Paris Photos 2: Books and foods market

Finding this book market near Pantheon was a surprise. After a lot of internet search, I found out that it’s the Rue Mouffetard market located just outside Maubert Mutualite metro station. This is a traditional open air food market to buy cheeses, meats, fish, breads, and any other food and then of course books! It’s a must see if you are visiting Paris for the first time as it’s an authentic example of how Parisians buy their meat and produce. Obviously there are cafes lined up across the streets where you can just sit and watch people 🙂

As a quintessentially foodie family, no trip of ours can be complete without visiting a fish market or a butcher's shop :)
