  • A market of small restaurants around the world or we fear quietly taste of the dishes served at the table or at the counter, as the tapas, the Caribbean dishes or Italians, a couscous... friendly atmosphere and decent prices. A visit without hesitation.

  • We walked through there and it had a lot of nice fresh produce and restaurants... It reminded me of a mix between a farmers market and reading terminal market in Philadelphia. Very pleasant experience!
  • Had a wonderful meal there, all organic. There is so much variety of food that everyone should be able to find something they like.
  • Eat While You Shop... With more than 80 public markets scattered throughout the metropolis, no neighborhood is without access to a marché. One where you can truly take advantage of shopping while you eat (or eating while you shop) is the Marché des Enfants Rouge in the 3rd arrondissement. The oldest remaining covered market in the heart of this trendy foodie neighborhood was built in 1615. The Marché des Enfants Rouge boasts stands of prepared food from Morocco, Japan, Lebanon, Italy, and, it goes without saying, France. Bitesee tip: Track down the Moroccan Chicken Pastilla.
  • Excellent market with a huge selection of stalls. Getting lunch here is a must and worth the wait in line.
  • Very interesting place! They had everything from all over the world. I walked through the market because it happened to be pouring that day and i stopped in for shelter. Very nice find! It's a great way to try different foods from many different countries.
