It’s the biggest and best open-air market in Paris. A stroll through these aisles truly ranks among life’s greatest pleasures. Wheels of triple-créme Brie, a mind-blowing array of goat cheese, links of cured sausage, mounds of fresh produce, buckets upon buckets of briny olives, bouquets of brilliant blooms and any cut of meat you can imagine beckon the epicurean in all of us. Work up an appetite meandering the blocks of gourmet offerings before ending at a stall offering roasted Bresse-Gauloise or Faverolle chickens, which are turned on a spit while the fatty drippings cascade onto a tray filled with carrots and potatoes. And don’t miss the Middle Eastern bread merchants, the oyster shuckers, the wine gurus, the confiture stalls… This is my favorite market in a city filled with great ones.
