Stroll at a French market like a local and feel Parisian for a day!
While there are widely popular markets like the Marché Maubert near Cathedral Notre-Dame de Paris in the Latin Quarter or like the Marché d’Aligre near Bastille, each market has its own personality. There are also ethnic or specialty markets like the flower market on Cité Island and the Paris Flea market.
Palatable, tasty cheeses “fromage,” baguette breads, and juicy, colorful fruits and vegetables are at the rendez-vous in every Parisian market, where locals go grocery shopping. It is also an invitation to discover other French region’s specialties called “terroirs.”
