The most charming markets in Paris
Authentic, friendly, pleasant and full of locally-sourced and delicious produce, the markets of Paris each have their own unique personality. The weekend stroll to the market is a great tradition. Try it so you can experience Parisian life while discovering new delicacies. The Hotel d'Angleterre recommends 3 essential Parisian markets you’ll want to get to know during your stay in the capital.
Marché d'Aligre; a few steps from the Bastille
An institution in the heart of Paris, the Aligre is undoubtedly one of the capital’s most popular markets. Open 6 days out of 7, it is located on the Place d'Aligre, a charming square lined with shops and small cafes. The market is divided into covered and outdoor sections and you will find a huge selection of fruits and vegetables, cheeses and meats, as well as clothes and hardware. In short, you will inevitably find what you’re looking for ... and even what you’re not looking for!
Marché des Batignolles; organic and unusual
Chic and organic, the Batignolles market is found in the upscale 17th arrondissement. Here you can buy fruit and vegetables straight from the farm or producer, and it’s also a great place for checking out food stalls selling delicious exotic treats. You’ll have a choice of Lebanese, Italian, Moroccan and African cuisine.
Marché des Enfants Rouges; historic charm
This attractive market may be perfectly in tune with the times, but its origins date back to 1615! Here in the 3rd arrondissement you’ll find fresh artisanal foodstuffs, of course, but also fine sushi and an Italian delicatessen.
For your Parisian break, remember to book your room at the Hotel d'Angleterre, in the 6th arrondissement, on the Left Bank. This typically Parisian establishment, in the Saint Germain des Prés district, will charm you with its inviting and elegant setting.
