LE MARCHE DES ENFANTS ROUGES

The oldest market in Paris (1615). An enormous guinguette, the Marché des Enfants Rouges is the market to visit in Paris : historical, lively, high-quality, authentic...
Every morning, the colorful stalls add a highly visual dimension to this market making for some splendid photos. The particularity of this market, with its Moroccan, Japanese, Lebanese, Chinese and West Indian stalls, is that it is possible to eat reasonably-priced specialties from across the world at the tables which each stall sets out.
The market owes its name, (‘Market of Red Children’), to an orphanage where the children wore red capes. It was listed as a historical monument in 1982.
