World's Top Food Markets
Elaine de Koning
Marché des Enfants Rouges, Paris
Besides trading in colorful produce and lusty charcuterie, this petite marché in the Marais (one of the oldest in Paris) is the spot for an affordable meal assembled from the variety of ethnic prepared-food stands.
Best Bites: La Rôtisserie Enfants Rouges (lunch for two $24) serves up crisp-skinned rotisserie Bresse chicken with potatoes and a glass of vin rouge, while Le Traiteur Marocain (lunch for two $25) is a must for its bracing spiced lamb-and-prune tagine and fluffy couscous royale. —Anya von Bremzen
