The clock tower stands watch over the activities.
I have bought fruit, vegetables, cheese, pastries, old keys, linens, books, sheet music, and watercolors of Paris landmarks... all right here within a two block area. Even if you do not buy a thing the market scene is a delight to observe. No matter the weather, the markets are always busy.
Be sure to stop in one of the cafés for a warm beverage and a pastry.
