"Food Markets" Dining & Drinking Tip by TexasDave

Dining & Drinking, Paris: 93 reviews and 101 photos

There are dozens of areas in the city dedicated to purchasing fresh food. Locals still practice the custom of buying in small quantities daily. There will be stalls selling fruits, vegetables, meat, and seafood; plus bakeries and places preparing ready-to-eat dishes (sort of like take-out).

One that was close to our hotel was Rue Poncelet, of which I took the pictures below.
Other more famous markets are: Rue Cler, Rue Mouffetard, Rue Montorgueil, Marche St. Germain, and Marche Raspail.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
