déc 16 in to do events paris Written by: Thierry
If you have some spare time and want to stroll like a real parisian, you should definitely visit one of our Market.
One of the city’s best markets, the Marché d’Aligre—located behind the Bastille between the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine and the Rue de Charenton—stands out compared to Paris’s other outdoor markets because its lively, personable vibe makes it feel like a village within a village. At its heart is the Marché Beauvau, one of the last remaining covered markets. Manageably sized, it contains everything from fresh poultry, cheese, and North African harissa among the permanent stalls to flea-market finds like vintage hats and shoes. The shops and eateries that spice up the surrounding streets make this a favorite among foodies.

The Levis market and its neighbouring streets offer a large diversity of the day to day gastronomy actors. If you like pastries and sweets, there are no less than six bakeries and pastry makers, not to be confused with the many chocolate makers and candy shops!
Closed on Monday / Location: Rue de Levis
Enfants Rouge Market
Le Marche des Enfants Rouges is the oldest food market in Paris, built in 1615 under the rule of King Louis XIII. The name literally means “ Market of the Red Children” and in my research all I found was the name comes from a nearby 17th century orphanage where the children wore red uniforms. What that has to do with the price of cabbage, I don’t know, but the name has a mysterious, romantic air to it.
Set up on this small city square you can find high quality products from fruit, vegetables, cheese, breads and homemade cakes. You can also look for a few clothing, jewlery and scarf stalls.
Closed on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday / Location: Place Monge
Very classy street market with bakeries Paul and Fournil de Pierre. Many cheese shops including Alleosse and a German deli, Le Stubli.
Closed on Monday / Location: rue Poncelet
The Raspail market is the Sunday Marché Biologique in St. Germain. Upscale, large, very well attended (a place to see and to be seen bien sur), draws shoppers from around the city.
Closed on Monday / Location: Boulevard Raspail
