The many food markets are always one of our top points of interest when visiting the city of love and food, Paris. Even though the Marais is our favourite district, we somehow never managed to check out Marche des Enfants Rouges food market, which is located there, and which TimeOut calls a ‘deluxe food market’, mentioning that it will ‘fill the emptiest of stomachs and empty the fullest of wallets’. The name derives from the red clothes of the children at a nearby orphanage that closed a long time ago.
This covered market has many market stalls that sell fruit, vegetables, meat and fresh seafood, but many people visit it for the lovely food stalls with seating, some of which is partially outside the covered area of the market. We had just had lunch at Café Breizh, so didn’t buy any more food, but it all smelled lovely and it’s a good sign that it was so crowded.
