It is maybe not worthy if it is your first time in Paris and you don't have much time. Otherwise is nice to visit at lunch time. Good atmosphere

Great place to wander around and grab a bite to eat but be warned, the market is small and it gets extremely busy. Very good Moroccan food and the restaurant in the back - L'estaminet is very good.

We were lucky enough that this lovely little market was next door to our apartment. It is a nice place with lovely food. They have number of stools where you can get some amazing selection of cheese, meat and other products. Food was really nice as well. The place feel very authentic and makes you feel like you a part... More

An interesting and lively market but AVOID the LEBANESE! The service is so bad, you do not feel welcomed when you order and the order system is very complicated. You pay 10€ for a sandwhich and a "cocktail de fruit" which is basically a very small smoothie. The worst was when we got a spot to sit (guided by the... More

Not only a food market but a place to experience all type of food served (burger, marocain, Asian) at the end of the market, as well as a bar with DJ (at least this Saturday). Great atmosphere and wonderful place to enjoy some great fresh street food and more. Be aware not to miss the entrance of the market.

Went here on a Thursday early-mid afternoon, and only 4-6 stalls were open (it says open 10am-8pm on google). It looked dirty and raggedy and I had walked a long way from a previous location with high hopes based on reviews of this place. Sadly it was very disappointing. Either I went at the wrong time of day or day... More

While walking in the Marais, in Paris, shortly after visiting the Picasso museum, we went to the Marché des Enfants Rouge, the oldest covered market in Paris. We passed through the various food stalls and went to l"Estaminet, a small and very good little restaurant at the back of the market. The menu was limited, as was the space inside,... More

I have lived more than 10years in Paris and 2 weeks ago I discover this place for a lunch with friends! I love Parisian markets but this is different because this is "indoor". By indoor do not thing this is close, you are just covered from the rain if it happens. The other different is the restaurants you have in... More

This is a very small market, but one can find lots of good food here, including lots of prepared food. They have some picnic tables set up so you can assemble a lunch as eat it here. Or take it to the Temple square nearby. This market is historic and has been here for centuries. In the middle of the... More

There's a reason this place is filled with hustle and bustle-it's good. While a little intimidating at first, we jumped in to Italian the first time, then the sandwich guy and the next visit the crepe guy is on our list (lines were to long). These people are cooking with passion and it showed in their food. Bought fresh fruit... More

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.
