Marché Raspail

The largest organic market in Paris where you will find resident epicureans on Sunday mornings.

This tony neighborhood market (on Tuesday and Friday) transforms into Paris’s main biologique (organic) market on Sunday, featuring 50 stalls of choice organic fruits, vegetables, meat, cheese, wine, and homeopathic remedies. Look for the gorgeous artichokes in springtime, langoustines in summer months, and French olives, sausages, and cheese year-round. But best of all is the poulet rôti at Romain & Ses Poulettes—the spot for a prized blue-footed roasted chicken. These organic birds are, sorry to sound cliché, tender and juicy with aromatics of thyme and ideal for a Sunday picnic lunch or dinner.

Note: Enter the market at the intersection of rues du Cherche Midi and de Rennes.
