The surroundings of Le Marais
Tips for your stay in our apartment
Along the Rue des Archives, you can reach at 39 Rue de Bretagne the Marché des Enfants Rouges. Built at the request of Louis XIII in 1615, is famous for being the oldest food market of Paris. It is called in this way because it occupies the premises of a former orphanage whose unfortunate guests wore red clothes. The market extends from the Rue de Bretagne, where you can identify the beginning with a pound sign, until the Marais.
In this historic place of Paris the atmosphere is very lively and bubbly, where the smells of fresh fruit and flowers mingle with the voices of passers-by, the cries of the vendors and the sounds of the market: open daily, except Mondays, you can also buy meats, cheeses, wine and olive oil.
Besides shopping, you can come to the Marché des Enfants Rouges for lunch: you can buy food in one of the many stands and eat it in public tables located at the end of the market. The market is very popular with the inhabitants of the third arrondissement who have dubbed the "place du village" to emphasize the membership function and user-friendly market.
