What you'll do

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, bear in mind that in August some of the tastings won't be available as locations have their annual closing) 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).

We'll visit the open market that is in full swing and super busy! we will also visit the covered market at the Aligre.

Silvia felt like a life-long friend we hadn’t seen in a while- she showed us all of her favorite spots in the neighborhood, and made it feel like we were part of it too. A worth-while experience if you are interested in good food and the community that comes along with it!

We had a great time with Silvia on our food tour. She made us feel comfortable as soon as we met. It was clear that she was keen to adapt the tour to our tastes. We found her engaging and easy-going. At the end of the tour she recommend helpful suggestions to try another time. Really fun thing to do on our last day in Paris! Would love to do another tour with Silvia and would highly recommend her.

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!
