What a delightful local market place to find at the end of our street. Local shopping area with food if you rent and apartment or need supplies. Not a tourist spot but still some crafty stuff that is good quality for sale
Coffee available and of course manned by colourful characters.
A real gem to have found

It was our first market in Paris. It was a great experience. It is a good size market (not too big) with all needed fresh products.
We bought beef entrecote, salmon pave, vegetables, fruits, duck breasts. It was delicious. Price was OK too for fresh products.
We also had lunch there.

Before this indoor market becomes touristy go now and experience locals selling local produce with fresh fruit, flowers and fish available as well as plenty of the smelly good stuff - cheese!
There’s also a couple of tasty little places to rest your feet and have some of the fresh produced tastily cooked for you. Just a short walk from Gare du Nord/Gare de l’est. enjoy!

I went out of my way to find this market this week and don't understand the great reviews. Most of the stalls were shuttered and the whole place seemed a bit derelict. I walked in one door and straight out the other. It was mid afternoon on a Wednesday and the building was open so I don't get what was going on (or not).

I stumbled across this place just five minutes walk from the Gard du Nord in Paris. It is a market space but many of the vendors offer restaurant quality food. In particular I visited Products Regionaux , there I had an excellent meal cooked and served freshly in front of me as I sat at the bar drinking a little pichet of red wine . I can honestly say it's one of the best meals I've had in France , certainly on this holiday. Friendly staff producing wonderful food. Merci beaucoup!

We stopped in here our last day. Typical wonderful market with fruits, vegetables, meats, chicken, cooked items. Amazing cheeses that I won't find at home. They will vacuum seal items for you. Great last minute shopping.

I discovered this market on my second-to-last day in Paris and picked up tons of delicious snacks to bring back for souvenirs! The friendly cheesemonger helped me choose a vacuum-sealed cheese that wouldn't stink up my luggage, and I got bread, tomatoes, chevre, and fruit to eat on my walk to Montmartre that day. You can eat a hot meal there, or buy a little bit of everything and have a picnic. A great selection, very friendly vendors, and super fun to just walk around and peep at everything.

I didn't find this place on my own. After years of dashing for the metro to make my train because I wanted proper French fare in between trains, I discovered this marche thanks to The Guardian. A place which my two of my Parisian friends, including a born-and-bred Parisian who recently moved to the 10th, weren't familiar with.

The historic cred and architectural features were just a bonus. What mattered to me was finding decent nosh 5 minutes from Gard du Nord. The market was quiet on a Saturday just past noon, what with the storms, floods and yet another strike. Bourdain-style, I beelined towards the busiest stall where bobo hipsters and folks in their 40s to 70s perched on bar stools drinking beer and wine as they waited for their order to be placed on the counter top.

As I climbed onto the nearest bar stool, one of the servers told me the seat was filled and ushered me to what was probably the stall's Siberia, with an (Parisian) apology that it would be 5 to 10 minutes before i was served. When the folk (who seemed like regulars) whose section i almost annexed arrived, my server told them to scoot down to make more room for me. FIve minutes later he checked that I wasn't too squished (I wasn't). A v good start.

A paper mat and cutlery were plonked in front of me a few minutes later, and the same guy popped over to tell me about the menu. Having seen a poster with roast chicken (which one of my neighbours was tucking into), octopus on the grill (which another diner was enjoying) and clams being prepared (not my favorite), I stopped him at option 2 and asked for the chicken. I'm ambivalent about roast chicken but I'd heard all about the superior quality of French chicken that makes any chicken dish infinitely better than its peer in any other country. A minute later his colleague asked what I wanted to drink and was about to plonk two chalkboards with the daily specials in front of me when he told her I'd chosen the chicken.

As I sipped my standard house red, a plate of fish stew with rice was plonked in front of the guy right next to me which made me question my choice. I waited 60 seconds and ensured they've all had two bites of their meals before interrupting to ask if the chicken or stew was better. Both were highly rated, accompanied by the inevitable "it depends what you like" which doesn't work with an omnivore like me. Given I didn't know how to ask if I can change my order in French, I decided to wait for my roast chicken.

It was good. Whilst not the best chicken I've had, it was very tasty, with a nice kick. I think it was half a chicken, accompanied by some potatoes, salade, and a slice of fritata which could have been cooked for a few more minutes. It was a generous enough portion that I left a small slice of breast meat on my otherwise demolished plate.

Both servers checked in on me exactly the way I liked to be asked about my food - not the overzealous and sometimes too repetitive "how's everything", but the casual yet sincere "it's ok?" that my friends and I ask each other when feeding a friend.

I've lost perspective on what's a cheap meal in Paris but for 16.50 Euros I ate very well and got to feel like a local. Post meal I headed to the craft beer store to pick up some local brew to bring up north, then hit a bakery for their raspberry tart and a chocolate mousse for my friend's toddlers.

I wish I bought several cups of mousse given how popular the one cup was with both adults and children. The tart was OK to me, but one of the Parisians said it was a good one. Which means a lot in a city full of artisan bakers and the world's best butter.

So if you have more than 30 minutes to kill between connections, head down to marche saint quentin and grab a bite or a few items to bring to the table.

Great covered market in front of gare du nord. Good quality meat, cheese and vegetables. They also have a beershop and some foodstalls bieden at the back. Bit more expensive than other markets but price/quality wise very good

This market is very conveniently located near Gare l'Est and Gare du Nord. Once can purchase here everything needed for nice meal or even just a picnic. Cheese, wine, meat (cooked or raw), fresh fruits and vegetables; this market has it covered. There are even a couple floral shops. I stopped off at one place and bought a cup of chocolate mousse that was delicious. At a fruit and vegetable seller, I bought a pear that was sweet, juicy, and full of flavor. It's worth a stop if you're in the area.
