Bohemian Rhapsod Zoom In 5

Flower Child
Photograph by William Albert Allard

Inscrutable as the Mona Lisa, a young girl stands beside a flower stall at the Marché des Enfants-Rouges, literally the "Market of Red Children." Named after a bygone hospital for orphans founded by King François I, the market has supplied Marais residents off and on for almost four centuries. Traditional markets and artisans' workshops give locals alternatives to the supermarchés and modern stores that have sprung up along the historic streets.
