The story behind Parisian markets

Paris, the capital of France, is a modern city. The markets have, however, retained their authenticity. The les enfants rouges market, in the 3rd district of Paris, still attracts a lot of city dwellers and tourists; proof that Parisians remain firmly attached to their heritage and culture.
