This is a real foodie's paradise! Meat, fish, patisserie, delicatessen, fruit and veg, wine......if you like your food, this is well worth a visit. You will probably come out drooling and your belt feeling a little tight.

After we had lunch we stumbled across this market so took a walk around. Wish we waited to eat as the food looked nice! Watch out for meat smells, though.

The market is well worth a look around even if you do not need anything the displays of produce are exceptional and there are a few little bars there too very reasonable

While walking between Joan of Arc square and Gallery Lafayette or nearby Capitole square you can see at your Eastern side the market. It is not impressing from around streets but while entering into this market then you find a lot of beautiful market points....More

I think the market is open every day but the best times to go are early in the morning when it's busy and produce are the freshest, after 1pm there isn't much happening.
