Thinking Mouffetard and Montorgueil especially, but maybe also the market at Aligre. I know many shops are not yet open that morning, and so just trying to time some of our touring.

No, they won't be active. Most vendors will have their day off.

You can also search on google maps and it will give you the hours of operation.

well, those are shops, basically, not street markets and Les Halles is a shopping mall.

There aren't any of those weekly roving street markets open on Monday in Paris. There is a covered market open in Passy.

If you are dying to see one, you could combine that with a walking Art Nouveau/Art Deco tour of Passy area, there are some good specimens, I think Guimard lived in that area. Just google "Passy art nouveau walking tour" or something. There is a good pedestrian market street there, also (sort of like rue de Buci but newer) on rue de l'Assomption. It's fairly upscale, though, nothing like the ones you named.

There is a wine museum there, also, but I didn't find it that great.

There are a few street markets open on Monday in the burbs, but wouldn't be worth the trouble to go there.

As you have some latitude in your plans, I would suggest to visit the museums on Monday (many of them are open and rather close on Tuesdays).

If you want a street market with more locals and less tourists, you could consider rue de Levis, close to Parc Monceau. On Saturday, you could even combine rue de Levis with the weekly organic market boulevard des Batignolles. It is the biggest one with the Sunday one boulevard Raspail.
