In the 5ième arr. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays beginning at 7am the street market at Place Maubert is open for business. If you come in late the night before a market day, you can see the bones of the tents ready for the morning opening. One comes to expect the regular merchants, one of which is seen above selling foie gras. There are stands for flowers, rugs, pashminas, fromage, fleur de sel, textiles from Provence, meats, seafood, carry out food (prête à porter?) pour manger sur le pouce. The vendor below is a regular and I have enjoyed his delicious galettes many times.
