Found marche des enfants rouges while walking around le marais. Great unpretentious market atmosphere. Lots of food options available. Go late afternoon to beat the local lunch time crowds. Super Moroccan food!

During our vacation, accommodated in a flat adjacent to the Marche des Enfants Rouges, we were pleased to find a great selection of ready-made food for take away plus items to keep in our kitchen for snacks. The market is not large, but the food is great, vendors are friendly and selection is wide. We went every day to pick... More

Every website seems to say this place is worth a visit but unfortunately I disagree. We wandered down at 10.30am on a Wednesday morning and there were about six other list looking tourists moving between empty stalls. I felt like it does get busy but who knows when that is??? The opening hours say 8.30am to 1pm and 4pm onwards.... More

We had our first and one of our best meals in Paris at this market's Lebanese stall: a wrap with freshly made falafel and salads and a pressed juice for 10E! A bargain, delicious, and overall a wonderful experience.

This charming open air market is a wonderful place for lunch - except on Mondays, when it is closed. There are quite a few different vendors to choose from (we had Moroccan couscous) but get there early. This is a favourite place for the locals too, and once they are on their lunch break (after 12:30) the line-ups can get... More

I went with unrealistic expectations. They were disappointed. The ambience is 60s tacky. It's not a place to enjoy an abundance of local produce and none of the eateries looked inviting. Though often rated highly this one does not compare well wirh other markets and market streets.

Lovely market with street food hidden from usual tourist pathways. Would totally recommend it as a cozy place to meet with friends on Sunday's, have a lunch, drink some wine and purchasing some fruits and flowers on the way back. And despite of the possible line and time waiting, try (!) crepes from Chez Alain Miam Miam. Totally worth it!

My friend and I came here for lunch and it was amazing. A wonderful selection of food to eat and buy. There are also market stalls outside which sold lovely things. Nice clean toilets here.

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.
