Today we present the best markets of the city of Paris, mostly known for its elegance, fashion and boulevards. Our proposal instead, wants to bring you closer to the Paris of everyday life and will allow you to experience real Parisian delights.
Saint-Ouen, also known as Clignacourt, is one of the largest antiquity markets in the world, with approximately 7000 square meters of extension. It is also one of the most visited in the city.

Marche des Enfants Rouges, instead, is the oldest "covered" market in the city of Paris. The Infante Rouges owes the curious name (of the red children) to the red-colored uniforms worn by the children of the orphanage that was near the market until the sixteenth century. In this market you will be able to find gastronomic delights from different places in the world, but we advise you to try the desks dedicated to Africa or Lebanon.

The Organic market of Raspail sells fresh and organic fruit and vegetables, but not only, but also meat, fish, honey and some cheese are present.
