  • There are a lot of outdoor markets in Paris and this one serves this neighborhood in the 15th, A good place to buy your food and fun to shop.  more »
  • Just below the Montparnasse Tower is the Marche on Edgar Kine Street. When I visited in the morning, the shop's tent was not set up, but by noon, there were many open-air stalls selling paintings and other items.
