“Nice Small Market On The Weekend”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

Place Monge is a good location just to hang around with good shops and restaurant. On the weekend they also have a small market.

“Great Experience”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

We came to the Sunday market at Place Monge and it was a treat. I really enjoyed interacting with the locals and buying goods for a fraction of what boutiques and specialty stores sell it for. This is a great place to go if you are in Paris on a budget because you can put together a great meal with a small amount of money. I enjoyed sampling the cheeses and various foods as well. There were a number of products; olive oil, clothing, produce, meats/seafood, ready to eat food ( African and Mediterranean is what I ate, but there were others). The prices were fair and the quality was not lacking. Even if you don't buy anything, just go for the experience. We arrived around 0900 on Sunday ( stayed for about 45 minutes) and there was no crowd at all.

“Amazing Macaroons”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Place Monge is cosy square with a farmers market. The highlight of our visit to Place Monge was a chocolatier (can't remember the name) located on the adjacent street. The owner was the chef and he was a typical french pattisier and the macaroons were to die for. Not to be missed.

“Real market on weekends!”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

I love the weekend market on Place Monge. It is quite small and simple, but you can definitely find great products. Try to get some self-raised bread, or other with fig and raisins, buy yourself as many cheeses you want, and go eat them on one of the many cafés around the Square. Order some wine, of course. It really can't get any better.

“Great place to hang out”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

This is a lovely area with some great bars and restaurants. it doesn't feel quite so touristy and there are some great happy hour deals, even on a Saturday. Good value for money and great ambiance.
