Taste of the Aligre Market Neighborhood

Morning in the Aligre Market Neighborhood

About this neighborhood: A few blocks east of the Bastille, the Aligre market and its surrounding streets mark one of the city’s most bustling neighborhoods. The area hosts a huge number of celebrated chefs and wine bars catering to locals who are food-obsessed but also younger and funkier than you’ll find in Saint-Germain. A great option for those who want to experience something a little off the beaten track.

What we’ll taste: We’ll start the day with breakfast pastries before tasting our way through the the celebrated Marché d’Aligre. We’ll taste some specially aged French cheeses, sample some artisanal charcuterie, and explore a wide range of seasonal ingredients and regional products. We’ll finish with sweets made by one of the city’s most celebrated pâtissiers.
