The Batignolles covered market of Paris!!

In my continuing saga of finding places to shop and eat in my eternal Paris, I shall bring you to an off the beaten path covered market . As I look around for a parking on street nearby, I was led past the Pont Cardinet and over the railroad tracks leading to the Gare Saint Lazare and into the Brochart area where I end up parking underground of the Batignolles covered market and voilà another wonderful find. This is Paris, the more you walk, drive it the more you will find wonders! Let me update this older post to tell you a bit about it and maybe you too will have your find in eternal Paris.

The covered market or Marché Couvert des Batignolles, at 96bis Rue Lemercier 17éme arrondissement by metro line 13 Brochart as well as bus lines 54 and 74, is a wonderful example of glorious shopping in seldom visited areas of Paris. We go here once in a while and it is our area of nice food shopping. The market, built on the ground floor of a residential complex of the 1970’s, is undoubtedly one of the most bobos in Paris.

Customers often seem to know each other and really feel a neighborhood spirit. There are about fifteen traders and organic product stalls. This market is mainly food-centered with an excellent butcher at reasonably reasonable prices, a well-stocked grocer, Breton terroir products, Mediterranean products, Lebanese, Moroccan, African, a Portuguese rotisserie and a wine cellar. The place, you will have understood, is very popular with the locals. It is open Tuesdays to Fridays from 8h30 to 13h and from 15h30 to 20h, Saturdays from 8h30 to 20h and Sundays from 8h30 to 14h.
