Tour description provided by Viator

Feel like a local on this delicious food walking tour of Paris’ bustling Marché d’Aligre market located in the less touristy 12th district. Follow your guide to the best finds in this popular market, including tasty cheese and chocolate shops and a seeds shop that’s been in business since the 19th century. Chat with the shopkeepers and indulge in a variety of cheese, chocolate and wine tastings on this fun morning tour.

This small-group tour is limited to eight people for a more intimate, relaxed experience.

Meet your guide at 10am in central Paris and walk through the lovely 12th district, often overlooked by tourists but popular with Parisians. Your local guide will lead you to the Marché d'Aligre, a lively indoor/outdoor market selling everything from old gramophones to pieces of crockery to artisan jams. With the help of your local guide, discover wonderful gourmet shops at the Marché d'Aligre where you can talk with the vendors about their passions and ask all the questions you like. Visit several cheese and chocolate shops and La Graineterie, a seeds shop that opened in 1895 and today sells specialty flours, spices, teas and classic candies along with seeds. Enjoy tastings of cheese, wine and chocolate, all of which are included in the price of your tour. At the end of your 2-hour food walking tour, your guide will be happy to give you recommendations for further exploration so you can continue to wander the Marché d'Aligre on your own, seeking out tasty treats alongside the locals.
