パリのマルシェ金曜日おすすめ5軒開いてる32軒Life in Paris

On Friday weekends, some of the marches are open until the evening, so it might be convenient for you to go after shopping or to buy dinner in the evening. The number of open marchés is a little less than 32. The marché marked with a red circle is recommended.

Five recommended Friday marches

Friday’s recommendation is my regular stop at the St. Charles marché (08:30 – 20:30). It’s cheap, good quality, and you can buy the same radishes and Chinese cabbage as in Japan. But unless you’re going to the Eiffel Tower or plan to shop at BeauGrenelle, this place might be a bit inconvenient for you.

Other than that, I would recommend four.

  • If you’d rather not go all the way to the Marché, I’d recommend Marche Agesaw (7:00-14:30), the smallest marché in Paris, next to the Madeleine Abbey. It’s close to the Opera House, the Louvre and Place de la Concorde.
  • Les Enfants Rouge (8:30 a.m. – 8:30 p.m.), located on the west side of the Marais, near the Republique, is a covered walkway, so it’s a good place to stop by on a rainy day or for a stopover. There are plenty of places to eat in, from Japanese bento boxes to Italian and Mediterranean food. We also recommend Bistro Les Enfants Rouge nearby, so it’s hard to decide which one to eat at… lol.
  • East of the Marais and a bit further east of the Bastille, I would also recommend Marché Arrigre (9:00-13:00/ 16:00-19:30), which is a good collection of quality shops. The indoor marché is open until the evening, although it takes a lunch break. It’s also great to buy cheese and ham here and drink it in your room (9:00-13:00/16:00-19:30). You can also buy several types of Bordier butter, a famous cheese shop. If you’re a fan of the marché, you can also stop by nearby Daumesnil (12th arrondissement, 7:00-14:30), which is the longest in Paris and runs for 1.4 km.
  • If you want to go to Sacré Coeur in Montmartre, try the Marché Couvert Batignolles, which is open in any weather and has a good selection (8:30-13:00 / 15:30-20:00).

I’ll write down the details of the five recommendations. I’ll list all the marchés in the second half of this article, so take a look at them all if you have the time.

Personally, I often go to La Motte Piquet Grenoule marché, which I don’t recommend here because the meat, fish, and cheese are good but the vegetables are not as good as they should be, but it’s good for everyday use for people who live in Paris.


Marché Aguesseau

The smallest marché in Paris, 62 meters long! It’s at the Madeleine train station, so you can go there while you shop or once you get off the train when you change trains. The closest place to the Opera is this marché. It’s also close to Mailles, famous for its mustard, and the flagship shop of Hermes.

This is one of the marchés I go to the most. I often take my friends there when they come, it’s a great place to see and reasonably priced. There is also a bakery called Blé sucré, famous for its croissants, and the best restaurant in Paris, Virtus (a Michelin star), is close by. There is a great cheese shop in the indoor marché, the larger of the two shops.

Marché couvert des Enfants Rouges

It’s a marché in the Marais area, it’s indoors, and it’s a great place to have lunch here after you’ve done some shopping, since it’s indoors and there aren’t many days off. If the weather is nice, you can buy some prepared food here and eat it in the Parc du Temple, a little further west.This is the oldest indoor marché in Paris, built in 1615 and renovated in the 90s. The name comes from the color of the clothes of the orphanage (moved in 1777) that once stood next door. There is a very good bistro called “Les Enfants Rouges” nearby, which is also recommended.

Marché Saint-Charles

This is the marché I go to most often. The potato shop pictured in the photo is my favorite, and their potatoes, called Grenouille, a small potato that Mr. Bocuse is said to like, are the best in Paris and overpriced. The greengrocer across the street from this potato shop is also good quality and affordable, and there is also a horse meat shop coming on the left side of the street towards St. Charles from October to February (if you don’t mind). A nearby bakery wins first place in Paris for its croissants and éclairs, and I recommend this one too. You can take a break at a cafe, but often you stay long enough to have lunch.

Marché couvert Batignolles

This is an indoor marché in a suburban area. The Côte de Bouffes (loin steak with beef bones) was about 27 €, which is about 30% cheaper than what you’d get in the 7th arrondissement, but the outside wall of the marché is also quite graffiti-heavy and a bit less Parisian. There is a beautiful park nearby, so you can buy some snacks to eat in the park before you go.

All marches open on Fridays (32 locations)

Marché Bourse

The marché is located right next to the stock exchange (back of the picture). It’s very late in the morning for a marché, but it’s also convenient that they open till 8:30 pm. It is not far from Opera Garnier, Petit Palais, Louvre, etc., so you can buy dinner at this marché and have it at your hotel while you are sightseeing.

Marché Monge

This marché is one of the outdoor marches that were created during the indoor marché closure movement of the 1920s, like the marché at Raspail and others. The quality is good and the prices are not too high. It’s not convenient enough to go all the way there, but if you want to go to the Botanical Gardens or the Grand Mosque, you should go there. The mosque is really beautiful.

