Get A Taste Of West Africa At Marché Dejean

Picture of Culture Trip Paris
Updated: 28 April 2016
Parisian markets aren’t all white asparagus and blue cheese – there are several markets here that specialize in foods from far-flung lands. Marché Dejean, nestled in a corner of the 18th arrondissement called La Goutte d’Or, is known as the heart of Little Africa. Here the stalls are piled high with exotic produce: manioc, plantains, papaya clamor for space, and the smell of fresh herbs and dried spices lingers in the air. The intimate street buzzes with West African music, and voices hailing from the Ivory Coast, Cameroon, Congo, Senegal and Togo come together in delightful chatter.
