Perpetually seeking shopping experiences in Paris, I discovered a lively market in a residential, non-touristy area where incredible deals for food, household goods and clothes can be found. Head to the 11th and experience the jam packed souk-like market that starts at Metro: Belleville and follows shouting vendors along Boulevard de Belleville, to Metro: Ménilmontant. Be sure to check out the stalls at the beginning of this market and watch out for people selling knock-offs and stolen goods being chased by the police. (Don’t buy any of this stuff, or you may have to talk yourself out of the same trouble in French!). There are some fantastic stalls selling popular fashion brands including Sinéquanone, Maje, Undiz, Gerard Darel and more, starting at 5 euros! The items are overstock new pieces, and not used. Bring your ‘chariots de course’ – a shopping bag on wheels that all Parisians use to shop with because you will want to fill it with your clothing and food bargains. How about cheeses for 2 euros? Open Tues + Fri, 7 am to 2:30 pm. Some of this market stretches to Père-Lachaise. If you still have energy, buy a map at the newsstand (this is a must!) and explore this most fascinating cemetery in the world: the perpetual home of Chopin, Collette, Heloise + Abelard, Modigliani, Edith Piaf and last but not least, Jim Morrison.

This farmer market was perfect, when I travel i look for what local people do, The market offer from fresh products to clothing selection. If you have the time you can find very good products to make a good dish.

This little market was near our AirBNB. It was great to go grocery shopping for some local cheese, bread and meats. We bought some fresh fruit and were able to pack from lovely picnics during our time in Paris. My recommendation is to pack a reusable grocery bag to make your market shopping easier.

On our most recent visit to Paris we visited this market twice and also the Bastille market. The Bastille market is the showy market with lots of tourists and with prices to match. There are a few things there that you won't see at this market, but not much.

The Belleville market is where locals shop. Go early as it gets very crowded late in the morning/early afternoon. We purchased fish, meat, produce and olives for preparing meals in our rental apartment. The ingredients were exceptional and we were quite jealous of the quality versus what we are able to purchase even in fine markets in the US.

This particular market is Tuesday and Friday 7:00 AM - 2:30 PM. When they say it closes at 2:30, they mean it, by 2:45 most vendors are packed up and long gone. It is fun to watch them pack up as they are incredibly efficient.

This is one of the largest market you can find in Paris... It has nothing excpetionnal but you will see many colour, smell various odors, hear plenty of accents and feel like a real Parisian! Vendors are a bit raw but you will be able to find good quality fruits and vegetables, meat and fish and some fabric and clothes! From you can walk around and enjoy real Paris!

We've been to the marche Belleville several times over the years. Paris markets very much reflect their neighborhoods--that's what markets are about, selling to the locals--and Belleville is among the farthest out arrondisements, loaded with emigres, refugees, as well as the French themselves. If you're in need of a more exotic experience, try Belleville. If not, try the markets in the single digit arrondisements. (Well, the 11th is fine, and I do recommend Bastille and d'Aligre.)

I had been to the famous Père Llachaise cemetery in Belleville and have dined at Mama Shelter,but had yet to visit
the Market. It stretches the Boulevard de Belleville, and houses everything from clothing and shoes, to some of the best veggies, fish, cheese and meats of the area. One of the most rewarding aspects was to be able to slip in with the locals of all nationalities, as well as the multi cultural vendors of all kinds. Always fun to find a bargain and fresh food, but the experience itself is worth the trip. Easy to get to by metro.

Before going to this Belleville market, once on Friday, the second time on
Tuesday, I read all the information about it at TripAdvisor.

The TAdvisor contributors mentioned it's a market for locals, they are totally right !
The fruit and the vegetables are good as in the supermarkets, you may say,
even better and cheaper.

Perhaps, a basic knowledge of French will certainly help ! (And Arabic too).

Loved this market and went twice for great fruit, vegetables, Moroccan specialities and nearby shops featuring great Tunisian pastries. Combine this with a visit to Pere Lachaise cemetery and you've got a half-day all set. In particular we enjoyed stopping into The Rose De Tunis Patisserie Orientale at 69 Boulevard de Belleville for its diverse specialties before returning to the market.
