What started off as a Roman road during the ancient times turned into a busy and popular market where locals and tourists come to gather the freshest of ingredients from local producers.
If you come here you can look forward to lots of independent stores with a family-like atmosphere, coffee shops with the highest quality of their beverages and an open market with stalls selling all sorts of ingredients for future processing.
It's a 3-minute walk away from the metro station Censier-Daubenton and a bus stop (line 47) with the same name. If you come here for the open market, do not come before 10 or after 12, since that is when most of the stalls don't operate. Bring cash with you, because the vendors usually do not accept cards.
The market is open from Tuesday to Sunday. It starts around 9 am and closes at lunchtime.
