Paris Market

Paris market and flea markets list

One of the joys of exploring this fabulous city is to wander through a Paris market or two, whether it be old clothing, second hand belts, stamps [timbres] or fresh fruit and vegetables, patés, beef, chicken or veal.  Pop over to any one of these locations and have a grand time, ambling around, talking to the stall holders, practicing your French … and enjoying every moment!

Come on … flea markets in Paris, shopping in Paris … what could be more fun?

I love this photo I took (below), the Parisians are so lucky to have fresh fruit and produce markets all year round, and this is one thing I really miss now that I’m not living in Paris.
