We accidentally stumbled upon this market on our 1st trip to Paris. What a surprise to see it unfold in front of our eyes, while we were lost. We've been to Paris 5 times & go here each visit. We've gone on a thursday, but were disappointed, as there is not much prepared food, or goods. So Sunday is the... More

One of my favourite places to visit on a trip to Paris! It's the perfect place to pick up fresh fruit, salumi, cheeses, bread, olives and wine for a picnic lunch. The quality of produce is great, as is the atmosphere and opportunity to watch the locals do their shopping. Highly recommended to those who want to escape the touristy... More

Great opportunity to feel the local spirit, lovely food, colorful veggies, exotic fish, loud people and crowd. An unusual way to visit, but a great way to taste local food. I highly recommend to taste different types of olives.

Most vendors weren't entirely finished when I got here, like the Pain A L'Ancienne Boulangerie that weren't finished stacking up their menagerie of crusty breads and pastries. One of the men, I assume the owner, was getting his work out of squats, twisting, and pulling things out of a myriad of yellow baskets and not irritated by the fact I... More

So many market colourful market stalls selling an array of fresh fish, meat, fruit and veg, clothes and lots of other goodies. Gets very busy so get there early and enjoy watching the local Parisiens filling their wheelie baskets with goodies!

We went to this market on Sunday morning and experienced a Paris away from the touristy crowd. The market was crowded, no doubt, with stalls of fresh food and all other kinds of things (gift items to household goods). There were different kinds of food stalls, and our breakfast consisted of trying out different things from different stalls. Everything was... More

My husband and myself visited this market very early on Sunday morning , it made us very envious of the local people who can shop here every week. The food is just wonderful all set out beautifully. Everything fresh as the day. We bought a couple of things and found the market workers really friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend a... More

One word - FANTASTIQUE! This wonderful market was my introduction to Paris on the first day of our vacation. It has everything from gourmet items, wonderful cheese, fruits, vegetables, imported treats, nuts, olives, breads, chocolate, seafood galore, meats of every kind,spices, and my favourite, merguez sausage! My advice - go on an empty stomach sample everything! You won't be disappointed!... More

Also known as Marche Bastille, very colorful, lots of varieties and qualitative foods (raw or cooked) at this market, surprisingly clean too. A good choice to spend Sunday mornings/brunch. Unlike most markets, they do have areas for you to sit and rest/eat. In addition to food, they also have great finds such as jewellery, clothes, books, records, flowers, etc. with... More

Some don't-miss vendors; freshly-shucked Breton oysters, L'arc en sel de Guerande for salt mixes & amazing fleur de sel caramels, and a cheesemonger who's specialty is the ooziest most delicious Brie de Meaux that I've ever had. Really great for stocking your apartment kitchen or an impromptu picnic. Also a good vendor for crepes & galettes that make a nice... More
