This charming winding street on the left bank in Paris has buildings dating back to the 1789 revolution. Great restaurants inter spaced between markets.

Wonderful little shops and stalls with mainly food products. Cheese, seafood, pastries, ...! Couldn't resist and enjoyed fresh oysters and a glass of wine! Prices are below those you might know from typical tourist spots. The only negative point is that the street market is...More

This is a lovely stroll along the street to look at the food and stuff for sale. There has been a market here for centuries, so you are a part of history. Fun place.

I love this area, This is an authentic little street market, loads of stalls with little shops behind. Take a basket and wander and end up in Place Monge for a coffee while you watch the world go by and pretend you're a local.

Go early and watch them set up. The best stuff goes first, of course.

We recommend you check the Mouffetard Market and they also have a "Contact" page in their website with an email address that you could try to send a message and check if they will open at the day you will be there.

The Rue Mouffetard is a place to go for food and entertainment, not luxury shopping.

Paris Itinerary - 7 Days (8 Replies)
Hey all, As i've read many times - it's important not to crowd my Itinerary too much, as I will just be running from one place to another. I tried not to do that, but am not sure whether my plans are too much or not. I would appreciate if you could help me from your vast exprience (it's our first time in paris - young couple). Good restaurants are very important for us and therefore I booked 4 lunches to Michelin restaurants (they are sometimes our anchor for the day). I also carefully...More

I'm not sure how long you are allowing for lunch. If I had a lunch reservation at a Michelin star restaurant I wouldn't expect to get out in much less than 2-2.5 hours. That might affect museum visits/ tours later in the day.

Rue Mouffetard Market Hours (5 Replies)
I read online that the market is open Wednesday - Sunday but I'm unsure about the hours. On the forums someone said it opens at 10:00am and on another website it says 7:00am. I would like to visit on a Wednesday. Does anyone know what time it opens?

Not exacthly sure what you are hoping to find, but there are a couple of aspects to rue Mouffetard - actual shops, boutiques, little hotels, etc, and also the open air food market, near place St Medard. Established shops keep normal hours, from around 10AM to 7PM, and some close for lunch at mid-day. The open-air market begins around 9AM, and is pretty much done by 1PM. Some food shops, like fromageries and boulangeries, keep regular store hours, and there is always a fruit/veg stall open...More
