Paris Market

The very first market I visited when I first moved to Paris was at the Place d’Aligre. It is very lively and the vegetables and fruit being sold there are cheaper than most markets. I found out that this is because they sell produce that the other market vendors pass on so you need to eat what you buy right away. I was in the neighbourhood so stopped by for a few photos.

There is a covered market too. This was the very nice cheese counter.

  1. What a glorious bounty! I guess you have to get used to buying produce everyday and eating it that same day. I bet that helps to avoid wasting food.
