The Rue Mouffetard is allready a very old street. In Roman times it was the mainroad from Paris to Rome. This narrow street with its old-fashioned signboards and mansarde roofs from the 17th century has kept much of its special character.
I enjoyed to walk down this street and have a look at its shops and in the morning at its market. In the Rue Mouffetard and its side-streets you can find also rather cheap restaurants, where you can have a good lunch.
Every morning, except at mondays, you can visit the picturesque market in the Rue Mouffetard in Quartier Latin. It's one of the oldest markets in Paris.
At the market with its colourful stalls and in the shops you can find all kind of food and specialities, like cheese, meat, vegetables, fruits and more. Here in the Rue de Mouffetard it was for the first time in my life I saw a streetstall with ducks.
If you want to find wine at a fair price, go to rue Mouffetard. There are at least 5 specialized stores in the area.
Each of the shopkeepers has his own network of wine growers to obtain,at a fair price , some good and inexpensive wines.

Place Monge has markets on Wed, Fri and Sun. It is not a large area, but there is lots of stuff available. Whether you buy or not, it is fun to browse and sometimes engage the sellers. The guy in the picture was a very good salesman. He kept offering samples of his foie gras and we kept eating. I ended up buying a couple of small tins to bring home.
