(That's yum-yum in French, and his creations are way beyond yummy.) This is a crowded group of food stalls down an alleyway off Rue de Bretagne. It was confusing for us first-timers who spoke no French, but interestingly so. There is an excellent-seeming Moroccan place, an organic French place, a decent-looking Italian place, a Japanese stall where the grilled sardines were delicious, and many other places. They all pale in comparison to the creations of Alain. People stand in line for 45 minutes or more for one of his grilled sandwiches, crepes, or galettes, and for good reason. I am gluten-sensitive, so when I learned he would make a buckwheat galette, I was thrilled. We asked for his recommendation, and he whipped up a huge buckwheat crepe which he then filled with a very savory fresh salad of lettuce, basil, tomatoes, and other tasty stuff, lots of parmesan shavings, and slices of prosciutto. Forget about your football-sized burritos or your favorite California wrap, this is a food experience on a different order. The balance of flavors, the warm crispness of the buckwheat wrapper, the abundance of the ingredients. . . I can't recommend this highly enough. It is the kind of experience that travel is all about for me--encountering something I couldn't have dreamed of exactly if I had stayed home.

We lived in Paris for a month and did enjoy going. What always bums us out at this market is the lack of community the place exudes. For example, you can not take your pasta for your kids two steps away to the Moroccan place or vice versa. The adherence to this rule prohibited us from actually staying there on this last trip to Paris. I took my mother and brother and his family of 4 and we all ended up getting different stuff and eating it in the park next door. It would be so much more fun if they could figure out a way to share the table space instead of being annoyed when they are offering a place where everyone is more or less encouraged to order different foods. Food for thought. Room for impovement here I think

After walking for hours in the Marais, you will appreciate this flea / street market as a food stop destination. You can find in there 4-5 different options (a creperie, a burger shop, a libanese and a japonais restaurant) with reasonable (yet not cheap) prices. Crowded and noisy, the style of atmosphere you expect in a flea market (however with a parisian style...)
