Marché des Enfants Rouges

What do our fellow Parisians think about our city's oldest market* ?

Enfantsrouges The hedge fund controller says:
"First we can find you. Second you're multicultural."

The graphic designer says:
"The italian shop / restaurant :) and the photography shop !"

The international banker says:
"I've only stopped by this Marché once and couldn't decide what my favourite thing was. It's a lovely place!"

The art curator says:
"The atmosphere changes the moment you step through the wrought iron gate from rue de Bretagne, it is unique. The width of the shopkeepers grin and their friendly chat invariably compensates for their tendency to move at their own, leisurely pace - here there is all the time in the world. A haven in the heart of Paris which provides the local community with delicious freshly prepared international food."

The PR executive says:
"People are so nice there. It's a real French market where u can find good products and good advice for cooking. The Japanese restaurant is excellent!"

Bonapart Paris apartments



For our last two trips to Paris we've rented an apartment not far from the marché and have really enjoyed the area. Rue de Bretagne is great but le marché des Enfants-Rouges is a very special place. I've included a link to a Flickr set of a few photographs taken at the marché in May 2006 and May 2008.

O, how I wish I was back there.

the market is all about the boy spotting


here is your link francesco, see you on the next visit

Your photos capture a spirit of the market that can go unnoticed by the naked eye. You remind me that I need to take the time to see and to smell the lovely details at the marche des Enfants-Rouges.
