If you're staying in the 11th arrondissement of Paris and are looking for a good open-air, traditional market, you're in luck: this district counts several excellent options. Whether you're looking for fresh fruit and vegetables, meat or fish, top-notch bread, or specialties native to other cuisines, the metropolitan 11th has it all. 

Marché Belleville

This market is particularly specialized in food and goods from North Africa and East Asia. Make sure to explore the gritty and fascinating Belleville neighborhood before or after your stroll through the market. It's an exceptionally busy market, so be prepared to brave the crowds and come armed with an adventurous palate.

Open: Tuesday and Friday, 7:00 am to 2:30 pm

Marché Charonne

This busy neighborhood market is well-known for its excellent produce, and the nearby bakeries are almost uniformly good. After strolling through the stalls and buying a few goods, have coffee on one of the sprawling terraced cafés in the area.
