Nice place

Ambience and this market feels very as the historical Paris. Far from touristic spots and close to the real Parsian Lifestyle.

The avenue is in deed narrow and a little windy and it's filled with shops offering lots of fine ingredients for cooking but I found the offerings no different than any other market street in the city and I also noticed that prices were a tad on the high side. Coffee for 2 in a cafe on the street set... More

If you want to experience Parisian local life at its best, this is the place to visit and relish. It is bustling with just about everything in the true mom and pop style, not the big supermarkets. It is dotted with numerous eating places, and it is all on a walking pedestrian street. Keep walking down for about a kilometer,... More

It was really cool to check this out, it is very local and most of the products are foods meant for cooking at home, but they do have some merchants selling stuff you can bring home if you are visiting. The name is a bit misleading, the market was in place monge right where the metro stop is which is... More

Rue Mouffetard is particularly known and famous for its market, but the street is also very nice on days without the market. The restaurants and bars are still there, so don't miss this. And in December the street is decorated for Christmas. Also have a look at one of the side streets - Rue du pot de fer - with... More

If you're in the area, or passing by, it's not a bad idea to visit. Although it doesn't seem to have the character, or hustle and bustle, of a Must See attraction, it does offer a nice stroll among mostly Parisians. You go, just to say you've been.

It was a nice afternoon, I believe the market runs nearly every day of the week. A nice old fashioned style street set up. Not as nice looking as the other markets I visited this month but still nice. Vendors were also not as cheery.

If you live near rue Mouffetard, it is a good idea to visit the market that takes place on Rue Mouffetard on mornings from Tuesday to Sunday. Here, you can buy fresh produce for the whole week. However, I would say that the markets on bd Richard-Lenoir or Aligre in the eastern part of Paris are far more interesting.

An explosion of pleasant smells, tastes, and colors. It was a fun spot to visit even if we didn't buy anything.

The oldest street in Paris is touristy, yes, but also filled with charm and history. If you are in the neighborhood, it is well worth a walk-through. Great food stalls and food shops. Yes, a few touristy places, but overall a great way to spend a morning.

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.
