About
Enjoy a private tour of the Marche D’Aligre, a true local's market in Paris that is nearly 200 years old. At a cafe, Laurence will introduce you to the history of the market and agenda for the day. Learn about the different cheeses you might find in the market and some of the best French wines to try. Begin your tour through the covered section of the market, starting with the meat and charcuterie stalls. Continue on to the cheese stalls, and then the fish section of the market, where Paris’s freshest fish and seafood can be found. Finish your tour of the market with a trip through the vegetable portion of the market where Laurence will purchase a few seasonal fruits and vegetables for you to try that you might not have encountered before (for example a seasonal persimmon or blue radish, a lovely sweet and mild radish). After your tour, visit a local wine bar where you will sit and enjoy an assortment of cheeses, charcuterie and two glasses of local wine with your local host.

Delightful morning/afternoon learning about regional French food and wines and discussing all things related to food, France, and travel. Walked through market and tasted food not easily available in American grocery stores (cheeses, meats, and some fruits too). Loved getting a local perspective on food and Laurence was kind, patient, and gracious with all our questions/conversations. Absolutely loved it!!

This was our favorite experience while we were visiting Paris. Our guide was fabulous. She made us feel very welcome, showed us the best market, and helped us experience Paris like a local! She was knowledgeable in the local wine and cheese and spent time sharing customary shopping and eating habits of the French. I highly recommend this experience with Laurence.

We had a great time with Laurence exploring the Marche D’Aligre market! First we met with her at a wonderful cafe where we had coffee and discussed the history and details of the market. Then we explored the market and Laurence impressed us very much with her in depth knowledge. We were traveling with our 15-month-old which isn't always easy in Paris but Laurence was very understanding and flexible. This experience was a wonderful authentic way to end our trip and we would highly recommend it!
