Marché Dejean
In the working class Goutte d’Or disrict (within an area also called Château Rouge), the Marché Dejean is at the heart of Paris’ Little Africa. During the 1950s, the area attracted mainly immigrants from Europe (Belgians, Italians, Poles and Spaniards), while from the 1980s onwards, immigrants from West African countries (Senegal, Ivory Coast, Togo, Congo and Cameroun) settled here. There are lots of small retailers selling exotic foods, beauty and cosmetic shops, fabric stores, hallal butchers and public phone shops. Located in the Rue Dejean, this market of perfumed and colored stalls offers a captivating atmosphere, and an excellent introduction to African culinary culture. In this completely new environment, your senses of smell, sight, touch and hearing will be assailed with new sensations. The African community of Paris and the surrounding area come here to buy essential products for traditional dishes. Among these products, unknown for the most part in our Northern latitudes, are fish such as tread-fin, tilapia or barracuda, and vegetables such as manioc, okra or yam. You can also find a tantalizing variety of peppers, fresh herbs and fruit.
