Marché Saint Quentin

I knew of this covered market, but had not visited Saint Quentin, one of the few remaining covered markets in Paris.  The fruits and vegetables are acceptable, but this market shines with its international flavor and food offerings.  The soaring ceilings have been protecting Paris shoppers for over a hundred years.

There are delicacies from Africa and Italy, spices from north Africa, and even Pasteis from Portugal.  There are a few vendors with region-specific foods from France and a beer boutique.
