One of Paris' oldest market streets, Rue Montorgueil is a pedestrian-only zone lined with some of the city's best fish, produce, and fine grocery shops. The shopkeepers here are known for their enthusiasm and their old-world warmth, too, so when you visit you'll be sure to hear cries (or even songs) announcing fresh salmon, peaches, or cheeses on sale. Though Rue Montorgueil is in the smack-center of the city, it retains a small village atmosphere.
