Dating from 1615, the Marché des Enfants Rouges is the oldest covered market in Paris, France.

It was created by two aides of Louis 13, the little market had to supply the new neighborhood called the Marais.
The name of the place translates as “Market of the Red Children”, red being the color of charity back then. The children were clothed in red since they were cared for in a nearby orphanage.

The market offers fresh fruits, vegetables, flowers and bread, plus restaurants where guests can buy prepared meals.

Look for the small iron gate. Pick the best ingredients and cook under the tutelage of Chef Brian.
