Marché Jourdan is a new open-air food market in Paris. For at least 40 years, Parisians living in the 14th arrondissement near Porte d’Orléans have clamored for a market of their own. Now they finally have one. It’s thanks to Pascal Cherki, the mayor of the 14th district, who made this promise as part of his election campaign. Residents in this neighborhood no longer need to venture far to stock up on fresh fruits and vegetables, cheeses, fish, flowers, and more.
Like other open-air food markets in Paris, Marché Jourdan is open rain or shine on its market days (Wednesday and Saturday mornings). The offerings will change with the seasons. This food market is on the small side, with roughly 20 vendors including a smattering of local and organic producers. I’ve not yet visited Marché Jourdan, but here’s a description from Paris Paysanne.
