Visited Paris in July 2018. Marche des Enfants Rouges was one of the food highlights for me. So good in fact that we went back three times during our stay. Firstly was the Crepes, they were amazing, I had one filled with ham cheese and...More
We've visited this market twice and, based on reviews, expected to find a vibrant market. Perhaps it was the time of day--late afternoon, early evening, in hopes of buying some carry-out for dinner, especially from the Moroccan stand.
We've been underwhelmed twice. Many of shops...More
Not as wide as the usual city markets in Europe, this is the oldest market in town (1615) that became a pitoresc place to visit and enjoy a meal without lots of popular tourism. There is a shop with marvelous antique pictures and a tend...More
Excellent place to buy some prepared food for lunch, although it will be a challenge to find a place to sit to eat it as there are so few places to sit at picnic benches. Otherwise a small small street market in the midst of...More
An interesting place full of lines, noise, smells and different food options. Worth walking around just to see what it offers. Nothing grabbed us enough to want to stay and eat, however. Perhaps we just weren't hungry enough.
The location in the tony Marais District is great for people watching and drinking, but the food, from a Croque Monsieur to Steak Fries is pretty average. Desserts are better, but a beer or a glass of the local white or red wine will make...More
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.

I don't know but I was there on Christmas Day and it was open but only a couple of stalls were active. I would think it will be more likely to have more stalls open on New Years Day than Christmas but I am not sure.

Marche des Enfants Rluges is super charming, but miniscule and not a rovong market, but a daily one. Still worth the visit, but the larger ones, like Ricjard Lenoir or La Motte Picquet are much more entertaining.
Need help deciding on location for one month rental (9 Replies)
hi, we are planning a one month apartment rental in Paris we've found a couple of options in the 3rd arrondissement, near the Marche des Enfants Rouges. Someone told me that area is a bit like SoHo in NYC but I don't know NY at all so that doesn't help much. Does that mean sort of bohemian? We have children and want to be somewhere safe, quiet and with reasonable access to the main 'sights'. Does this area sound like that at all? Any ideas on alternatives would be very welcome. Thank you.

Firstly, everywhere in central Paris is safe, so this is not something to be concerned about. Secondly, nowhere in central Paris is near to all the main sights. They are spread over Paris, so you will always need to use the Metro to visit some of them. And anywhere you stay in central Paris will be within 200 yards of a Metro station, so again this is not something to be concerned about. The area is just north of the Marais. It's a pleasant area, with plenty of restaurants. It should be...More
Paris 3rd arrondissement advice please? (5 Replies)
Hello, we are planning a one month stay in Paris and have found a couple of possible apartment rentals in the 3rd Arrondissement, both a block or two from the Marche des Enfants Rouges. From the photos, the area looks mixed - some modern (outdated modern maybe?) buildings next to more traditional ones. Google says about 30 minutes on foot to the Louvre. We don't know this area well at all and would love to get some input from a Paris expert. Is the area safe to walk around at night (we have...More

Hi - I travel to Paris often and without my husband - and I've found only one place that tourists visit that's unsafe - the Bois de Boulogne, only after dark. During daylight hours it's a terrific place but after dark, bad people come out to do bad things, so avoid it then. I've stayed in at least 8 different arrondissements and been safe in every one of them at any hour whether on a bus, the Metro, the RER, or on foot. I think the Marais will be an interesting and affordable area in...More
