This local fabulous food/flower/flea market is a must see when in Paris. Located in the 12 district of Paris it is composed of hundreds of stalls where sellers sell every type of food, flowers and an array of flea market items such as clothing, dishes and beauty products.

Every time I go, I bring back hoodies from the standing markets like harissa and anchovy pastes, wonderful mustards, honey. Anything you can think of.!Makes me want to have an... More

My mom and I spent the morning at March d' Aligre. Everyone was very friendly and it was fun to barter with vendors. The only thing I regret is not living in the neighborhood so that I can buy all the beautiful and fresh produce.

This is worth the visit. We had a guide. They are able to help you through the market on a busy day. The food is spectacular. The strawberries are like nothing we get in the states!! And the cheeses....My God the cheeses are like nothing you will ever eat across the pond. Our guide walked us through many of the... More

A typically local activity ! Open air (and a building) market where you can stroll as long as you want and get your groceries for the day.

If you enjoy markets, this won't disappoint. The flea market section is quite small, but still good for browsing. It is the food on display that will blow you away. The indoor market has an amazing selection of Seafood, cheese and meats. Lots of cooked stuff, too if you want a picnic.

Most of the vendors set up their stalls in the morning and by mid-afternoon the market is mostly shut. The market serves this neighborhood. It works; you can buy all sorts of food here. But there are better markets and market streets in Paris.

We walked to the Marché Aligre from the south side of the Pont Neuf. It was Sunday and it was a brisk and cool day for a visit to the market. And Sunday is the best day to go, if you want to see a neighbourhood market in action. The Marché Aligre is surrounded by shops selling cheese, bread, wine,... More

The market wasn't easy to find (we didn't have gps) We asked several store owners around the Bastille and they weren't quite sure where it was. We did find it. I read the reviews and it was mentioned in lonely planet, so I had high expectations. There was a produce market that was nice, not exceptional, similar to many markets... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Bercy / Nation
Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to this calming neighbourhood where real Parisians make their homes.
