Once a 16th-century orphanage, Paris’s oldest covered market is a must visit when strolling around the trendy Haut Marais. Named for the children who were dressed in red, Le Marché des Enfants Rouges is the perfect stop for a quintessentially Parisian experience.

This outdoor market and eatery offers many worldly lunch options, including Italian, Moroccan, Lebanese, African, and Japanese cuisine. Although there are plenty of international tastes to choose from, don’t overlook the French wine bar and famous crêpe stand. It’s well worth the queue!

In case you’d rather cook your own meal at home, there’s a fishmonger on site as well as a produce stand with fruit and vegetables ripe for the picking. The market’s also filled with an assortment of take-away delicacies from around the world. Get a few and head to the nearby Square du Temple to enjoy a quick snack on a park bench.

Oh, and this superb Parisian market has more than just food! Don’t leave without grabbing a gorgeous bouquet of fresh flowers on your way out!

Let a local guide you through a Parisian market and teach you to make a 5-course French meal! Reserve our Market to Table Experience.
