Probably most noted for the food market that is here several days a week. And the market has spawned some good food stores on the streets around it. But it is also a lovely square in the middle of the University area, and we came here to visit a friend who lives near here. We love this area.

Place Monge Market runs three times a week. They sell produce, cheese and also purses, shoes and clothing. Found some toddler shoes that were 15 euros and found out that they sell in the States for around 50-70 dollars. Great deal.

The walk along Rue Monge which is just below Pantheon is a charming and cozy entrance into everyday French life. Lots of shops selling the most delicious foods and then the historic Place Monge with its historic food market!

제목 그대로 역무원이 인종차별자입니다 물어볼게 있어서 번역기에 글을 써서 보여줬는데 핸드폰을 조작하더니 제 사진을 우스꽝스럽게 찍었더군요 역무원에게 용무가 있다면 다른 역으로 가시길 추천합니다

We had the best offerings and the most pleasant experience in this market compared to some others. Definitely a market catering to Parisians, not tourists. Be sure to visit the purveyor of honey and mustards. Seasonal fruits and vegetables, a few prepared foods and wonderful offerings for cheese/charcuterie/meats to take and cook.

We ate for days off the finds we found in the market. The live music and dancers were great too. It was a wonderful day here during the market and we found great restaurants and shops the other days. We returned her many times over our week in Paris.

My friend and I were looking for a place for breakfast early one Sunday morning on rue Mouffetard, but we were too early and absolutely nothing was open. By accident, we went through Place Monge and the Sunday market was set up and ready for us!

I recommend with all my heart the Lebanese stand that is in one corner of the market, selling excellent Lebanese food: hot fatayer, felafel, hummus, and so many more items. We bought big fatayer (a kind of pastry) triangles filled with cheese, tomato, and spinach, which the father heated up for us so that the cheese was melty. We also bought some felafel, and the son threw in a container of creamed garlic for us to dip the felafel in. We bought some lovely fruit for dessert from another stall.

It was 7:30 on a rainy Sunday morning. We were the only customers in the market. We ate our picnic under a big umbrella, happy as two kids can be. We couldn't have asked for a better breakfast.

I hadn't known about the Place Monge Sunday market, but I think I will go back there expressly to eat this wonderful food, served by kind and caring hosts.

The market is on 3 times a week - Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. I visited on a Friday and there was a mix of fresh produce and clothes on sale. It isn't a large market so you can easily make it around all the stands. It is worth a visit if you are staying in the area.

When my wife and I were last in Paris, we took a flat near the Place Monge. One advantage to doing that was being able to use the Market at Place Monge. It runs three times a week--the food is fresh, the vendors are all very friendly and accommodate their customers. This is one way to really understand the wonders of Paris.

This is a small market which we stumbled upon while wandering the neighborhood where we were staying. I had gone out early to a boulangerie and saw vendors setting up. I'm not sure what time the market opened, but I had to wander around and wait to buy even though I thought open markets started early. They had wonderful fruit and cheeses. If you are staying in the neighborhood, it is definitely worth a visit.
