Many years of friendship turned to romance and they married on the Caribbean island of Anguilla in 2005. Their love and passion for food grew as the years went on and they both dreamed of owning a restaurant in Marin. But in fall of 2013 while on vacation in Anguilla they visited a beach front restaurant for sale and fell in love with the idea of island life. They decided to leave CA and move to Anguilla where they opened SandBar a favorite restaurant of both locals and tourists alike. Life in the Caribbean was an amazing experience. A perfect place to raise a family. After 8 1/2 years they decided to return to Marin their old stomping grounds and take over the beloved Marché aux Fleurs. They look forward to continuing Marché’s relationship with local purveyors and farmers. To support local small production wineries and local handcrafted beer, and maintaining that special experience everyone has come to love. Darren & Alicia are very excited to connect with this special and unique community, and with family and many friends in the area it truly feels as if they have come home.

Formerly known as the Marché aux Fleurs et aux Oiseaux (market of flowers and birds), the name of the Parisian market was changed in 2014 to Marché aux fleurs Reine-Elizabeth II in Paris France. Here’s how to visit, as well as things to know before you go. Contents [show]A brief history of the Île de la Cité Flower MarketHow to visit the Marché aux Fleurs on Île de la CitéWallace fountains in the Île de la Cité Flower MarketEnjoyed reading this guide to the Marché aux Fleurs – Reine Elisabeth II? Pin this article now, read it again later: A brief history of the Île de la Cité Flower Market Founded as early as 1808, the market has attracted visitors ever since with its colourful displays and dazzling array of plants and flowers. In times gone by, the market would have sold plants and birds, meaning that it was once called the Marché aux Fleurs et aux Oiseaux. Today, there are no longer any birds for sale. The market is partially in the open air, with some wares displayed to the exterior of 1900 built pavillions in the square of Place Louis Lépine. Each vendor has their own orangerie style structure, which makes for a pretty photo opportunity, as well as the chance to do some undercover shopping during a rainy day. How to visit the Marché aux Fleurs on Île de la Cité If you want to visit the market for yourself, whether that’s so select a gift for a special someone, buy a little present for yourself, or simply because you’re curious what the market is like, then you should know that it’s completely free. The market is open from 9:30 AM to 7 PM on a daily basis and the closest métro station is Cité (line 4). Unlike some other markets, the market is open on Sundays. As such, you can easily while away a lazy Sunday morning perusing the wares of the many shops on the Place Louis Lépine. Many of the stalls are partially covered, with more retail space inside, meaning that you can even enjoy this Parisian market during a rainy day in Paris. Otherwise, you should know that you can pick up a plant for just a few euros (such as a small cactus or succulent), while more established fruit trees can cost upwards of €100. Plants are sold on a seasonal basis, meaning that you’ll have to wait until June to purchase a reasonably priced hydrangea bush, for example. Situated in the very heart of Île de la Cite, i.e. the very place where the city of Paris was born, a visit to the flower market can easily be combined with a trip to spy many iconic Parisian monuments and attractions. For example, the medieval Sainte Chapelle and the iconic Notre Dame Cathedral are both just a few streets away. Meanwhile, due to the 4th arrondissement being home to well over two millennia worth of history, there is no shortage of other quirky history and unusual things to see and do. For example, while rue Chanoinesse is home to one of the prettiest restaurants in Paris, the nearby, Hôtel Dieu is the oldest still in operation hospital in Paris. The River Seine is also just a short walk away. Once along the banks of the river, you’ll soon discover the Bouquinistes, who sell all kinds of books and vintage prints from the iconic green boxes which line both sides of the river. Last but not least, though this is the best of all the flower markets in Paris, two others are to be found at Place de la Madeleine (Monday to Saturday 8am to 7.30pm) and Place des Ternes (Tuesday to Sunday from 8am to 7.30pm). Wallace fountains in the Île de la Cité Flower Market One iconic feature of the Parisian landscape that is as quintessential as the Eiffel Tower or the Arc de Triomphe but is often instead overlooked is that of the Wallace Fountain. These public drinking fountains were installed in the latter half of the 19th-century so as to serve all Parisians. Today, there are 103 Wallace Fountains remaining in Paris, serving up Eau de Paris (Paris Water), and several of which (and of varying models) can be found scattered across the Île de la Cité Market. If you’re particularly interested in learning more about Eau de Paris, then I really enjoyed the Zac Efron documentary on Netflix (the Eau de Paris features on one of the ‘Down to Earth’ episodes).

