This food market was really surprising in a good way! It has a lot of variety of food and also affordable. It can get really busy on sundays but is worth it!

This smallish marche in the Marais is interesting, buzzing with people and character. On a cold winters day, it was going off. The Moroccan food had a very long queue which usually means good food. It is not shiny and nice in traditional sense but my husband and I liked the genuine atmosphere, smells and locals here.

Lots of different inexpensive foodie choices here in this covered food market, ethnic and otherwise. Grab some fast Asian food, some mussels... Or some chocolate chaud.

Go early, some stores were closed when we got there. My gut was not begging to eat there. Don't know why if I find it not interesting to eat Asian,Moroccan or vegetarian food that day. We ended up eating at the corner restaurant, Café Du Marche. Actually I wanted to try the Alain Miam Miam, although it gives me a... More

The real "plus" of this market is that all normal stands are coupled with restaurant tables, so that you can choose your fresh food (vegetables, fish, meat) and eat at the same place either "in Japan" or "in Lebanon" or "in Morocco", etc. The prices are normal prices. It's so tiny that you have to come at 11:30 as to... More

Gret place to visit the "real" Paris with not that many tourists about. Feel the real Paris and have a lunch in one of the many restaurants that are her in this market and get something to eat at home/hotle room

This market is pretty small, many of the stalls were vacant. Produce may be from local area, but much of it looked old. Beware of the first prepared food stall on your left upon entry, vendor MONIQUE.. They charged 22 euros for a 4 lb baked chicken. You can pick up a fresh cooked chicken at any super market for...

It was too empty and not completely covered. Not to do in rain. The prices and quality of the products of the stores were disappointing.

This is the oldest market in Paris, you must go there if you want to buy good pastry, breadm fruits, vegetables and even flower. It's very nice place to walk in and you MUST try the sandwiches and crepes from Chez Alain Miam Miam!

My grandmere grew up in this area and we were anxious to go to the oldest covered market she must have gone to in the early 1900s. It was just wonderful! There is so much varietyand the locals seem to enjoy shopping the various stalls. I believe it is only on Sunday and one other day during the week.

Neighborhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendor. This neighborhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
