  • Great place to buy some food or to buy lunch. They have a few outdoor picnic tables to sit and eat, but they are often occupied. Lots of well-prepared food. And this market is very old and historic.  more »
  • Overrated place in Paris, also by the show "Wonderful". Only interesting for lovers of cuisine in North Africa and Arabia on weekdays. Not all the stalls had opened either. In addition to the snack sits, there was only one flower stand. This visit really wasn't worth it.
