Stretching along several blocks north of the historic Place de la Bastille, this is a market worthy of Paris’s rich history and global clout. Butchers, produce vendors and fromagers compete for your attention, with street performers and enticing falafel stands all along the green-lined stretch of Boulevard Richard Lenoir. The market is open on Thursdays and Sundays, though it’s best to visit on a lazy Sunday morning. But don’t sleep in too late – the market is only open from 7am to 3pm! You can make a day of your trip and enjoy all that the exciting Bastille neighborhood has to offer.
