Marché des Enfants Rouge

Foragers will go mad for this historic market filled with prepared food from around the globe.

The oldest remaining covered market, in the heart of this trendy foodie neighborhood, was built in 1615 and renamed at the end of the eighteenth century after the red uniformed orphans who were housed nearby until 1772. You can dine your way around the globe, as the Marché des Enfants Rouge boasts stands of prepared food from Morocco, Japan, Lebanon, Italy, and France to be taken away or eaten at the tables in this charming market. Also on offer are organic fruits, vegetables, and wine, as well as cheese, olive oil, and bread. A small shop sells vintage photographs, should you want a non-food keepsake to remind you of this epicure’s Mecca.
