Le Food Market: A Monthly Event That’s Redefining Street Food for Paris

HiP Paris blog. Le Food Market. Wander under the flags and contemplate your many choices

A new neighborhood block party has arrived in Paris. On Thursday, September 24, rising and veteran restaurateurs lit up the stands of a narrow median strip on Boulevard de Belleville to offer freshly made plats for 5-10 euros. Even as rain threatened to spoil the crisp, fall evening, the mingling of friends and neighbors, fragrant clouds of steam lifting, and sounds of crackling oil kept energy and appetites at a high.

Paris is well known for its diverse open-air markets, offering fresh produce, flowers, meat, dairy, and handcrafted goods daily. Markets capture the spirit of a quartier—its people, history, and rhythm. Le Food Market, which officially launched on July 9, takes place once a month from 6-10:30pm and recruits different vendors each time. Come to Le Food Market and you’ll get a glimpse of what’s new and inventive in Paris’ culinary scene, as well as rub elbows with Parisians from all over the city, many of whom may not have otherwise made the trek to the off-the-beaten-path 19ème.
