About rue Mouffetard
Showcasing the tradition of Parisian street markets the rue Mouffetard harkens back to the days when all shopping was
done like this. From fresh produce from nearby farms to the
breads and pastries baked on the premises everything smells and is
as wholesome as can be. Although the name of the road comes
from bad smells in the medieval times, today it is fresh breads,
pastries, fruit and wine that fill the air!
Starting at the northern end near the Pantheon and walking as
far as the Saint-Médard you will pass by all manner of real Parisian
shopping from the bakers through to the market stalls at the end.
Walk downhill and at the end rest your feet in the little garden of
Visit la Mouffe as we call it today!
While some of the other streets of Paris have a lot of information
about them that is not so true about rue Mouffetard, and to understand
how the street works is not simple so therefore we decided there
should be a website dedicated to this traditional Parisian delight.
Not attempting to be a guide to the whole of Paris, but rather focusing
just on this one area in our tradition of "FastFacts" guides to
more or less hidden tourist spots which are off the beaten track.
We do very much hope that you will find this site
