Marché aux Chevaux
Located just north of the Porte Saint-Honoré, the west gate of Paris, the Marché aux Chevaux is a pasture that serves as the horse market of Paris. Also called the Foire aux Chevaux, the pasture provides a meeting place between horse traders and their clients, including the nobility of Paris, the king’s cavalry regiments, and the drovers who carry goods and people to and from the city.
