Wonderful market with all the seafood, meat, cheese, delicacies you could want.

Three lanes of food, souvenirs, clothes, music, and much more. We went around noon on a Sunday and the place was packed and lively. Vendors tolerated my terrible French with a... read more

I loved visiting this market twice on my recent stay at the Citadines opposite. We bought the triple creme cheese and some home made fois gras and had a picnic with one of baguettes. Delicious. I bought my daughter a couple of smocked dresses there. Not a lot of things to buy except food. The berries were very good. We... More

Three lanes of food, souvenirs, clothes, music, and much more. We went around noon on a Sunday and the place was packed and lively. Vendors tolerated my terrible French with a smile. I got cheese, wine, bread, and sausages.

I'm from Oregon, so rain doesn't stop me, but the stalls do shed a lot of rain that will hit those walking between them, so if it's raining, be prepared for a soaking. In return you'll be rewarded with fresh cheese and veggies and some cheap souvenirs from China and local honey and soaps and interesting things that make it... More

We stumbled upon this market while strolling near our Air BnB apartment. It's huge! And colourful, full of locals, reasonable prices for Paris. Even if you don't buy fruit, veg, meat, cheese, flowers, souvenirs or clothes, it's fun just to people watch. There's also food stands, so we grabbed a middle eastern sandwich, sat on a bench and watched the... More

The best of LOCAL Paris. This market is a great option for travelers seeking to experience local life as it goes in Paris on a daily basis.

Again, we have lived in Paris years ago and visited at least annually for many years and this is the first time we have been to this market. We usually have stayed closer to St. German, the islands, or the 7th and have gone to the Marche Maubert in the 5th or the Rue cler market in the 7th. This... More

We simply adore this market. There's pretty much everything (except couture clothing) here from food to wearables and housewares. One never knows what you might leave here with- this trip was belts, a padlock(which was turned into a necklace pendant) and wooden balls to soak up essential oil and use as potpourri- what a diverse collection. One real treat was... More

Wanted some snacks to take back to our hotel so elided to hit the food market. The cheeses on offer were mid blowing. Lots of venders are happy to let you try before you buy which is a nice touch. We sent far too much and couldn't eat it all as usual but what an experience. Loved it

The market was BR our B&b, so walking over was easy... But it's also by 2 metro stops. We did some shopping for cheese & bread & meats to stick our fridge. Such great choices! Then, a little lunch. What to choose? Moroccan, Breton crepes & cider, chicken & salads? We all had what we wanted & finished off with... More

If you only get to one open-air market in Paris, make it this one - it is on Thursdays and Sundays and is a pandemonium of colour, tastes and smells! - one of my favourite days on holiday in Paris! It is a big market and the stalls stock everything from Roquefort cheese to chorizo sausage to cymbidium orchids -... More

Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made for entertainment.

Students and young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait for coveted tickets during the day. Towards Republique, skateboarders practice their tricks while others chill out at the square. If you’re looking for late-night revelry, this is your neighborhood.
