Marché d'Aligre, Paris

In the centre of the Bastille neighbourhood, John and I visited this charming covered-market several times. The building was built in 1779 and is called Le Beauvau.
The covered-market is surrounded by stalls selling fruit and vegetables and flower stalls like the one above with its gorgeous peonies.
The covered-market houses specialty shops selling fish, meat,
cheese and wine.
The Place d'Aligre also features a market clock and a daily flea market,
as well as charming restaurants and cafes like Moisan, above, a cafe/bakery. Come for the produce, the bargains and great people-watching.


  1. Gorgeous peonies! I'm so envious that they are everywhere in the flower shops and for so few Euros!

  2. Our favourite flower, rarecat! It was nice to return to Toronto to find them in the shops here too!
