Marché d’Aligre Market

Between Rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine and Rue de Charenton

One of the city’s best markets, the Marché d’Aligre—located behind the Bastille between the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine and the Rue de Charenton—stands out compared to Paris’s other outdoor markets because its lively, personable vibe makes it feel like a village within a village. At its heart is the Marché Beauvau, one of the last remaining covered markets. Manageably sized, it contains everything from fresh poultry, cheese, and North African harissa among the permanent stalls to flea-market finds like vintage hats and shoes. The shops and eateries that spice up the surrounding streets make this a favorite among foodies.

Insider Tip: Don’t miss a stop at Le Baron Rouge (1 Rue Théophile Roussel; 33-1-43-43-14-32), a working-class bar with affordable wines served with saucisses or oysters. If there are no empty tables, an upended wine barrel outside the storefront will suffice.
