The liveliness of Versailles' markets is testimony to the vitality of Versailles’ businesses.
One of the first mentions of the city of Versailles in the Seventeenth Century is precisely the granting by Louis XIII of letters patent to establish a local market.
In the new city created to the north of the palace by Louis XIV, the present Notre Dame district, a large place was also given to economic factors: the present day market’s location was equipped with market stalls under the reign of Louis XV, which were replaced in 1841 by the covered market that is still there.
The infrastructures for establishing a new market were built facing the Saint Louis district (erected in the Eighteenth Century). These charming "stands" remain, and are called the Carrés Saint-Louis.
