Rue Montorgueil is one the first market streets I visited in Paris and the experience has always stayed with me. It’s one of the most famous streets in Paris and the surrounding area is even referred to as “Montorgueil” like a neighborhood. Montorgueil is definitely worth a visit!

Market streets are very common in Paris and serve as an outdoor grocery shop – with products coming from specialized merchants who care about the food they are selling. You can often find locally sourced, high quality produce – from fruits, to bread, to cheese, to meat – all along the same street! Of course, you will be paying a premium for these products, but if you have the money to spend, then it’s absolutely worth doing your Paris grocery shopping on a market street!

Here are a few ideas for what to do on Rue Montorgueil.

Shop for Cheese

Enjoy a Pastry from the Oldest Patisserie

Stohrer: Patisserie Stohrer is the oldest patisserie in Paris, having been opened by baker Nicolas Stohrer in 1730! Stohrer became known for selling his famous Baba au Rhum which you can still enjoy today! This is one of my favorite bakeries in the city – and it’s where I discovered my favorite pastry in Paris: the rosier!

Just off the street is Experimental Cocktail Club, a hotspot for specialty cocktails at 37 Rue Saint-Sauveur.

It’s one of the best cocktail bars in Paris!
