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!

You can't go wrong going to any of the Trader's Food Markets in Paris, but this one has to be one of my favorites. Conveniently located at the Place Monge subway stop on the Number 7 Metro line, you'll be wisked up the escalator and dumped into the middle of a wondrous chaos of food vendors. The colors and aromas... More

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.

Went to Place Monge, Rue Mouffetard on a Saturday evening, but it was fairly simple and touristy, somewhat deserted, ok for a drink but didn't really have an authentic feel to us.

Loved Place Monge! Great place for you to just chill and people watch at cafes. Street filed with diners and restaurants - Italian, Japanese, Turkish, French etc. After dinner, head to one of the many bars in the area and enjoy Place Monge which comes to live at night especially in the summer!

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.

Visited the market this morning. Good range of fruit, vegetables plus meats, cheeses and seafood. Assorted clothing stalls as well. Fresh food was excellent and we stocked our apartment well. If you are staying nearby it is worth a visit. Metro adjacent to the Market.

Small weekend market offers a a wide range of fruit, vegetables, seafood, cheese, as well as Lebanese Morrocan and other African food. We found the stall holders to be exceptionally friendly and were very generous in their extra offerings as we purchased food from them. All this was the basis for a fabulous feast of great food back in our... More

Visit the place out of market hours, in which it is just another place in the city. So without the market is not worth a visit.

We went there on a Sunday Morning. This is a nice small Farmers Market. It is nice to see, but nothing special I haven't seen before. Still if you merge it with a walk on the area, go for a nice coffee on one of the small boulangeries and walk about the Latin Quarter its really worth the trip.

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendor and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighborhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