Marché couvert Saint-Germain


Photo©https://www.petitfute.com/


This marché is the most building-like of all the indoor marches. It’s in the St. Germain area and it’s easy to get to, but slightly more expensive. It’s a good place to stop when it’s raining or when you’re in the area, but it’s often crowded with tourists, so it’s all rather expensive. When we tried to buy a fruit, we were charged a premium without a cash register and the change was cheated, so it was a bad impression, but the fishmonger was a nice guy, but expensive.

Marché Raspail

I’ve never been to Raspail on a weekday, but it’s not far from the Parc du Luxembourg and Bonmarche, so it’s easy to go there while you’re sightseeing. There’s a great butcher shop called Yves Marie Bourdonnec on the way from this marché to Bonmarche, so if you’re staying at an Airbnb, it would be so much fun to buy meat at Raspail and beef at Yves’. The meat from Yves here is quite expensive at 100€/kg, but it’s delicious, and the meat is carefully cured, so it’s very tasty (there’s not much to explain about the marche). Oh, yes, the marché has a long history, dating back to around 1920.

Marché Anvers

The marché held at the station where you get off when you go to Sacre Coeur Temple. The goods are not bad, but the prices are high because of the tourists. It’s a good place to go for a little bit of sightseeing and to enjoy the prices of tourist attractions. But if you have time to go to other marchés on other days, it’s better to just skip it and head to Sacré Coeur Temple.

Marché couvert Saint-Martin

It’s an indoor marché, but in an area I’m a little uncomfortable with. I don’t like the Strasburg St. Denis station because it smells like pee… the stuff they have isn’t bad and the prices are reasonable. I might stop by if I’m passing by, but I don’t feel like I need to go all the way there.

Marché couvert Saint-Quentin

The largest indoor marché in Paris. It’s a good place to stop by in the morning on a moving day because it’s close to Gare de l’Este and Gare du Nord. They have a lot of deli items, so it’s fun to buy a deli here and eat it while taking the TGV. The prices are a little reasonable. There are a lot of shops, so I recommend you to buy at the shops where the locals are lined up, because they don’t like expensive shops.

Marché Belleville

As you can see from the picture, it’s not a French marché, but a marché with an exotic flavor. I think it’s interesting to go there if you’re staying around here or along metro line 2. You can buy weird spices for cheap, and the prices in the city are cheap and there are lots of great Chinese food options, so I recommend Best Tofu or Northeast Dumpling Shop after visiting the marché.

Marché Père-Lachaise

This marché is located in the 20th and last arrondissement of Paris. If you like music, it’s a great place to stop by the Edith Piaf Museum or something like that. Just north, you’ll find the 2018 Baguette Competition Champion 2M. It’s great just to get a ham cut from the marché and eat it in a baguette. It’s about a 10-minute walk to Père Lachaise Cemetery, where Balzac and Oscar Wilde’s graves are located.

Marché Popincourt

Located just east of the Marais, in an area called Oberkampf, this marché is an easy place for tourists to visit while shopping. This open-air marché was founded in 1903 and was created during the 1870-1900 renovation of Paris. There’s also a restaurant with a butcher shop, Bidoche, just around the corner and it has a great atmosphere, so it’s a good place to visit. It’s a good idea to bring an insulated bag.

Why the marché in Saint-Honoré? It’s an area where you’ll want to say.Saint-Honoré is a street of world high brand stores. It’s open until night on Wednesdays and until the afternoon on Saturdays, so you can stop in while you shop. Nearby, I recommend Restaurant LUMEN, an Italian restaurant near the Louvre, which is really good. Highly recommended.

It’s the longest marché in Paris and it takes about 20 minutes to walk normally (lol), and it’s a whopping 1385 meters long. It’s affordable, has a lot of shops, and is a great place to visit if you like marchés. It’s very close to Gare de Lyon station, so if you have some time to spare before you get on the TGV, you might want to go there to buy some fruit and vegetables. The bus stop for the direct bus from the airport is also close by, so if you arrive early in the morning and have a little extra time on your hands, it’s a good idea to stop by.

Marché Auguste-Blanqui

There are a lot of Asian people around Piazza Italia, so you can find Asian foodstuffs, and overall foodstuffs are reasonably priced. There are many Asian restaurants around here, so you can go to a marché and buy some honey as a souvenir, then have pho for lunch. Don’t worry about the lack of registered restaurants, it’s the work of the French. As you can see in the picture, there are definitely more than 10 restaurants, lol.

