It’s a known fact, the Marais has the reputation of having a neighborhood life worthy of a little town in France. Inhabitants there have their habits, and meet every weekend at the Marché des Enfants Rouges. It owns its name (The exact translation would be: Market of the red children) to the orphanage that was there before, and where the boarders wore a red suit. It’s also the oldest market in Paris.
Created in 1615 in order to supply the center of Paris, it has always been very popular and successful. Today, all Parisians meet there to escape the commotion of the city, and to enjoy a sunny afternoon, buying great products, or brunching. Within the multitude of tables that we find there, we hold onto Estaminet des enfants rouges for its friendly atmosphere.
Le Marché des Enfants Rouges is open Tuesday to Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 4p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., and Sundays from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
