Partager Paris Markets Marché Maubert

Marché Maubert 5e

When I have trouble sleeping, and sometimes there are those nights that I am too excited about the next day to fall asleep...I use the simple technique of planning a menu from all the lovely fresh produce at the fresh markets of Paris.  I have decided to visit each market and find their specialities.  Want to come along?

This past week I visited the Marché Maubert in the 5th.  An easy bus ride and I am there .... trying to decide which end to start.  There are around 20 - 25 stalls; a bit hard to tell since these are still the summer sellers, the abonners (regular booth sellers) are still on vacation.  This is France you, at the market today was an abundance of bijoux sellers, from China, South America, southern France, Paris, (they even take credit cards!) ..... also, your usual seasonal fruits and vegetables, my favorite stall - la Miel, not only honey in its pure form, but also soaps, cakes, candy drop, which are one of my trusted purse items, clothes,including hats, panama and winter berets and caps,  blankets (some of the best prices I have seen so far), delicious products from the Southwest of France, home to foie gras, cassoulet, easy to heat meals (cog au vin, cuisse de canard ... can't wait to try those) and all types of delicious chopped meats and patés, and did I mention wines from Bergerac?

The market was over before I was ready, but there is always next week!

  1. My apartment is on rue Maitre Albert. This is my "home" market. It is as active in the winter as it is in the warmer weather. I love wandering this market with my camera and then sitting in Village Ronsard with an espresso and just watching.
    Another favorite market is the covered market at Passy. Her is a secret: in the back is an oyster vender who has a few chairs around a small counter. You can pick from all the different types of oysters and even have a glass of white wine while you watch people shop. This is the most fun around Christmas time.
