The 12 best farmer’s markets in Paris

August 09, 2019
Paris is a foodies paradise and doing your grocery shopping in the French capital can be a thing of wonder. If you’ve recently relocated to Paris and are hoping to get your hands on the freshest produce and most delicious delicacies, then look no further. Bypass the supermarkets and seek out one of these farmer’s markets that sell everything from specialty cheese to fruit and veg.

Marché d’aligre

Opening times: Tuesday to Sunday, 7:30 am – 1:30 pm and 4:30pm – 7:30 pm

 

Open 6 days a week in the mornings and evenings is this charming market that not many tourists know about. This is the sort of place real Parisians do their food shop and the stall sell everything you might need for a weekly shop. The markets divided into two sections, the covered part and the uncovered part. The stalls are surrounded by a mix of permanent shops including the city’s first vegetarian butcher. The Opera district where this market is, is one of the best places to live in Paris as an expat

Marché Bastille

Opening times: Thursdays and Sundays, 8:00 am – 2:00 pm

 

With over one hundred stalls selling a huge range of products, this is one of the largest markets in central Paris. Fresh French produce is the order of the day here with stalls selling bread, fresh fruits and vegetables, seafood, meats, and international groceries sold directly from the farmers. If all that shopping makes you hungry, there are a number of takeaway food stalls serving a variety of cuisines fresh from all over the world. The market is in the heart of the city and right near some of the best long term rentals in Paris if you are considering relocating.

Le Marché Biologique des Batignolles

Opening times: Saturday, 9am – 3pm

 

This is the largest completely organic market in Paris and while it doesn’t have the same buzz as some of the more touristy markets, it’s a local treasure and a great place to do your grocery shopping. Fresh fruit and veg are the main attraction here so it’s popular with healthy eaters and vegetarians. Because it’s less busy than the other markets you’ll get the chance to chat with producers and farmers and find out where your food incoming from. Tucked away in the 17th arrondissement, there’s a nice wholesome vibe here which makes it one of the best places to live in Paris as an expat family

Marché Bourse

Opening times: Tuesday and Friday, 12.30pm – 8.30pm

 

If you’ve spent the morning exploring the beautiful covered passages of Paris, then you might need to stop for something to eat and Marché Bourse is the perfect spot, close to many of the shopping arcades. With lots of cooked food stalls catering to all tastes, there’s plenty to choose from. Try a Moroccan dish or one of the spicy creations.

Marché Dejean

Opening times: Tuesday to Sunday, 9am – 9pm

 

If you want to get a feel for local life in Paris among the West African community, then there’s no better place to visit than Marché Dejean. In the 18th arrondissement, it’s the place to go for tilapia and manioc and other African specialties. Food stalls, halal butchers, cosmetics parlours and cafés are all crowded into the pedestrianised street, making it feel a world away from other districts. There’s also a lot of fish and seafood on sale here so if you’re struggling to find it, follow your nose.

Marché des Enfants Rouges

Opening times: Tuesday – Sunday, 8:00 am – 8:30 pm

 

Marché des Enfants Rouges lays claim as the oldest market in Paris, so it’s worth a visit for the historical significance alone. But the food on sale here is also some of the best. It can get very busy with tourists on Saturdays and Sundays so if you can, pick up your groceries here in the week. From Lebanese and Italian to Japanese and of course, French, this is also the perfect place to stop by for a bite to eat. In the 3rd arrondissement, this is close to some of the most glamorous areas in Paris

Marchée Couvert Saint-Germain

Opening times: Tuesday – Saturday, 8am – 8pm; Sunday, 8am – 1.30pm

 

Open 6 days a week, this is a popular place for Parisians topics up their groceries during the working week. The historic covered market is crammed full of every French food you can imagine as well as lots of international offerings. If you’re a solo female moving to Paris and want to find a one-stop shop for all your groceries, and buy them in portions that are suitable for one, then this is the place to go.

Rue Montorgueil

Opening times: Monday – Sunday, 9am – 5pm

 

Rue Montorgueil and the surrounding streets of the Marais district are bustling with life, night and day but it’s on this little pedestrianised street that the market happens. Paved with tiles in white marble; it’s lined with cafés and bars, bakers, produce and fish sellers, restaurants, and independently owned boutiques and is a quintessential Paris experience. While the market is open every day, the surrounding cafes and patisseries are also worth checking out and the street is even home to one of the best bakeries in Paris.

Marché International de Rungis

Opening times: varies depending on trader, usually Tuesday – Friday, 3am – 11am

 

The largest fresh produce market in the world is just on the outskirts of Paris and is well worth a visit for gastronomes and gourmands. It opens at the crack of dawn or earlier (depending on the vendor) but you’ll have to organise a guided tour if you want to do your shopping here, as it’s strictly speaking only for wholesalers. At over 2,000 years old, it’s also one of the oldest continuously run markets in the world and is split into five individual sections: dairy and gourmet products, meat products, seafood, freshwater products, fruits and vegetables, and horticulture and decoration.

Marché Monge

Opening times: Wednesday, Friday, Sunday, 7am – 2.30pm

 

The leafy surroundings of Place Monge are a delightful setting for this small food market. The prices can be slightly higher than some the other places on this list, so we wouldn’t recommend doing your weekly food shop here. But frolicking up specialty items and quality goods, it can’t be beat. The vendors are on hand chat and it’s worth paying a little extra sometimes to know exactly where your food is coming from.

Marché Président-Wilson

Opening times: Wednesday and Saturday, 7am – 2.30pm

 

If the idea of tongues, tripe and other innards don’t turn your stomach then you’ll love this market selling all sorts of French gastronomic delights. There’s a veg stall with so many varieties that you won’t even recognise some of them and a large range of hot food too, making it a good place to stop for lunch.

Marché Mouffetard

Opening times: Tuesday – Sunday, 8am – 1pm

 

This traditional market is typically Parisian and full of locals buying their weekly groceries. Specialising in fruit, veg, charcuterie, patés, seafood and cheeses, most of which are organic. On Wednesday, Friday and Sunday mornings, Mouffetard’s stalls run into the Marché Monge, so you can visit two of the best farmer’s markets in Paris in one go.
