Smaller than anticipated; disappointing. Some nice food displays and potentially good eats but I left without partaking. Got some nice pictures though. Good to pass an hour or to have lunch if you see something that grabs you. Beware. Not all prepared food vendors are assigned table space. You may have to stand and eat. There are better outdoor food... More

We went towards the end of the day, so some of the vendors were closed, but this was a really fun visit. A number of food/restaurants vendors to pick from to get food, and also local "farmers market" type of vendors offering fresh fruits and vegetables, which we bought to take home and cook dinner. Fun atmosphere!

what a surprise- a hidden food market, with best street food. couldnt make up my mind what to eat- Japaneese, Crep, a soup, or just a crunchy bagget with everything you can think of. Eventually choose to eat in the Veggy resturant. great food, wonderful servce.

Food was ok but extremely overpriced for the quantity you get. Both my company and I left feeling hungry after paying 26 euros for two plates. I will not be returning there.

This tiny original market is worth seeking out for the historical aspect. It offers a few fresh-market vendors and several restaurant/takeaway kiosks. Outside are several flea-market vendors. Get a book or go online and read the history before you go, so you can appreciate how things used to be.

I stumbled upon this little farmers market and I will make it a place I stop by whenever possible in the future. It is a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the streets as you take a break from shopping.

Is a nice market! It is a typical local market. What I can comment is it is clean, tidy and nice. Don't go too early, they only start at 9.30am. There is a subway station located nearby!

A real disappointment. The place is very small. You have long line at each retailer. And to be honest, none of them opened my appetite. I would not go back and would not eat there. There are way better markets in Paris

Staying in Le Marais

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
