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.
Eat a French Meal
I recommend the delicious Duck Confit at Le Compas.
Admire the Architecture
Au Rocher de Cancale has a beautiful Versailles-style façade in a creamy blue and gold palette!
Buy Fresh Flowers
Pick up a fresh bouquet at Anaïs flower shop.
Shop for Cheese
Get your cheese from La Fermette
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!

Get Fresh Meat
Pick up your meats from Cul De Cochon, at No. 98
Sip a Cocktail at Night
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!
Hope that gives you a better idea of what to do on this famous Parisian market street!
