This market is only 5min on foot away from the hotel we are staying at present. Fruit and vegetables are limited what one can buy there but none the less, we buy fresh bananas and apples from there every day. If you are not into fruits, all around their stalls, there are these little places (can't call them restaurant) where... More

Very nice and old market in the middle of the trendy Marais neighbourhood. Take the time to visit all the stands as they aren't too many. We ate at the coin bio who was very good with tables outside.

We stayed in a hotel quite near the Marche des Enfants Rouges, and decided to give it a go on our last day in Paris - and it did not disappoint! With lots of stalls, we decided one with fresh, organic food where you could even get freshly squeezed juice on the spot. Despite knowing only a few words and... More

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.

Staying in Le Marais

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.
