French markets are as much about lifestyle as they are about shopping. You buy your vegetables, have a coffee, chat with your neighbours and enjoy delicious specialities from around the world. Paris offers wonderful markets, each with a strongly distinctive personality. Autumn is the perfect season to come and discover them, and stroll amidst their stalls like a true Parisian! The Hotel Opéra Lafayette invites you to discover a selection.


Marché d'Aligre: the must-see of the 12th arrondissement

With a very particular warmth and vitality, the Marché d'Aligre is true neighbourhood market much loved by the locals and a great meeting place in the Bastille district. Open every morning except Monday, it consists of a covered hall and an outside market. There are also flea market stalls where you can buy all kinds of odds and ends.


Marché des Batignolles: organic products and a chic ambiance

Friendly yet relatively serene and very much appreciated by Parisians, this market in the 17th arrondissement offers 100% organic products. Fruits and vegetables are here in abundance, but you can also grab some flowers, handmade soap or homemade jams!


Marché des Enfants Rouges: international gastronomy

In the 3rd arrondissement you can find the oldest covered market in Paris. Home to culinary wonders, it has stalls offering exotic cuisine from all over the world. You can shop here for ingredients, but this market is really a place for eating. Tuck into sushi, Savoy cheeses and much more in the trendy setting of the Marais district.

Situated in the centre of the capital, the Hotel Opéra Lafayette welcomes you to your Parisian adventure. In close proximity to three railway stations and perfectly connected to public transport, our hotel offers pleasant, comfortable and spacious rooms.
