The Delightful Markets of Montmartre

Published on March 10, 2016 by Ralph and Karen

paris market

Nothing introduces the world to the French way of life quite like a trip to a Parisian market on a long, slow morning.

Cobblestone streets lead the way to delicious artisanal cheeses, fresh seasonal produce, succulent meats, and of course, a veritable river of wine. Few people rush through the shopping experience here; market strolls are meant to be savored. Think of it as the first course of the delectable meal to follow!

The iconic Marche d’Aligre in the 12th arrondissement is one of the city’s most popular markets, a rightful tourist attraction that is well worth a visit.

But here in the 18th arrondissement, home of our Le Tresor du Montmartre apartment rental, several food markets provide delectable produce and goods primarily to the locals who live here. These grocers are smaller and quainter than the Marche d’Aligre, but offer their share of a copious harvest.

Marché Barbès

The buzzing sounds of community fill this outdoor market, where you’ll find piles of crisp herbs, fresh fish and heavenly pastries. A large selection of African treats and goods can also be found here, as well, so you’re sure to find something unique.

This is one of our favorite markets: grab a snack to enjoy while wandering around, or select ingredients for a gourmet dinner at home.

Meet The Author
Hello! We are Ralph and Karen, an Anglo-American couple who fell in love with Paris and France over 20 years ago. Work-related trips brought us here, but we kept coming back for holidays, then extended visits, and then… In 2005, we decided nothing was stopping us from buying a place of our own in Paris. Lots of research, learning, and many kilometers of sneaker-rubber later, we put our house in the United States on the market. It sold in 10 days, and we found our apartment in Montmartre two months later. After a massive, year-long renovation project and its many challenges, we hit our biggest bump yet. As it turned out, we had to stay based in the US after all. Our lovingly remodeled apartment in Paris became a place where we returned only for short visits. In 2008, we started renting to guests—travelers like we once were (we always preferred apartments over expensive, cramped hotels). And the rest, as they say, is history. Le Trésor de Montmartre has proved quite popular, to the extent that we have trouble finding a break in the booking calendar to stay there ourselves! In the midst of this, we found Nice. After several holidays in and around Nice, we thought, why not buy a pied-à-terre in the area? Despite the challenges involved in renovating from afar—which we knew very well at that point—we jumped in again in late 2010. After another renovation, another year, and hundreds more gray hairs between us, we added Le Trésor de Nice to our rental portfolio. A year so so later we picked up 3 other apartment to manage. We hope you find the properties inviting, and hope even more that you will come see them for yourselves! Please get in touch with questions, or to book your stay at one of our apartments. We’d be happy to share our insider knowledge of these places we love so much.