Marché Bobillot

I can’t comment on the area as I’ve never been there, but it’s a suburban area marché so the prices are reasonable and the quality varies. I’ve bookmarked about 400 restaurants, cafes, etc., but there were none near here at all, so I’m not sure I’ll ever go there again. (That’s why I’m sure I’ll find something unexpected when I go there. lol)

I’d recommend the area for people who are just visiting Paris for the third time rather than the first time, such as the Gare d’Austritz train station, the botanical gardens and the Grand Mosque. Prices are affordable and things aren’t too bad. If you have time, I recommend VenteEphemere, a children’s clothing store located at the next stop on the RERC line, François Mitterrand Library Station, where the petit bateau is very cheap.

It’s right off the Seine, but this area is the Seine but it’s a completely new town, so it doesn’t feel like Paris. VenteEphemere, a children’s clothing store, is close by, as is Store-F, the largest incubation and accelerator facility in Europe. If you have time, go there.

The marché is not far from the Danfert-Rocheleau station on the RER-B suburban train line, which comes from Montparnasse and Orly airport. It’s an affordable marché because of the low cost of living nearby, and if you’re staying nearby, you can buy breakfast at the marché, eat in the park, relax and have lunch at Bistro Kigawa!

This is a Friday only marché not far from the train station in Convention. It’s next to the Georges-Brassan park, so you can buy a side dish here and eat it in the park. You can buy a croissant at Laurent du Chêne, which is just around the corner, or if you’re really hungry, you can go to Sung San for Korean food.

The area is not far from the Eiffel Tower and the Statue of Liberty is located down by the River Seine. It’s a bit inconvenient to get to, but if you need to go near there, this is a great place to visit. The prices are reasonable due to the location, and if it’s a marché day, Sushi Gourmet is open nearby, so you can have sushi on the way home after shopping at the marché. That restaurant is reputed to be delicious even among the Japanese.

On Tuesdays, you can hustle with the Pointe Jour marché, which is about a 5 minute walk away. It’s close to Roland Garros at the Paris Open, the Stade Francais Paris stadium for rugby, and the second stadium of PSG Stade Princes for soccer. Affordable prices. Carrefour is also very big, so if you don’t have anything you want, you can buy it there and have lunch in a park in the area.

Marché couvert de Passy

Passy is in an upscale residential area, very close to the Eiffel Tower and other landmarks, so it’s a nice place to live. The glass block windows and other elements of the atmosphere are also nice, so it’s nice to have lunch here and then walk in the afternoon to the Palais de Chaillot on the other side of the Eiffel Tower.

Marché couvert des Ternes

The marché is located a little further out in the suburbs. It’s safe to say that it’s open indoors, and they are open many business days, even on rainy days. There are several cafes along the street where you can have lunch. But if you want to get here, you can go to Marché Couvert de Levallois) (Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays: it’s wide open if you go from 7 to 1pm) on the other side of the same station, about a 10-minute walk away. They have a wide selection of products and are inexpensive. They also have various shops nearby.

Marché couvert Batignolles

This is an indoor marché in a suburban area. The Côte de Bouffes (loin steak with beef bones) was about 27 €, which is about 30% cheaper than what you’d get in the 7th arrondissement, but the outside wall of the marché is also quite graffiti-heavy and a bit less Parisian. There is a beautiful park nearby, so you can buy some snacks to eat in the park before you go.

Marché Ornano

The marché is close to the flea market in Clignancourt. It’s also a 10 minute walk from my favorite restaurant, L’arcane. It’s very inexpensive, but it’s surprisingly crowded and you’ll probably get tired if you go there on the way to see the sights (lol).

Marché couvert La Chapelle

The Marche is located further north from Gare du Nord. The area may be a little bit difficult for Japanese tourists to visit, but there are many good shops around here. If you look at a partridge for 6€ per bird, I think you can get it for about 50-70% of the city price. If you go there, I recommend you to go to Cafe Romi beyond the overpass, or BOB’S BAKE SHOP in the south.

Marché Place des Fêtes

One of the 25 marchés that came into existence after the closure of the indoor marchés (1870-1900). This one was founded in 1893, and it’s affordable because it’s in the 19th arrondissement and a suburban area of Paris with low land prices. You can get exotic foods from Africa and the Middle East, but it’s a bit far away. If you’re staying at an Airbnb or other nearby place, I’d suggest going there.

Marché Crimée-Curial

One of the marchés held along the boulevards des Maréchaux in the suburbs of Paris. The marchés Brune (1933), Lefebvre (1934), Berthier (1935), Porte Brunet (1937), and Crimée (1938), which were started after the demolition of the wall that once stood on the boulevards, are all exciting marchés for history buffs. I don’t think you have to go all the way to the city. Maybe if you wanted to buy groceries on the cheap and lived along the 5th subway line.

Marché Davout

Located in the 20th arrondissement in the suburbs of Paris, it was the first marché to be opened after World War II when the Nazis occupied the city and it’s very affordable, and if you’re staying in the vicinity, it might be interesting to visit, There is also Poniatowski (1951). Tokyo is like that, but the city has its own history, doesn’t it?
