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

This Street Market is very typical of what you think of in Paris. We went there on a thursday, it is open Sunday and Thursday from dawn to 3pm. It was a fun free experience all kinds of fish, vegetables, flowers, clothes ect. Fun to walk down the boulevard and see everything. I bought some scarfs for the teenagers at... More

I was walking around the area on Sunday when I happened upon this market. This huge market is something that everyone should experience. There are breads, fruits, veggies, cheeses, fish, meats and take away foods like Paella and pastries. It was a fantastic to see and hear vendors hawking their goods. If I lived in Paris, I'd be there all... More

This huge street market runs thru Av. Richard Lenoir, it is a long sequency of stalls, both sides of the avenue, offering not only edible products but also some quite typical products of France, such as lavender, sailor's shirts or handcrafted goods that can be bought as original gifts to take home. If you love markets, this is the one... More

IF you happen to be staying in the Marais or Bastille area, I highly recommend this Sunday morning gathering of fresh food vendors, that runs for about a mile on both sides of Avenue Richard Lenoir. You'll find yourself thinking "French people are so polite and friendly" based on the people working here, and the fresh fruits, vegetables, fish, meats,... More

I've been to Paris several times and stay in the Bastille/Republique area. This market is just off the Bastille and is on about three blocks of the avenue that covers the Canal St. Martin. It's only open on Thursdays and Sundays from dawn to about 3 pm. If you go at other times, there's nothing there. It has food, flowers,... More

Agree with reviewer who says that this is not much different from regional markets in Mediterranean countries (I admit that I haven't been to many, but have been to plenty in France, some in Italy, and a number of European countries). But, having said that, I love it, and it's my favorite market in Paris (for reference, I have been... More
