Most of the vendors set up their stalls in the morning and by mid-afternoon the market is mostly shut. The market serves this neighborhood. It works; you can buy all sorts of food here. But there are better markets and market streets in Paris.

We walked to the Marché Aligre from the south side of the Pont Neuf. It was Sunday and it was a brisk and cool day for a visit to the market. And Sunday is the best day to go, if you want to see a neighbourhood market in action. The Marché Aligre is surrounded by shops selling cheese, bread, wine,... More

The market wasn't easy to find (we didn't have gps) We asked several store owners around the Bastille and they weren't quite sure where it was. We did find it. I read the reviews and it was mentioned in lonely planet, so I had high expectations. There was a produce market that was nice, not exceptional, similar to many markets... More

This is definitely something to do in Paris if you are passionate about food. Better still - get a guided tour with someone who can give you background about French produce. The French are absolutely passionate about their fresh food, and view the producers as having highly important jobs. This market is a true feast for the senses with so... More

Great permanent market building, with a wonderful selection of local vendors. There is also an outdoor market with a flea market a few days a week. Good spot to pick up a stuff for a picnic lunch (try the nearby promenade plantais). All the food was great looking, and offered by vendors that take great pride in their products.

All fresh produce is on display and everything looked prime. Vegetables and fruits to please anyone. Close by is the flea market with lots of little treasures to grab. Don't miss the coffee at Aouba.

If you're in Paris and you haven't visited the Marche d'Aligre...what are you waiting for?!?!?! This place is amazing, full of local produce and some truly excellent butcher shops, cheese shops, etc. Both the outdoor and covered parts of the market have really interesting stalls and vendors, and it's cheaper than going to a grocery store to buy your food....

After reading how great this market is, we went last year and didn't understand all the love. But the indoor part was closed, and we thought perhaps that was why we were so underwhelmed, so we tried again this year. Still disappointed and the indoor section was open this time, but it's small and nothing special. The outdoor market is... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Bercy / Nation
Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to this calming neighbourhood where real Parisians make their homes.
