Rue Mouffetard remains one of the best streets for strolling and enjoying the markets, shops and cafes along the way, from one end to the other

You should go there on Sunday around noon, on square Saint-Médard you have the chance to dance or just listen the live music of french chansons. That's a great place to start the Sunday afternoon with... I can highly recomment it!

Rue Mouffetard is a quaint shopping street, full of vendors who pull their wares, out into the street. Saturday is the biggest day and there are many people and music fills the streets. It is a like a village within the large busy city. I highly recommend staying on or around this street as it has everything you could possibly... More

We went looking for all the local markets and visited one near Mouffetard which was good but this is the real gem. Free standing permanent locations and on a Sunday wares are displayed on the streets. The selections were amazing and the prices fairly good for an inner-city market. The cheese shops and prepared food were particularly good and it... More

It's a great shopping street or market, for food. But it's charm lies in the hustle bustle. Its a place where locals shop, so on a morning the bakery shop will have queue for breads. Sunday mornings road plays happen. Weekday evenings there live and fresh Sea food stalls along with lovely cheap wines, real cheap and good. It has... More

Fabulous market... The whole street has a beautiful display of fresh and mouthwatering French deli style food. We went on a Sunday when there was music and dancing in the street as well. We bought a bottle of wine and lots of gorgeous picnic food and went to the lovely space of the Luxembourg gardens to enjoy it... Heaven!!!! We... More

Interesting walk through the market, although more shops and restaurants. Market area was relatively small, but we there on a Friday.

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.
