  • Kids Red? because of the color of the cape they wore out of their hospice to the nineteenth century. The hospice has disappeared, the space downstairs was transformed into a real market french. We wanted to make a parking lot. Uproar in the surrounding areas. The market is now protected, the Enfants Rouges were able to cross the centuries since the XIX ° until the XXI, for the moment. This is final. (If it's time, take the time to have lunch, it's simply great.)

  • 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...  more »
  • They took us to the Red market in the heart of the marais, the place is very nice, we ate at the restaurant was very good and not expensive! I think that this place must be popular because it was really crowded but overall good discovery

  • One of my favourite places to go when I'm in Paris. It's a must. It's beautiful and with a great variety of food and products.
  • I recommend the Lebanese restaurant. Authentic food, low prices, charming welcome. Everything's fresh and prepared in front of you.
  • Hungry and broke? Or hungry and rich, it doesn't matter; the crepes at Chez Alain Miam Miam satisfy everyone! Delicious and enough to feed two full size Americans, you can't go wrong with a savory crepe/sandwich. Besides saving money on a meal, you also get a nice show, watching Chef Alain carefully pour out the perfect amount of batter, before slicing some amazing ham and cheese to put on top. The line can be long, but it's definitely worth the wait. I'd give it five stars if: -there was better seating (there's no place to sit unless you sneak onto another restaurant's table or unless you head to the other side for communal tables) -Chef Alain handled money with the same hand he handled food with... ...but like the song says, "First I was afraid, I was petrified...but, I will survive...hey hey."
  • Best covered market / food court
  • Nice small market, lots of foods for lunch.
