This Friday market is a must, unless you can't handle sensory overload: fresh fish, olives, nuts, spices, clothing, hats, sauerkraut, paella, and above all, cheese. Oh, the cheeses -- so hard to choose, but the sampling is heaven.

This square is in the middle of the Left Bank university area, a place where people live and work. Our friends live nearby. Good market held here on some days. Otherwise a crossroads and a big Metro stop.

We went twice to this market in our one week trip to Paris it was so much fun. The food stalls are absolutely divine and we found mussels, cod, cheese, baby artichokes, cherries, olives, currants, lettuce.... ALL incredibly fresh and beautiful and tasted great when cooked. The clothing item stalls have a wide variety of bags and shoes and scarves and tops. Beautiful floral shop and butcher. This is a really great local market. Wish it was on the corner next door!!

It is a local market I love to find when I travel. Nice atmosphere. Fresh, local (but not only) products. You may find in such places everything you may need for fich in taste meals. We got there vegetables, cheese, crab salad and some other products. Our fridge looks so interesting now. Evening sandwitches were great. Open on Wensday and Sunday!

Except for market days, this is a big concrete expanse that often serves as a shortcut between two points by pedestrians in the area but not much else. In winter, trees are leafless and the water has been turned off to the simple central fountain. When I passed by recently, a woman sat on the edge of its big basin. A few electic rental scooters had been left at the two Line 7 Metro exits/entrances located on the square’s north and south sides. Many of those exiting cut across the square, en route to their destinations. Fast forward to my return the next day during one of the three weekly markets (Wednesday, Friday and Sunday). Neatly arranged stalls filled the area. Items for sale included flowers, fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, cheese, clothes, cookware and pasta. At 10 a.m. on a Wednesday in March, most vendors waited for customers. A neatly dressed beggar followed me for a while with his hand outstretched. I thought the offerings were beautifully presented and all looked good. Had I been renting an apartment in the area for my stay, I definitely would have shopped here. Market days generally get fully under way around 8 a.m. and end in early afternoon. At other times, a visitor would likely wonder why this square is listed as an attraction. For those who plan to explore the Latin Quarter, I suggest doing so when the market is operating to see local activity. Located near rue Monge and rue Mouffetard, Place Monge is also easily accessible from Jardin des Plantes and Arenes de Lutece.
