Ile-de-France Sights

Place du Marché-Notre-Dame

  • Plaza/Square/Piazza

Fodor's Review

This lively square in the heart of the Notre Dame neighborhood is home to the largest market in the region, far outstripping anything in Paris. Outdoors stalls offer a veritable cornucopia of fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices; meanwhile, the four historic halles (dating to the reign of Louis XV and rebuilt in 1841) brim with every gourmet delight—foie gras, fine wines, seafood, game, prepared delicacies, cheese from every corner of France—providing a sensory

experience that will overwhelm even the most jaded foodie. The open-air market runs three half-days a week (Tuesday, Friday, and Sunday, 7–2), but the covered food halls are open every day except Monday, from early morning until 7:30 pm (closing is at 2 on Sunday). For more shopping overload, stroll along the Passage de la Geôle: this cobbled alley, leading up to the market, is lined with antiques shops.
