About the Paris Market Walk Walk in Paris
Paris is widely considered a top destination for gastronomes from around the world. In perhaps no other culture than in France is food such a vital aspect of daily life. On this 2.5-hour walk, led by one of our culinary experts, we will explore this food philosophy at its source, an historic local market.
Your food docent (either a chef, cookbook author, food journalist, or Parisian epicure) will take you through the Marché Aligre, a neighborhood market, little visited by tourists and much coveted by locals. Just like every French town, every Parisian district has its own weekly, bi-weekly, or quasi-daily market. As we stroll amongst the stalls, our discussion will touch on a variety on themes such as how the market functions, food provenance and the concept of terrior (the character of the soil), or how Parisians shop for their food and the impact of this on the French diet and gastronomic philosophy.
We will also discover and sample some of the various delectable wares on display sread more
