This is definitely the place to be on Sunday morning (7 am-3). Go to watch the French housewives with their little net shopping bags troll for their Sunday dinners at the poultry sellers and fishmongers. There's all manner of stalls selling veggies, fruits, pastries, breads,...More

Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made
for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming
bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s
at night this area really comes to life. 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

Markets open around 8 am and close around 2 PM but many sellers start to pack up around. I suggest you get their mid morning the Bastille is very large. Also less crowded Thursday .

I got curious about the word la botte and checked Wiktionary. The expression la botte have various meanings and one of them "a bundle (of flowers)".

Where to shop (1 Replies)
I will be in Paris at the end of November. We plan on doing some shopping on Saturday or Sunday. Which is the better market for clothing, local artist work, etc. Bastille Market or Marché aux Puces St-Ouen de Clignancourt. Or is there another place we should go?

I would love to visit Bastille Market on my first trip to Paris in April. Do some/any of the vendors speak English? I'm trying to learn as much French as I can between now and then but I'm worried that I won't be able to buy anything or ask any questions because of my lack of French. Should I be worried??

As with the shops, restaurants, and so forth, many will know little, some, or a lot of English. You will not have any trouble buying things.
