Taste over 8 local delights at an animated open-air market

Discover one of Paris' oldest, most fascinating and vibrant markets. We'll venture out and buy food "à la parisienne."

We'll have choices on at least 7 tastings (depending on availability/opening times) on our visit: sweet (including 2 of the best bakeries listed on Paris' best in 2019) or salty, we'll be sure to delight your tastebuds! Follow me as we discover all kinds of flavors in the food stalls and as well as at iconic local food shops nearby owned by the friendliest people in Paris.

Kids of all ages are welcome! They love all our tastings. Our group will be of maximum 7 guests (if more than 8 people sign up, a second group will be made so the experience will stay intimate).

In the morning visit (9h30-12h), the open market is in full swing and super busy! we also visit the covered market at the Aligre.

In the afternoon, the open market is over, covered market still on!. All tastings are still available!

Silvia was truly amazing! She was passionate and full of life. The tour was a bit of everything, amazing cheese, meats, the market d’Aligre, the little shops, the wine, a bit of history background!! Was a perfect combination of everything. It is the perfect length and amount of food (do not eat prior). Silvia went above and beyond! Highly recommend :)

Silvia’s tour is wonderful and the perfect way to spend a morning in Paris. Thanks to her, my husband and I got to taste the best pain au chocolat AND coffee in Paris. Silvia is very knowledgeable and we got a sense of how important the market has been historically throughout the tour. Furthermore, she has an innate ability to make everyone feel welcome and is friends with so many people in the area that it really added a personal touch to the experience. Highly recommend it!

What an amazing food tour of a lesser known area of Paris! Silvia is wonderful! She is super personable and knowledge about the local food scene- plus she is friends with everyone! Taking the tour feels like walking around the city with an old friend. The food, of course, is to die for and plentiful- definitely bring your appetite! This is a must do in Paris.
