The leafy square and quiet fountain of Place Monge provide the setting for this charming if pricey food market, a calm alternative to the touristic bustle of the nearby Rue Mouffetard. The stallholders take pride in their products: the beekeeper will turn up in person to sell his honey, while the fishmonger will tell you about how he gets his fish straight from the Normandy coast. Bear in mind that prices can run high in this rather affluent corner of the Quartier Latin; still, in this picturesque little square, you get what you pay for.
