Make your way along rows of stalls that offer farm-fresh produce, homemade goodies, and much more. Visit Marché d’Aligre to experience a typical Parisian food market. You’ll find cheese, seafood, butchers’, and fresh produce stalls – and it’s open on Sundays.
Looking for the best organic produce? Head to Marche Biologique des Batignolles or to Marché Raspail and prepare to be awed. Soak up some history along with your shopping at the city’s oldest market, Marche des Enfants Rouges, or delight yourself with the beauty of fresh flowers at Queen Elizabeth II Flower Market.
If you enjoy getting creative, you’ll think you wandered into heaven on earth at Marche de Saint-Pierre. Hoping to visit a flea market that has something for everyone? Head straight for Marche aux puces de Saint-Ouen.
Enjoy a taste of West Africa at the Marché Dejean in the 18th arrondissement’s Goutte d’Or neighbourhood. If you’re looking for cassava, tilapia, and some of the most exotic vibes in Paris, it’s where you’ll find them. Brocante des Abbesses is a market you won’t want to miss if you’re into art, jewellery, knick-knacks, and vintage postcards.
