple of farmer market stalls and fresh seafood. There was a photo store selling old B & W's and a wonderful little flower stall but most of it was different types of ethnic foods for sale. Toward... More

This place is packed to the rafters for brunch, so go early. My friend and I enjoyed an excellent meal from the Israeli restaurant near the photo studio. In spite of their popularity, the resto provided great service and lots of smiles (in Paris?? Shocking!).

Covered market in the heart of Le Marais with many stands. I tried Chez Alain Miam Miam (https://www.facebook.com/ChezAlainMiamMiam?fref=ts). The best over-stuffed crepes ever! Super fresh ingredients, good french cheese. Try for lunch, but remember that it's quite difficult to eat crepes and walk together! Close to the market, there is a park with benches. In a sunny day, it's perfect!

I am not sure at which of the restaurants, but had my most memorable steak tartare ever here. Not surprising I guess, but will be going back!!
