Marche rue de Buci, Paris

3.9
#64 of 308 in Shopping in Paris
If you’d like to shop and still experience an authentic Paris scene, head over to Marche rue de Buci, a traditional market street in the chic St-Germain-des-Prés district. This site makes a relaxing area to stroll and simply take in the scene. Seasonal fruits and vegetables cover tabletops, and chickens spin on the rotisserie. One stall is entirely devoted to big bouquets of fresh flowers.

When you go, keep in mind that stands tend to close for lunch, so find one of the nearby restaurants or cafés for a delicious meal of your own. Sundays and Monday mornings tend to be the least crowded time to visit.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
