Full description
Discover a side of Paris often forgotten by tourists and visit the colorful Marché d’Aligre. When it comes to Paris markets, the Marché d’Aligre is about as lively as they come, bordering the vibrant North African shops and comprised of two market spaces: the indoor Marché Couvert Beauvau and the outdoor street market. Visit the rare covered market, one of the last 20 remaining from the original "les passages couverts" or covered passages nestled behind Paris' great boulevards. Stroll through the rows of stalls and peruse the vast selections of tapenades, spices, flowers, and coffees, among other things, and then head over to the connecting flea market for some bizarre finds.
  • Tastings of specialty foods
  • Mint tea in a corner café

It was good. I have been to better farmer's markets but this was definitely interesting to see and experience. The flea market was not exceptional.

Christine was spectacular intently guiding us.

Any one who has Christine will truly arrive in Paris. She was not only helpful with the market, she gave us some other tips to follow up and we have. She is a blessing to us in the city of light.
