Customised 3-hour morning tour to explore food markets like a true Parisian!

The pleasure of eating fine cuisine is a big part of French culture. For this reason, Parisians prefer shopping for food at local markets, with stalls offering produce such as regional cheeses, fish and other seafood, meat, poultry, fresh fruits and vegetables. You should not miss this unique opportunity to enjoy this bustling atmosphere as it's a must-do when in Paris. Each Parisian neighbourhood has not only its own food market streets but also its open-air markets. In total, 69 of them are spread over the 20 Parisian districts, not to mention an additional 13 covered markets. If you feel like it, you will be most welcome to taste some local delicatessen.

This tour can be done every morning except Mondays.


The itinerary will include:
- one market street
- one open-air market
- the oldest market in Paris

This tour can be done every morning except Mondays.

A Recent Review of this tour

Anne was superb. She was well prepared, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, responsible, and very committed to making our visit to Paris a truly memorable one. Our son will be coming to Paris this September and we'll be sure he asks for Anne to guide him through the streets and markets of Paris.
