Full description
Explore one of the most popular markets in Paris, and experience the daily life of a district that’s off the tourist track. Taste some of the freshest food products in the city during this 2-hour tour with a local guide. Each of the shopkeepers you meet will spend some time with you sharing their passion and offering you samples of their products to taste. The market’s location in the 12th arrondissement is not in a popular tourist area, but the Marché d’Aligre is one of the most popular markets for Parisians. Experience 3 markets in one. There are indoor and outdoor food markets, as well as a flea market with all sorts of treasures on offer, from old gramophones to odd bits of crockery. See the incredible seeds merchant that has been part of the market scene since 1895, the wide variety of cheese and chocolate shops, and more. Tastings are included!

Very informative and fun. David was an excellent guide.

Great tour with an excellent guide and food. The cheeses were a revelation.

April 7, 2017

The guide was friendly, punctual and personable, but she had practically no background knowledge or relevant information about the market, the products, the district or similar. The small restaurant with the cheese and wine tasting was nice, we had fresh baguette ourselves concerned as the bread was not good. The guide was also unable to provide any information about the wines.

Excellent experience all around. Our guide Monika was fantastic, and very knowledgeable. We tried lots of interesting items and weren't overwhelmed. Even the kids were engaged (they loved eating bugs!). Great tour
