Paris France News, March 21 2012. Located only 10 minutes away from bustling Place de la Bastille, Rue d'Aligre is home to the biggest food market in this part of Paris.
Rue d'Aligre itself is home to some great food stores: fish sellers, cheese shops, butchers and boulangeries. We get some of our best cheeses from a wonderful fromagerie on the street.
Then there's the daily street market that fills up Aligre for three blocks. Here's where you find perhaps the greatest variety and choice of fresh fruits and vegetables in Paris.
But that's not all. At the end of the street is Marché Couvert Beauvau, one of a handful of covered food markets in Paris still in operation. It's located at Place d'Aligre and has a selection of traditional, old-school French meats and fowl, as well as other typical food market goods. 11-year old Alexandre was fascinated by the cervelle de veau and langue de veau.
There is also a flea market filling the place with antiques, "collectibles", clothing and shoes.
