Paris Markets

If you have some spare time and want to stroll like a real parisian, you should definitely visit one of our Market.


Aligre 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.

Closed on Monday /Location: Place Aligre

Levis Market

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

Belleville Market

There are over 200 stalls that sell everything at good prices.  From fruits and vegetables to clothing and bedding.  There is a fun ethnic mix to this roving market.
Closed on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday  / Location: Boulevard de Belleville

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.

Located in the chic northern part of the Marais, Le Marche des Enfants Rouges is a compact indoor market with a small iron-gate entrance that’s easy to miss if you aren’t looking for it. I arrived in the late afternoon and was starving for lunch. The nice thing about the market is that many of the stands sell fresh prepared food that you can eat on tables with cheerful plastic tablecloths spread out through the market. The heavenly aroma from an Asian food stand seduced me and I chowed down on a delicious dish of Asian–style chicken nuggets with seaweed salad.
Closed on Monday and Sunday / Location: 39 rue de Bretagne

Monge Market

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

Poncelet Market

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

Raspail Market

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
