Food markets in Paris


One of the nicest things in Paris are its food markets ! Usually it starts early, like 7 a.m or 8 am (before going to school) and ends up by 1 p.m. The good thing is either to go early and escape the crowd + pick up the best items or at the end, when it's getting calmer and sales people offer big discounts for last products.

Here is a list of food markets I would recommand :

1/ Great price and great value for fruits and vegetables, with a nice 'bistrot' surrounding, second-hand trade and delicacies from Maghreb : 

Le Marché d'Aligre
Tuesday to Friday morning + Sunday morning

2/ Great great price and funny "souk" atmosphere, nice mint smells and place for bargain : 
Le Marché de Ménilmontant
Tuesday and Friday morning

3/ Beautiful products, more space to breathe, more quiet and clean : 

Le Marché Popincourt
Tuesday and Friday morning

4/ Cute, vegan, quite quiet and peaceful, oldest market in Paris based where you can have lunch : 

Le Marché des Enfants Rouges
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday : from 8h30 to 13h and 16h to 19h30 
Friday and Saturday : from 8h30 to 13h and 16h à 20h 
Sunday : from 8h30 to 14h

5/ Refined selection, beautiful and quiet, green and delicate :

Le Marché Anvers
Friday : from 15h to 20h30
