I love Marche d'Aligre!
Aug 2020
my favorite market, I have known sellers for many years, when I come to shop, I feel like I came to my grandparents. We met many here, even when I was at university, I grew up in front of their eyes, and they grew old, we can hug each other when we meet, joke around. I love Marche d'Aligre!

Life in the Market!
Mar 2020
I have visited several times. The display of fruits and vegetables brings gardens to life! The vendors call out and really help with their wares. The flea market in the center brings Paris to you. The nextdoor food market carries you through fresh meats,fish.chees, candies and such. A real delight to shop and see.

Great little market
Nov 2019
I went to the Marche d'Aligre for the second time on a rainy 2 November 2019 (prior visit 2011) and still liked the size of the market in the square and the undercover market. It still had the flea-market with excellent prices compared to the larger Paris flea markets (i.e. I purchased a small antique item for 5 euro compared to the same items in the big markets priced at 25 - 35 euro.). Friendly place, lots of locals and good fresh food produce as well as surrounding cafes with local colour.
Yes, Marche de Bastille is far bigger but only twice a week and Marche d'Aligre is daily and has that little bit more of interest. Why not take in both on the same day and compare?

Paris experience without too many tourists.
Sep 2019
Paris experience without the tourists. Wonderful. A foodie paradise. Grounded. Some bric a brac stalls along the way but if that’s what you want go to Vanves or Clignicourt. Abundant with fresh food and colours.

A LIttle Tired?
Aug 2019
I used to think this place was great. People from the neighborhood shop there and in the open-air market in the Place d'Aligre. There is a place inside - a fishmonger - who sells oysters on the half shell and white wine. But they're the same price as they are in the restaurant. And, again, those oysters looked tired. The rest of the purveyors - nothing to write home about. Nice walk-through for the tourists who don't buy anything. There is a little bistro right on the square alongside the market. Same old stuff - steak, frites, salmon, maybe a tagine? It's cheap and not bad. (I pass.)

Great little indoor market (deli type), fresh veg and fruit, small flea market
Jul 2019 • Couples
Enjoyed our experience as love cooking so great for stocking up on ingredients. Around 15 small indoor stalls - well presented (butchers, fish, fromages, fresh drinks and deli type goods). Outdoor market extends down 2 streets in the morning, full of beautiful fresh produce. Flea market small, not sure if you can pick up a bargain or not as no prices, interesting to look around. Mainly bric a brac. Combined visit with walk on beautiful planted Promenade des Plantes (Coulée verte René-Dumont) about a 6 minute detour from the market

Local Food and Flea Market
May 2019 • Solo
There is a daily market (bar Mondays) in Place L'Aligre and the adjoining streets. It's bursting with gorgeous fresh produce and it makes you want to be a local just so you can fill a straw shopping basket with bounty and rush home to cook lunch. It's just a local market - nothing touristy about it but that's what's nice about it. The flea market bit is on the actual place and is full of junky bricnbrac. There were some interesting old drawings done by a man in the 1930's and 40's but it lot of it really was dross. I did, however, find a lovely old hand coloured engraving of the Seine in the olden days, with Notre Dame in the back ground. I guess I can call it an archival document now that the Cathedral has been damaged and lost it's spire. The merchant was open to bargaining a little and he carefully wrapped it in such bubble wrap as he had to hand, to ensure a safe trip to the antipodes.
It's just behind Place de la Bastille on the Opera House side. I go the Metro and walked from there. I also had a delicious lunch in a small Tabac on one of the street corners but I can't find it on Trip Advisor to review it, sadly. It was lovely though and very reasonable. Again, just a pleasant meeting place for local friends and neighbours and not a visitor in sight except for me.

Average flee market
May 2019 • Couples
Average market. Mostly vegetables. The flee market part is poor. Don't go there it is not worth the effort. Skip this attraction.

This sounded great on paper but was not that impressed. Walked through the Flea market and lots of stuff but mostly like garage sale stuff and nothing I needed or got too excited about. Went to the seafood hall and unless you know French it’s pretty intimidating and merchants not too friendly to help. Most is stuff you’d by in quantity if you’re going to take home to cook.

Took a look at the produce and wanted to get some cherries but some vendors fruit not too sweet and look a bit damaged or not what makes it to the grocery stores.

Got a few things at a nearby grocery store but could do that anywhere and scored a whole roast chicken for 5 euros. Another good find was a pizza shop but overall it was interesting but not so great for tourists and more for locals. Better things to do with your time if on holiday.

Food and Fleas
May 2019
Marché d'Aligre, in the revolutionary Faubourg Saint Antoine district, combines a daily (except Monday) flea market with an extensive open-air and covered food market. The flea market with about 40 vendors really has everything, from fleas to old porcelain to second hand and antique books. Browsing is a pleasure, prices are rock-bottom, even without haggling.

The food stalls, mostly vegetables and fruit, but also meat, fish, flowers and prepared dishes are a delight. Numerous specialty shops in the buildings behind the stalls and in the covered marché Beauvau. Drift towards the Southern end of rue d'Aligre for unbeatable prices, in particular before closing around 1 p.m. The shouting matches between vendors hawking their wares is a concert. With markets like this, who needs supermarkets? On Sundays the place is a bit crowded, try to hit it on a weekday.
