Stroll around the must-see Parisian markets

Wandering the capital like a true Parisian is the best way to discover Paris. To get an authentic feel for the city, we suggest browsing around a Parisian market or two. To make it easier for you to decide where to go, we’ve chosen some lively markets close to the Hotel Danube where excellent produce is available at pleasingly low prices.

 

Aligre and Belleville; essential Parisian markets

Aligre is a particularly beguiling food market. It’s vibrant with a perpetual dynamism and scents evocative of faraway places. Some produce comes from Asia, some originates in Africa or other European countries. If the weather is pleasant, why not take a seat on the terrace of a café near the market?

Freshness is the main asset of the produce offered in Belleville. You’ll be delighted by the charming mixture of languages ​​spoken in this market. French here, Arabic over there, a little English, Chinese.... Plus, at the end of the day, prices are systematically lowered, and you can get amazing deals.

 

The Marché des Enfants Rouges and Batignolles

The Marché des Enfants Rouges stands on the site of a former orphanage where the children wore red uniforms, hence the name. Quality, vitality and conviviality prevail in this immense market that is also the oldest in Paris.

Batignolles is excellent for finding organic produce of exceptional quality. The cheeses that you can buy here accompany the wines created by small artisan winemakers exceptionally well.

 

A visit to the Marché Saxe Breteuil

Doing your shopping while enjoying a typically Parisian setting is what awaits you in Saxe-Breteuil. In no other market do you get such a perfectly framed view of the Eiffel Tower along a tree-lined street. A huge choice of fresh produce is offered. The prices may be a little high, but the quality cannot be denied.
