Parisian market place built in 1965, the Marché des Enfants Rouges (red children’s market) was named after the Enfants Rouges orphanage created in the sixteenth century. The young residents were then dressed in red, as a sign of Christian charity.
Nowadays, it is a well-known market for street food and fresh products! The idyllic setting is quite perfect for a stroll, but be careful: the delicious scents emanating from the place are difficult to resist…
The market must-do stands
