French street markets

Most cities and towns in France hold open air markets (marches decouverts) at least a couple of times a month up to a couple of times a week as well as covered markets (marches couverts) up to six days a week. These markets sell a range of items from fresh produce to furniture. In smaller towns they provide a means for local farmers to sell their wares.

In Paris, every arrondissement has markets with notable ones being:

  • President Wilson Market held up the middle of Avenue du President Wilson near the Pont de l'Alma on Wednesdays and Saturdays all morning to mid afternoon
  • a bird market every Sunday on the Ile de la Cite
  • Rue Cler which is a lively market street in the well to do 7th arrondissement near the Eiffel Tower
  • the busy market street of Rue Montorgueil near Forum Des Halles filled with boulangeries, cafes, craft and fresh produce shops
  • a string of market shops selling clothes, textiles and souveniers in Rue de Steinkerque which leads up to the the Sacre Coeur from the Anvers metro station in Montmartre.

Bordeaux a large city in the southwest of France as approximately 20 markets located in its districts.
