Le Marais, six nights: tips for food mkts, budget eats, occasional treats

Jump to last reply

Hi all

Arrive in Paris round midday on Eurostar, 18 Sept. Leave on early train 24 Sept. for Switzerland.

Travelling on my own with my two sons (12 and 14); we're from Australia, so big, exciting trip for us!

We're staying in an apartment in Le Marais.

I'd like some ideas for food shopping that will be colourful, lively, different (for us) and not super exclusive/expensive. We will probably eat at the apartment most, but not all, nights.

So when we do eat out, I'm looking again for something atmospheric and at the lower end of expense range. Not really interested in 'fast food', unless of course it's a fast crepe on the go. Is it possible to sample some escargots or are these also a specialty (read expensive) for Parisians?

And just on the topic of markets, which markets (i.e. second-hand, antique, etc.) would you recommend for a browse that would please all of us?

Grateful for any suggestions.
