Paris has an abundance of historical monuments that makes wondering around the streets of this enchanting city a wonderful experience, and amongst these many legendary buildings you will find the market selling the oldest food in the city. ´Le Marché des Enfants Rouges` dates back to 1615 when Luis XIII reigned, and its name literally means ´the Market of the Red Children, ` a name that was given to this event in the XVII century taken from an old orphanage where the children all dressed in red uniforms.
This emblematic market is located in the elegant zone of Marais and has dozens of stalls where you can buy fresh and tasty fish, fruit, vegetables or flowers, although the market’s defining point is the variety of delicatessen that is has on offer to visitors.
Exquisite dishes to awaken your senses and lasagne that will make you discover new flavours, as well as the tirimasú, the cous-cous and Moroccan cuisine, Lebanese delights and other marvellously prepared exotic varieties that fill the Marche des Enfants Rouges with their aromatic perfumes, the oldest indoor market in Paris. Truly a market to awaken all your senses.
