Description

Paris Best Market tour

Enjoy a Food Tour in the most distinguished and picturesque market in Paris, situated within a stone's throw of Opéra Bastille.

The Aligre Market resides in the 12th arrondissement on the Rive Droite (right bank) of Paris. Every morning (except on Mondays), its stallholders welcome you right on the streets of the Aligre square.

Actually, The Aligre Market offers you two markets and two charming atmospheres. Under the covered market called Beauvau, around the old fountain , you find French and Italian delicatessen, fresh fishes, poultry, dairy, cut flowers...
On the outdoor part, there is a curious mix between shouting « merchants des 4 saisons » (fruits sellers) and antique dealers, half of a food market, half of a flea market.

Around these 2 markets, there are more food related shops and delicatessen. You can even enjoy wine with cheese or delicatessen on an old wine barrel ! Or mingle with the locals and sip a hot chocolate or hot wine during the winter or an aperitif in summer.

You will feel like one of the locals as you chat to shopkeepers and taste local cheeses, cured meats and chocolate.

On this food tour you will learn about the history of this very special market, and of course, sample delicious fresh food from the market stalls. Discover a hidden secret of Paris and chat to the local shopkeepers, who will proudly show off their wonderful creations and items.
