Marché d'Aligre Review
Place d'Aligre boasts two of Paris's best markets: the lively outdoor Marché d'Aligre and the covered Marché Beauvau. Open at 8 am every day but Monday, both are great places to pick up picnic essentials, which you can enjoy nearby in the small park at Square Trousseau or on the Promenade Plantée. The picturesque outdoor market has dozens of excitable vendors, their stands laden with fresh fruits and vegetables, flower bouquets, and regional products such as jam, honey, and dried sausage. The best bargains are had just before closing time at 1 pm, and many vendors are happy to give you a taste of whatever they're selling. The covered market, which closes in the afternoon and reopens from 4 to 7:30 pm, stocks everything from meats and cheeses to Belgian beer. Sunday morning is the liveliest time to visit. Don't forget your camera. Stop for a plate of saucisse and a glass of rouge (even Sunday morning) at one of the city's quirkiest wine bars, Le Baron Rouge, 1 rue Théophile Roussel.
