Discreetly hidden away in the fashionable Marais district, the Marche des Enfants Rouge the oldest Parisian food market (dating to the early 1600s) has become a weekend brunch fixture for Paris' trendy "bobo" crowd, and a popular casual lunch place for locals during the week. The market offers a wide selection of vendors selling fresh produce, meat, cheese and bread, however the real draw is the variety of international eateries which prepare their cuisine directly in front of you: Japanese, Italian, Moroccan, French, and Afro-Caribbean are all well represented here. Beat the crowds to find a table around the perimeter of the enclosed market, or otherwise opt for takeaway and enjoy it in the leafy green Picasso Museum park nearby on rue Vieille du Temple. Follow the longest lines to discover the most popular stands - Japanese bento boxes and Moroccan tajines are usually the favorites of the crowd that frequents this vibrant neighborhood place. This is one of those local gems in Paris that's a secret worth keeping.
