Place Maubert - Paris (France)

Marché Maubert | Place Maubert 26/09/2020 10h47

This market is one of the oldest markets in Paris, established there in 1547 after the transfer of the Palu market from the Île de la Cité, which had become too small. It then occupies the place where open-air courses in theology and philosophy were given and its role is to supply the left bank of the city. Bread, fruit and vegetable market, it will be suppressed for a time with the opening of the marché des Carmes on the site very close to the carmel de la place Maubert ( a French monastery, on a site now occupied by the police station for the 5th arrondissement of Paris below rue de la Montagne-Sainte-Geneviève.) in Place Maubert in 1818, before being reinstated at the end of the 19th century. Nowadays, this market takes place every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. It is technically located on the Boulevard Saint-Germain space, although it bears the name of the square located on the other side of the public road. [ Wikipedia ]
