This is definitely something to do in Paris if you are passionate about food. Better still - get a guided tour with someone who can give you background about French produce. The French are absolutely passionate about their fresh food, and view the producers as having highly important jobs. This market is a true feast for the senses with so... More

Great permanent market building, with a wonderful selection of local vendors. There is also an outdoor market with a flea market a few days a week. Good spot to pick up a stuff for a picnic lunch (try the nearby promenade plantais). All the food was great looking, and offered by vendors that take great pride in their products.

All fresh produce is on display and everything looked prime. Vegetables and fruits to please anyone. Close by is the flea market with lots of little treasures to grab. Don't miss the coffee at Aouba.

If you're in Paris and you haven't visited the Marche d'Aligre...what are you waiting for?!?!?! This place is amazing, full of local produce and some truly excellent butcher shops, cheese shops, etc. Both the outdoor and covered parts of the market have really interesting stalls and vendors, and it's cheaper than going to a grocery store to buy your food....

After reading how great this market is, we went last year and didn't understand all the love. But the indoor part was closed, and we thought perhaps that was why we were so underwhelmed, so we tried again this year. Still disappointed and the indoor section was open this time, but it's small and nothing special. The outdoor market is... More

They sell fresh fruits and vegetables every morning, but there are more stalls on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Prices are lower than those in supermarkets, and you can compare different stalls and find the lowest price.

Marché d'Aligre is an excellent daily market in the neighborhood about 1km east of Bastille. It's open every day except Sunday. The street market on Rue d'Aligre is open in the mornings, the covered market morning and afternoon. It's not the fanciest or moist beautiful in Paris, but it's a genuine neighborhood place with terrific products: fruits and vegetables, grains,... More

I always try to pay a visit to this market as it is the closest thing to a real French market, except in the east-center of Paris. Amazing produce, charcuterie, and wine tasting. And when you are tired just find one of the small restaurants or wine bars around to take a break.

We were unsure what to expect here. We just wanted to do something that wasn't so touristy glam. The meeting point made us a little concerned prior to meeting Stefan but within minutes he had us totally enthralled with the breadth of his knowledge. I was surprised as to the extent of his culinary experiences. We are Australian and he... 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.
