Do you know the cheapest fruit and veg market in Paris?

After living 5 minutes from the la Chappelle metro, (18th arrondisement) for almost one week, my French flatmate introduced me to a great fruit and vegetable market, the Marché Barbès.  Situated under the line two metro, Barbès Rochechouart, this is one of the two cheapest fruit and vegetable markets in Paris.

For around 11 euros, I bought 3 mangoes, a  kilo of strawberries, 3 eggplants, 2 lettuces, 2 lemons, 6 nectarines, dates, cucumber and 5 oranges…Unbelievable value!

The market is really crowded, you have to prepared to push through people to get your produce. You also need to be careful of your valuables as the area is popular and its always very busy. This is not a posh area in Paris, so be street smart. Having said all that, the prices here are so cheap, so its definitely worth making the trip.
