About
Also known as Marché Richard Lenoir, this market is one of the biggest markets in Paris, stretching along the Boulevard Richard-Lenoir and across the Place de la Bastille. Twice a week, you can stroll through rows of shops selling everything from fresh produce like vegetables, fruits, and meats, to mouthwatering French "street food" such as pastries and crepes. The market is also a shopper's paradise, offering a variety of items from clothes to kitchenware and even artwork. Be sure to prepare cash and brush up on your bargaining skills. Start your market day early to grab the best local produce as most shops close by early afternoon. – Tripadvisor

    Loved!!
    My daughter and I decided to visit the market on a Sunday morning while on vacation. We had the absolute best time wandering the stalls and looking at the delicious food and various items to shop for. We bought some homemade soaps, some homemade jams, bread, etc. I bought a very unique handmade purse as well. I believe the market is only a couple of days a week, but if you are in Paris, and want to visit a great Market, I recommend this.

    Busy Sunday Open Air Market
    The Sunday market at Bastille is quite large and has a wide variety of goods for sale from foods to clothing to cheap trinkets to hardware & household items. I especially liked the stall with beautiful scarves made from remnants of silk. I was there after 1pm so some of the vendors were breaking down their stalls but there was still plenty to see.

    A big Parisian market
    The Bastille market is located on Boulevard Richard Lenoir and it extends from rue Amelot to rue Saint Sabin. It is a big market with many fruit and vegetable stalls, meat, cheese, clothing, kitchen knick knacks, scarves, and seafood. We enjoyed it and I recommend it but I rated 4 rather than 5 because I felt the concrete areas that the market is covering needed cleaning. Would be better if the city would hose down the bird debris off the benches, and clean up bedded areas before the market. Nevertheless, I still recommend the marketand particularly enjoyed the guitar player entertaining the crowds.

    Great Market
    We love local street markets and booked our hotel close so we could attend the Sunday Market. Many locals shop here and there is a great selection. We bought food to snack in our room. We also bought lavender from a farmer who sells it loose or in sachets. We also purchased homemade soaps. These will make wonderful gifts. We hoped for maybe tie dye tee shirts or handwoven textiles but there were none to be found. We are going again to see more.

Great outdoor market! Beautiful fresh foods! Wish we were locals!
We tried the fresh oysters, the cheeses, bread, wine. So good! Lots of non food stalls too. Great way to spend a Sunday in Paris!

Excellent stop if you're self-catering and you're there Sunday or Thursday. We went to get provisions for a couple of evening meals and got excellent cheeses and ham, but there are all manner of superb products on display.
