A short Metro ride to this station and you are in the middle of a local market. Had some great eats, picked up a few souvenirs (they are much less expensive here than near the 'sights') and you are right on the edge of the Marais, another great section of Paris to get lost in.

I visited this market on Thursday, the regular market day, and on Saturday when it's a handcrafted market. Selection is bigger on Thursdays and includes produce, meat/fish, premade food, and household goods/clothing. I didn't buy any food, but it looked amazing and had good prices posted when compared to my neighborhood bodega style shops. There were souvenir items, clothing, jewelry,... More

There are many things available at the market, from food to non-food items. In general, souvenirs are lower in prices at this market. We bought food to have eat-in lunch at the nearby apartment that we were staying. No complaints on the roast chicken, grilled potatoes and paella. In addition, the fruits are very fresh and much cheaper here. There... More

According to my family-including two 10 year old children, this has been our best day in Paris. It made us feel as if we were really in Oaris, not just visiting the tourist attractions! We went on Sunday morning, and my children gp have requested this as a second trip on Thursday! Hearing the shouts of the vendors, seeing all... More

Sunday, jut about all the stands are open - Not that way on Thursday. Friends have told me they have seen everything in Paris - The Eiffel -the museums - the Champs Elysees - the Seine - but they have not seen Paris without going to the Richard Lenoir marche on a Sunday morning. I usually start on Sunday with... More

Fresh food arts and crafts - open Sunday 7am -3 pm and Thurs 7 am -2.30pm. Whether browsing, buying or just observing, these are interesting stalls in the middle of the wide street. I suggest if you are not in the Marais district get the Metro to say Richard Lenoir or Breguet Sabin. As you weave your way through the... More

I love this market. I shop there everytime I'm in Paris. I love the fresh ravioli and all the cheeses...the most flavorful vegetables & fruits can be found here. There are also vendors selling lovely flowers and jewelry, clothing and so much more. If you enjoy markets be sure to visit this one next time you're in Paris.

It's a food lovers paradise. This was my first food market in Paris and my favourite. If you're in Paris on Sunday, I highly recommend going and bringing shopping bags or even a suitcase with you if you're on your way home. It's the biggest market I've been to in Paris and it's very busy. I always pick up fruit... More

If your accommodation has an equipped kitchen, make a point of your visit to the market by buying some produce, a rotisserie chicken, and bread to fix up dinner (even better, buy the potatoes that are bathed in chicken juices too). You'll save money on eating out and also sample the quality produce available in Paris. The semi-home-cooked meal we... More

Students and young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait for coveted tickets during the day. Towards Republique, skateboarders practice their tricks while others chill out at the square. If you’re looking for late-night revelry, this is your neighborhood.
