Unlike some other marchés this one has an air that real people shop here daily. Some other markets have gone "bio" and upscale while D'Aligre has stayed focused on good, fresh produce at reasonable prices. Very multi cultural. Vendors line a short street into the circular Place. Very non descript buildings except for the main market. Outside flea market is... More

Busy interesting place, lots of fresh fruit, shop around for best prices which vary widely. Avoid getting a "guided tour" - no real need or value added.

This is a wonderful market located between the Bastille and Gare de Lyon in the 12e. The prices are very reasonable and it is chock full of color and local flavor. It is a must place to buy food for a picnic and affordable meals at home.

We love open air markets. When in Paris, we buy all our food in them. On our last visit we stayed near the Bastille, and our host suggested Marche d'Aligre. We fell in love. A large selection of fresh fruits and vegetables, displayed like sweets - colourful, inviting, beautiful. And not only fruits and vegetables, you can find everything in... More

Winter, Spring and Summer, the Marche Aligre is a great place to visit. Start with a visit to Ble Sucre, the tiny pastry shop, for breakfast. Of course the fresh fruits and vegetables are a pleasure to look at, and it is impossible to resist at least one purchase.Go early.

This daily market is bustling with Parisians. So many colorful fruits and vegetables, cheeses, meats and a flea market in the place of the oldest market in Paris. It is half indoor (covered) and half outdoor. A different way to see Paris!

Wonderful fruit and veg market, plus flea market. I regularly visit this market when I'm in Paris. Set in pleasant residential part of Paris with lots of interesting bars and shops around the market.

The six of us had been to the big Paris sites. Now we hoped to find some good junque at the daily flea market at Place d'Aligre. We arrived late morning from the metro stop, making our way through the gorgeous fruits and vegetable stalls to the end of the street. The atmosphere is lively and worth a visit. We... More

Take Bus 86 along Rue du Faubourg St Antoine from Place de la Bastille or get the Metro to Ledru Rollin. The Market is a 1-minute walk down Rue de Cotte, which is on the right-hand side as you leave Place de La Bastille. This is a street market plus a more up-market covered market with permanent shops selling every... More

Neighborhood Profile
Bercy / Nation
Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to this calming neighborhood where real Parisians make their homes.
