The outdoor Flower Market (and, on Sundays, Bird Market) on Paris's Île de la Cité

This is the one Paris market most visitors stumble across on their own, since it spreads around the top of the classic Cité Métro station near Sainte-Chapelle and Nôtre-Dame. (In addition to the much-photographed Art Nouveau Cité Métro entrance, there's also a Wallace Fountain on the square—classic Paris.)

However, most don't know that the day to come is on Sunday. That's when the daily flower market transforms into a twittering, chattering bird market.
