Throughout the year the flower market is a most agreeable surprise in the heart of Paris, color and aroma fills an area where most of the buildings are administrative. This is the most famous and one of the last markets of its kind in Paris. It offers the widest choice in floral varieties, especially the orchids and birds on Sundays. They have many varieties of baskets and crates of all sizes and materials. It's a delight and I regretted not being able to buy any plants. It is open Monday-Saturday from 8-18 and Sunday from 8-19.
