Description: Marche, located in Eugene, Oregon, opened in August 1998. The restaurant, which seats 80 guests, has an exhibition kitchen featuring a beautiful wood-fired oven. There is also a stylish bar and a large outdoor dining area, covered with awnings and umbrellas and surrounded by a garden of herbs and edible flowers. Marche takes its name from the French word for market – a word that describes our location in the bustling 5th street Market and more importantly, our philosophy of cooking. The menu is based on the foods one would find at a farmer’s market: fresh, seasonal, and regional. Marche is committed to using only those ingredients that are at their best, so our menu evolves as we move through the seasons of the year. Marche also believes in using the highest quality and most healthful ingredients available and to that end use organic, free range, and chemical free products. The culinary technique is French-based: intensely flavored and simply but beautifully presented.

Top quality on each of three visits in 2014. We are going back New Years Eve for dinner and then the Opera at nearby Hult Center

Had a meal here while staying at the Inn on 5th next door. The hotel is well designed, nicely decorated and clean. The staff were fine, though not overly warm and friendly - no offer to hang our coats; it was pouring when we left the restaurant but no offer of an umbrella (they were sitting by the front desk)...

Marche always has yummy food and great service. It is especially lovely in the summer at lunch time. During the colder months, it is quite cozy indoors, but be prepared for a wait to get a table!

We had a business dinner at Marche and all of our foreign guests loved the atmosphere, menu offerings, and service. We were in a rush and they were able to feed all of us in a very timely manner. We would highly recommend them to anyone trying to share a pleasant dinner in a more upscale environment.

Any visitor to Eugene must go to the Fifth Street Public Market. Best place to eat is Marche. Fabulous food. In the summer you can eat in their outdoor dining space. I recommend not only to visitors but to locals as well.

Pomme Frites and Portabello Sandwich with a small but delicious side salad is the best choice for a vegetarian with good taste. Desserts are a treat, if you have room for one...or share. Service is great and setting relaxed

We visit Eugene a few times per year to visit our son who is in his second year at the University of Oregon. GO DUCKS! Whenever we visit Eugene, we make it a point to try new places to eat and take our son out who has been eating “dorm food” to a nice dinner. He really enjoys the time... More

The breakfast here is great. It is quite French and it reminded me of many breakfasts I have had in France. Get the baguette toast. You really can't go wrong.The coffee was strong and delicious. Very good service as well. I can't wait to have breakfast here again and will definitely try dinner here next time I am in town.

When we come to Eugene, we must have dinner or lunch at Marche, we are never disappointed. Having travelled in France and Europe, this gives a feeling of being at a nice little French restaurant. The food is so well presented and delicious, the wine list is extensive, desserts are a great way to finish a meal. Service is top... More
