A tailored itinerary through the best markets in Paris
Going to the market is a favourite activity amongst Parisians. They come to stock up on fresh products. Then, they sit down at a sidewalk café for an espresso or a drink. So, I would like to suggest an immersion and a tailored itinerary for you to explore two extraordinary markets: First, the Enfants Rouges covered market at 39 rue de Bretagne (3rd arrondissement, Metro Line 3 Arts et Métiers stop). Designed in the 17th century, it is the oldest market in Paris and is open daily, except Saturdays and Sunday afternoons. The ideal place to have a bite from one of the market’s many deli stands. Next, the flower and bird market on Place Louis Lépine (4th arrondissement, Metro Line 4 Cité stop). Open daily except Mondays, the flower market has been in operation since 1808. It now comprises six metal halls designed by Gustave Eiffel. Due to a need for renovation, this market could well be shut down. So now, it’s high time to take advantage of this little wonder!
