L. E. Travel Tips: Marché des Enfants Rouges

From the street, one might not even think to stop at this small covered market in the 3rd arrondissement. But for those that do, many delicacies and treats await inside. Marché des Enfants Rouges was established in the early 1600s making it the oldest covered market in Paris. It is located at 39 Rue de Bretagne in the Marais neighborhood.

The locals love this place and for good reason. The market is small and intimate and you can buy fresh vegetables, bread, wine, flowers, and freshly made sandwiches, wraps, and much more. There are a variety of food options be it Italian, Greek, Lebanese, Japanese, and much more. Taste and sample wine before you buy. Grab a seat at one of the tables within the market and enjoy your food and drink of choice.

There also is a small shop with loads of old black and white photographs from the city of lights.

Look for the small iron gate and enjoy all within!
