Short description

Saint-Pierre Market and the Halle Saint-Pierre are located on the Place Saint-Pierre (Saint Peter's Square). But everything is special in this small space at the foot of the funicular of Montmartre ! First it is a market of fabrics... Second point, it is not a real square, only a street.

But it is sure that it is still the reference and an institution for fabrics, textiles and haberdashery at bargain prices.

In addition, a few meters away, there is the Halle Saint-Pierre Museum at 2 rue Ronsard, is a metal structure built in 1868 in a style close to the Halles Baltard in Paris. Today it houses the Max Fourny Museum of Naïve Art, with more than 600 paintings and 80 sculptures. It is unique.

Saint-Pierre Market and the Halle Saint-Pierre are located on the Place Saint-Pierre (Saint Peter's Square). But everything is special in this small space at the foot of the funicular of Montmartre !

Saint-Pierre Market. A historical place

First of all, it is not a real square, only a street that goes from n°3 to 19, without any number on the even side. In 1871, it is also the heart of the revolted Montmartre of the Commune of 1871 and which left many jokes in Paris (Fire of the Tuileries Palace). Six months earlier, it was also from there Saint-Pierre Market square that Gambetta, Minister of the Interior of the new Third Republic, left by balloon on October 7, 1870 to raise an army in the city of Tours, on the Loire river. While Paris resisted the Prussian siege. By misfortune, the contrary winds carried the balloon above the Prussian lines which encircled Paris. It escaped the worst and finally landed in an oak tree near Montdidier.

The Saint-Pierre district and the Saint-Pierre Market of fabrics

This story begins in the 1920s. Edmond DREYFUS, a modest merchant was shuttling between Levallois and the Montmartre hill with his wheelbarrow full of fabric rolls. Thanks to his talent, the establishment quickly supplied the biggest names in couture: stylists, designers and decorators. The Saint-Pierre Market quickly became an institution in the world of textiles and influenced the entire economy of the neighborhood.

The Saint-Pierre Market is still the reference and an institution for fabrics, textiles and haberdashery. The streets of Orsel, Charles Nodier, Livingstone, Seveste, Pierre Picard and Saint-Pierre Market are home to a large number of stores specializing in furnishing fabrics and decoration. The district is frequented by professionals in the field of couture, stylists and decorators of international renown ... and tourists, because you can find all the fabrics and accessories for sewing at a wholesale price, even for individuals. There are large stores such as Dreyfus, Reine, Moline, as well as smaller stores that distinguish themselves by their specialty.

The Halle Saint Pierre and the Max-Fourny Museum of Naïve Art

The Halle Saint-Pierre at 2 rue Ronsard, is a metal structure built in 1868 in a style close to the Halles Baltard in Paris, which has now disappeared (the architect was one of Baltard's pupils).

Today it houses the Max Fourny Museum of Naïve Art.  Mr. and Mrs. Fourny have gathered thousands of paintings and sculptures attributed by donation to the Museum of Naïve Art of Vicq, 15 rue de la mairie - 78490 VICQ for a part and more than 600 paintings and 80 sculptures in the museum of the Halle Saint Pierre.
This museum is open from Monday to Friday from 11 am to 6 pm, Saturday until 7 pm and Sunday from 12 am to 6 pm. Naïve art is characterized by soft colors applied in a uniform manner, the refusal of perspective, techniques from popular art. The paintings simplify reality, express the dream, the fantastic.
