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

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!

Staying in Bastille / Oberkampf

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.
