This oldest covered market in Paris, and maybe in the entire France, got its name (the market of red children) due to the nearby orphanage where kids were made wear red to easily spot runaways in the crowds of Le Marais. Today, the market is not that vast, so look for the wrought iron gates to enter. However, inside it’s still the harbor of gourmet delight: Norman cheeses, herbs of Provence, Burgundy wines, Dijon mustards, affordable ivory foie gras of Gorron, black truffles (sold for a fortune), Aveyron oysters and insanely delicious pastry. Here you will also find farmers selling their produce, flowers and dairy products.
