Published on 20 September 2018, dans Flavors and Gastronomy
Vibrant and friendly, the markets of Paris are one of the joys of being Parisian. They embody the spirit of the city. Browse their colourful stalls, buy some fresh produce, have a coffee on the terrace and get a feel for the atmosphere of the district. Also delightfully authentic, the Hotel Passy Eiffel offers a brief guide to the best markets of Paris. Unmissable!
Marché d'Aligre; the most popular
Situated in the heart of the 12th arrondissement, a few steps from the Place de la Bastille, the Aligre market is well known to Parisians. Open 6 days out of 7, it’s divided into two sections; a covered market and an outdoor area. Here you can find early vegetables, meat, cheese and charcuterie, as well as clothing and flowers. Take some time out to relax and sip a cup of the Aligre café’s famed mint tea; it's a real institution in the quarter.
Marché des Batignolles; the most organic
Chic and upscale, the family-friendly Batignolles in the 17th arrondissement is the market of choice for Parisians who prefer to eat organic. Here, the early vegetables, meat and cheese are sourced from environmentally responsible producers.
Marché des Enfants Rouges; the most historic
Very central, situated in the trendy and chic 3rd arrondissement, the Enfants Rouges market dates from the 17th century. The oldest market in Paris, it’s now a magnet for foodies, having various appealing and exotic delis, snack bars and takeaways. Whether you prefer Lebanese, Italian, Japanese or Corsican food, here you’re guaranteed to find something that will delight your taste buds.
Marché de Passy and Rue de l'Annonciation, close to the hotel
Open every day except Monday, the Passy market is dotted with small stalls of all kinds to discover. You can find everything you’re looking for, and great quality is to be expected! We also recommend a stroll at Rue de l'Annonciation. This pedestrian street offers many shops and several lovely restaurants.
