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

Stumbled upon this market and in my excitement , bought heaps of fruit and vege which is great but I was far from my apartment. By the time I got home, all the fruit had rubbed against each other and were mushy. But if you live close, go and have a look, it goes for ages, which some clothes and... More

A short Metro ride to this station and you are in the middle of a local market. Had some great eats, picked up a few souvenirs (they are much less expensive here than near the 'sights') and you are right on the edge of the Marais, another great section of Paris to get lost in.

I visited this market on Thursday, the regular market day, and on Saturday when it's a handcrafted market. Selection is bigger on Thursdays and includes produce, meat/fish, premade food, and household goods/clothing. I didn't buy any food, but it looked amazing and had good prices posted when compared to my neighborhood bodega style shops. There were souvenir items, clothing, jewelry,... More
