Poissonnière is a station on Line 7 of the Paris Métro. The station was opened on 5 November 1910. It is near the junction between the streets of Rue La Fayette and the Rue du Faubourg Poissonnière, after which it is named and along which fishmongers (French: "poissonnières") brought fish from Boulogne and other harbours on the Channel coast to the market at Les Halles in chasse-marées. The route from the coast generally followed that of a Roman Road and entered nineteenth century Paris at the Porte des Poissonniers.

This station has three entrances on Rue La Fayette and features a 1960s-style yellow neon metro sign.
