Paris markets can be hit-or-miss. That’s why I’m pleased to unveil a new tool called the Paris Market Finder in the Resources section of my website. Most markets in Paris are open only one or two days a week. Locals know by heart the days of their closest or favorite markets. But for travelers, figuring out which markets are open each day and the best timing, can be daunting. My Paris Market Finder tool can make that easier.
It’s divided into two sections: You can use the Paris Market Finder to sort the regularly occurring markets either by day-of-week OR sort them by different types of markets (flea/antiques, food, crafts, books, etc.). Whether you’re looking to find markets that are open on Sunday, for example, or to see all the weekly flea markets at a glance, the Paris Market Finder tool will help put the information at your fingertips in a jiffy.
Pair it with Markets of Paris, which is organized by arrondissement (neighborhood) and gives a description of each market. And you’re set to go…all you need to do is grab your basket. (Or buy one at the market!)
The Paris Market Finder will reside on my website as a free resource. It has taken months to develop this tool. A big shout-out to Breo Media‘s Jennifer Danker for helping to execute my vision and devising a digital tool that’s simple to use. We welcome your feedback. The city of Paris also provides useful information about markets on its website.
Another change that I’ll soon be making to my website is phasing out the RSS feed. If you haven’t already subscribed to receive posts by email, sign up now so that you don’t miss out on any content.
