Marché d'Aligre

The clock tower stands watch over the activities. 

I have bought fruit, vegetables, cheese, pastries, old keys, linens, books, sheet music, and watercolors of Paris landmarks... all right here within a two block area.  Even if you do not buy a thing the market scene is a delight to observe.  No matter the weather, the markets are always busy.

 Be sure to stop in one of the cafés for a warm beverage and a pastry.
