Our Favourite Asian Markets in Paris

If you live in Paris or are visiting and want to buy some Asian groceries then our guide has the lowdown on the best Asian markets in the city. Chinese, Korean or Japanese – Paris has got a wealth of different markets with dry, fresh and frozen specialty ingredients!

Asian Grocery Stores in Paris

There are multiple Asian grocery stores across the capital city and there’s not one particular area where you’ll find them. The majority are Chinese grocery stores but sell ingredients and products used and from across Asia. For example you’ll easily find Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese products in these large Asian grocery stores.

Chen Market

One of my favourites Asian grocery store chains in Paris, Chen Market currently have 4 stores open throughout the capital. Well spread out, there are stores in Montmartre, Belleville, Lafayette and in the 13th arrondissement. All their stores are on the larger side and have a great selection of products. They stock fresh noodles, a huge tofu selection, hard to find vegetables, frozen spring rolls and a wide choice of cooking sauces. Regardless of what you’re looking for, you’ll most likely find it at Chen Market. Also worth noting that their Montmartre store has a fresh bubble tea area for take-away.

Tang Frères

Tang Frères is probably the most famous Asian market in Paris. Around since 1972, they now have 4 stores in Paris and 3 Tang Gourmet outlets serving great Chinese food. Their stores are large and stock fresh Asian vegetables and fruit, tinned goods and frozen food. Their prices are on the reasonable side however most of their locations are slightly out of the way if you’re in central Paris.

Les Halles de l’Asie

Hidden amongst a sea of bars, beauty salons and Asian restaurants lies Les Halles de l’Asie. A small, cramped yet surprisingly large Asian supermarket, they’ve got an incredible variety of products on sale. I’ve generally gone here when I can’t find speciality ingredients or herbs that aren’t on sale in other Asian markets. They’ve even got a small butcher and fishmonger section.
