The Rue Mouffetard Beautiful Market

Enjoyed the open market! Got there around 9am in a Thursday, when it was opening. It was small but had beautiful displays and a nice atmosphere.

It's worth visiting and has a special charm that is very parisienne yet laid back. Many crepe shops and cafes. It's not high end so expect good food around the area but nothing fancy.

Up to the 1980s, this was still a traditional Parisian neighbourhood and market with lots of character. It still has lots of interesting independent shops. It has become a bit gentrified and the fine bars and cafes are now pricey and smart. In summer, the terraces are pretty full and great people watching spots. The market still takes place daily...

We enjoyed spending an hour leisurely browing through the market. It is in a beautiful historic part of the city

This market is great with tons of delicious food. Be sure to bring cash, as nobody likes to take cards.

If the weather is nice this is one of my favourite places in the city to pick up some of best food Paris has to offer. The street runs downhill from Place de la Contrescarpe to the roundabout beside the Saint Medard church. The street is lined with specialty food shops all offering top-quality products. You can do all of... More

There was everything from different kinds of food, new and used goods, meat, seafood, bakeries, furniture, art, collectibles and on and on. We meandered through the streets taking in the the ambience of the place and people watching. What a great... More

Paris has some great street markets for food, and this is one of them. It's only open in the mornings, most days except Monday I believe. It's only about 3 short blocks long, but packed with gourmet cheeses and pates purveyors, boulangeries, and other food merchants. The smells are wonderful and you'll be greatly tempted to buy more than you... More

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighbourhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighbourhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
