A vast array of stalls in all shapes, sizes and colours make for an unforgettable experience! Best visited in the morning.
This is one of the most popular open air markets in Paris, ideal for picking up a cheap yet tasty snack. Known locally as La Mouffe, it takes place on the cobbled and partially pedestrianized Rue Mouffetard, where there is also a handful of interesting restaurants and boutique. You’ll find stalls brimming with breads, meat, fish, vegetables, oils, chocolates and other fresh produce and dressings alongside others serving chicken and roast potatoes, fresh oysters, cakes and all kinds of other treats... And it goes without saying that the cheeses and wines are superb. Open Tuesday to Sunday, it extends between the Place de la Contrescarpe, behind the Panthéon, and the Place de St. Médard. If you’re planning to visit this market, remember that some stalls are closed in the afternoon. Go in the morning and you’ll find the market in full swing.