The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité, sparkles with history. This is the birthplace of Paris, the home of the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, and the site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island, welcomes you with cozy traditional eateries, small boutiques, and what some people say is the best ice cream in the city. This is essential Paris from its very beginnings to its modern appeal.Read moreHow to get thereCité • 1 min walkSt-Michel – Notre-Dame • 3 min walkReach out directlyVisit websiteFull viewBest nearbyRestaurants10,000 within 3 milesOriental Bowl – Bar à couscous1040.2 mi$$ – $$$ • Healthy • Street Food • TunisianA.

An absolutely stunning display of beautiful flowers and plants including azaleas, rhododendrons, hydrangeas and so much more. The scent in the air as you walk through is just beautiful. So many colours it was perfect for photos. There is a gift shop and other areas selling such things as lavender bags and soaps. Whether or not you are into gardening this attraction is an absolute must when you are visiting Paris.Read moreWritten May 20, 2015This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

I was at Marche aux fleurs bird market this afternoon and along with several other people was shocked by the conditions of the animals for sale. Small animals (mice, rabits, guinea pigs) were housed in dirty overcrowded cages. Some were visibly sick or injured. The sellers didn’t care.So disappointed to see animals treated this way in a world class city. Completely ruined my day.Read moreWritten September 8, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

I don’t even consider myself an animal activist– but I am an ordinary person alarmed by the mistreatment of these birds. They are crammed into cages, they cannot fly, and many of them have visible injuries. Some are so skinny they appear on the brink of death. It is no way to treat animals and surely anybody in their right mind would take their business elsewhere. I will be contacting the correct french authorities with my concerns.Read moreWritten January 13, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

Way too many birds are crammed into tiny tiny cages, with no room to fly or move very much. Many birds looked stressed and I noticed multiple that were clearly sick without treatment. Makes me sad to watch.The flower market looked very nice though.Read moreWritten May 29, 2017This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

Just steps away from the Cite Metro stop you can see the narrow rows of booths. Wonderful odors and beautiful blooms abound. Be sure to look for the early 1800’s public water fountains in the market where the water is cold and refreshing.Read moreWritten June 9, 2015This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

I suggest you get a life and put aside your hate, so disgusting. In other news, this is the place to go if you love the colors and smells of flowers, plants, and birds of all kinds.Highly recommend and the area itself is inspiring with Notre dame cathedral just a few minutes away.

Perhaps she should educate herself on birds. How would she propose a vendor transport birds but by cages? Should people who purchase a bird and cage it be outlawed? Her comments show stupidity.They are caged for the market but have enclosures that are large once they leave on Sunday. I personally wish the bird market was open several days instead of on Sunday only. I encourage all to come on Sundays to enjoy the variety of birds available.Read moreWritten February 7, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

The stalls here sell inside and outside greenery, including flowers, potted plants and small trees; souvenirs, such as coffee cups and stuffed animals; garden ornaments; watering cans; seeds; vases; and the list goes on. I especially like to come here during my frequent stays in Paris to look at the beautiful orchids. If I’m in the area on a Sunday, I make it a point to stop by because of the bird market held only on that day. Little birds, such as finches and canaries, sing in cages and larger ones, including roosters, strut in big enclosures. Potted flowers are also featured then. I’ve always found the market to be quite crowded on Sundays with far fewer people the rest of the week, except for June 7, 2014. That’s when Queen Elisabeth II visited for the renaming of the market after her (Marche Aux Fleurs Reine Elizabeth II), because of the role the British played in helping to liberate the country during World War II and because this is one of her favorite spots in Paris. I joined hundreds of others that day to catch a glimpse of the queen.This market is between Notre Dame Cathedral and Sainte-Chapelle by Quai da la Corse, which runs along the Seine. It is easy to reach via Metro line 4. getting off at Cite. An exit here leads directly to the market.Read moreWritten March 21, 2016This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

It always seems busy but on Sundays it is joined by a Marché aux Oiseaux – Bird market. Despite the cheerful chirping and the colorful birds on show I found it disturbing to see so many – seemed like thousands of songbirds, etc, in tiny cages. I know that there are counter arguments but small birds in tiny cages seems to be a throwback to the Victorian days.Read moreWritten November 8, 2018This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.
