We will meet in a nice French cafe near Aligre market - one of the most typical vibrant and old food markets in Paris. I will introduce you to the different French cheese, wine & gastronomy regions and I will explain you their specificities. Afterwards we will stroll in the indoor market to discover French specialties such as regional cheeses, unique charcuteries and seafood. In the open air part, we will learn how to select seasonal fruits and vegetables. Finally, we will be immersed in a casual wine bar atmosphere for a sit-down lunch; we will taste several cheeses, charcuteries and two different French wines.
Since my childhood, I am used to weekly go to the market and eat authentic regional food at home. Later, I started to appreciate various and super wines. My interest for wine developped and I was recently certified WSET (Wine & Spirit Education Trust) Level 1. This is why I started one year ago my market tour adventure with Airbnb. I enjoy very much meeting with travelers and sharing with them some pieces of the French culture ; according to my travelers’ reviews, so do they !

The Rendez-Vous, the market tour and the lunch will all take place in the Aligre market area. The market is ideally located at a walking distance from Bastille square, symbolic of the French revolution!

I keep the groups small for a better quality experience. But don't hesitate to ask me a quote for a private tour or if your group is larger. For solo travelers: Before booking, please contact me, thanks a lot!
