I visited this market on a Sunday morning. There are cheeses, fish, pastries and even an outdoor large rotisserie with whole chickens and potatoes. A great place to pick up lunch or just stroll and eat with the French. An eye & mouth pleasing market. The vendors are artists in arranging their foods, especially the fish and the fruit &... More

You need not be in search of food, but for a pleasant – very pleasant – walk then Rue Mouffetard is the street for you. Not on a Monday though as you will find the shutters down in front of the shop windows and the food stalls won’t be around at all. This street in the 5th arrondissement (district), dates... More

There are cheese shops, wine shops, multiple bread and pastry shops, meats, poultry, fish, fruits, vegetables, and plenty of restaurants. The street is cobblestones for much of the way. On Sundays, a few blocks are closed to traffic. In good weather there is sometimes entertainment down near the church.

This is the Paris that I think everyone wants to see. Lovely little food shops, everything from baked goods to cheese to seafood. Musicians playing in the street. We were there during the day, but I would love to come back in the evening on our next trip to Paris. Really a great experience.

Rue Mouffetard is a must for any visitor to Paris. The market itself is lovely - but just the introduction to a street and area steeped in history. As the old Roman road to Paris from the south, it is coated in the ghosts of everyone who has lived there. Walk to Rue de Pot de Fer to walk near... More

We love the Rue Mouffetard! Full of lively creperies, bistros and brasseries, you can walk the length of the street at night and feel not only safe, but happy and satisfied as you sample the wonderful Paris foods offered. Most bistros offer reasonably priced prix fixe menus and for 12-20 euros you can get a true taste of Paris. Be... More

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighbourhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighbourhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
