Nested in the heart of the 3rd arrondissement of Paris and of the renown Marais neighborhood, the Marché des Enfants Rouges is both a typical Parisian location and a place to meet and discover. Between greengrocers, fishmongers, butchers and cheesemongers, typical of a market as it is found in France, catering stands and restaurants have found their place to make this market a real cocoon filled with small gastronomic gems.

The oldest covered market of the capital is also the most popular one thanks to its relaxed and joyful atmosphere. This typical Parisian institution opens its doors to you from Tuesday to Sunday, for your grocery shopping as well as for your cravings.


A journey, it is exactly what the caterers of the Marché des Enfants Rouges have to offer. From the Parisian sandwich, through the Maghreb to the country of the rising sun, it is a real culinary journey that is offered to you.

During our numerous visits to the market, we had the opportunity to taste Alain's famous sandwiches. Here, we are not talking about a simple baguette with a slice of ham and butter, but a real sandwich offering you flavors and greed. Small eaters should refrain, Alain's sandwiches are well filled with the best cheeses and charcuterie sourced by the Market vendors themselves.

For a trip to the Orient, we recommend a stop at Traiteur Marocain to taste the best Moroccan culinary specialties. From couscous to tagine to gazelle horns, this caterer is the most popular in the capital, a well-deserved reputation!

Finally, for those of you who want to go to the land of samurais, we recommend the Bento of Chez Taeko. Considered as one of the best Japanese restaurants in Paris, Chez Taeko will transport you thanks to its mix of authentic and surprising flavors, all presented in a small bamboo Bento. A guaranteed treat.

Don't miss to discover this Parisian jewel during your walks in the Marais, something to delight young and old gourmets.
