This street precinct is one of the best places in Paris to experience life as a Parisian. With markets, brasseries, boucheries, patisseries, etc you will be left with an fantastic experience of life in a global city like Paris. A must visit for at least a wander through the pedestrian precinct.

Forget all you ever read or heard about rue Cler!

Rue Montorgueil is a true, working market street, used by locals more than tourists. As such, you will find a much more authentic selection of seafood, butchers, cheese shops, boulangeries and patisseries, fruit and vegetable stands than you do in the rather "sanitized, tourist-friendly" rue Cler.

Part of this street is pedestrian-friendly, and part of it is narrow streets and sidewalks, but this only adds to its charm. There are several casual cafes along the street, but frankly, nothing to go out of your way for. The main attraction here is buying fresh food that you can prepare and eat at home. Perfect, if you are lucky enough to have rented an apt or want the fixings for a terrific picnic.

Be aware that part of the market street tradition means that many of the stalls will close during mid-day - the vendors have to eat too! Some are closed Sun and/or Mon, as well. But they re-open in the late afternoon and usually stay open until around 7PM or so.

This is a street that smells and feels like a Parisian market should - as opposed to the "Disney" version on rue Cler. You should visit it, if at all possible. You'll be glad you did.

Oh my goodness, where do I begin? When I think of my recent visit to Paris, the most memorable part is how every morning I visited this market street for fresh baguettes, pastries, cheese, and wine. I tried every patissierie on the street and every single one was amazing. People are so friendly and everything is delicious! This is what made me feel like I had the real Paris experience. Eating out every night in Paris can do some serious damage to your wallet, so rent a private apartment near here (I used Airbnb), spend some lovely mornings perusing this charming street and make yourself a BOMB dinner with those FRESH ingredients.

A pedestrianised market street near Les Halles offer many stalls selling cheese, vegetables, food of all sorts. The street is lined with food shops selling fish, cheese, bread, wine and almost every kind of fresh food, fruit and vegetables you can want.
There is also a selection of cafes and snack bars. Ideal place to shop daily if you are renting an apartment nearby.
Great litlle Greek deli that is worth a visit.
