Marché des Enfants Rouges
Located in the heart of Marais, the Marché des Enfants Rouges brings together remarkable flavours and cuisines from all around the globe in a multi-cultural, authentic and friendly setting.
Founded in 1615 under King Louis XIII and now classified as a Historical Monument, the Marché des Enfants Rouges takes its name from an orphanage which once stood in the site 300 years ago. The children housed here were dressed in red clothing. With its stalls bursting with colours and scents that change with the seasons and its worldly caterers open all day long, this market is a truly joyful place.
The chefs prepare little delicacies before your eyes to be eaten on the spot, in a welcoming and culturally rich ambience. Having trouble deciding between the savoury couscous from the Moroccan caterer and the mezze in the window of the Lebanese vendor? Simply hop over to Takéo for its bentos that are sure to make your taste buds rejoice. If you visit the market on Sunday and haven’t quite mastered the art of brunch, stop by Estaminet for a pure moment of pleasure.
