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

If you like me are often caught out by the fixed french lunch times then this would be great for you- food is served throughout the afternoon until approx. 8:30pm. All in all the market it a little on the scruffy side but that's not a problem. Fresh produce including fish and meat at the front of the market and... More

This place is all about Le Cornet Vegetarian!!! Located in the Marche des Enfants Rouges ( Farmers' Market ) in the very back, just seek out the huge line of people & this is where you'll find the most delish sandwiches in Paris We got into line around 2pm & about 5 min later, they closed the line to anyone...

We stumbled across this one day as we walked around La Marais. We found out that this is the oldest market in Paris. The food market is small with just a few vendors for produce, cheese, etc. The real draw are the food stands. Although the Japanese looked good, we opted for the more popular Moroccan counter. We worth the... More

This is a wonderful neighborhood food market with the lovely addition of several little food stands or mini restaurants where you can order the produce you see on display whether it is sea food, various meat dishes or even a sandwich. Now this is no regular run of the mill sandwich. The locals queue up at the sandwich stand on... More

In general the food being vended was not up to par. The Mediterranean restaurant in the far corner/back was seriously over priced and the two meat balls will keep you up all night. There are better places to get food in the neighborhood. We were there on a Friday. Not on a day when the street market was operating.

We went reasonably early (9:30'ish) on a Thursday morning expecting to see a bustling french market but found a very quiet (almost ghost town quiet !) area with hardly anything open. We had planned on having a light breakfast there but the opportunity did not present itself. Very disappointing particularly as various guide books had put it down a must... More

We were keen to visit this market as our guide book talked it up but what a disappointment! It's tiny and frankly uninteresting and we were in and out in no time wishing we hadn't bothered.

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

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.
