What you'll do

Ideal for foodies looking for a special window into the French markets and food culture .Meet me at the market where I've shopped for 25 years and I've been bringing guests since 2014. You’ll love the buzz, smells, and sounds—but most of all the people. They’re like family, and the market is their home. You’ll get a true feel for this community by meeting the stall-keepers, tasting their wares, and asking about their passion. The food of a country is part of its DNA and when you visit a market you enter into it's food soul .All tastings will be at the actual stalls, which isn't an experience for your average market-goer. This is a very intimate experience , a small group of 6 max .Put yourself in the hands of an expert and enjoy a tailor-made experience-Perfect for omnivores and true foodies.I am the ORIGINAL airbnb host at this market , unfortunatly others have COPIED .
Other things to note
Please bring curiosity and an appetite—eat a light breakfast beforehand. bring a bag if you'd like to buy goodies to take home! Please inform me of any dietary requirements so I may plan ahead. Not the best for Vegans

I'm the quintessential Parisian foodie and am serious about eating locally and responsibly. I am a food journalist and teach gastronomy all over France and internationally. I always have great restaurant recommendations at the tip of my tongue. Food is my inspiration, and I love sharing .I started taking people to the Aligre market in 2013 and have since been copied multiple times
I don't do this tour everyday as The market can get very busy on weekends and the shopkeepers don’t have time for us.I love and respect the energy of the market and the people that work there.
The group is small and intimate maxi 6 people .Ideal for foodies looking for a special window into the French markets and food culture.
EAT- DISCOVER -LOVE-my motto
FYI- I'M FULLY VACCINATED

The Aligre Market is bustling with locals and the perfect place to find premium-quality French specialties. The market is ONLY IN THE MORNING,sincerely the best time to visit is during the week, weekends get very packed and the shopkeepers don’t have time to share with us

    Wow, what a fantastic time with Natasha. She is very knowledgable, personable and helpful. We have done many tours and this is one of the top! As a group of non-native speakers, it was easy to understand, ask questions and feel included. Her tips and tricks, many friends at the market, and selection of snacks and tastings did not disappoint. We left feeling energized and excited to try more, new things and even felt more comfortable ordering some of these delicacies, with more of an appreciation for the art and precision of France and its food culture. Truly noteworthy. If you do one market or food tour, do this one!

    Don't waste your time looking at other tours. Pick this tour. I have been on several in different city's and even in Paris, this was hands down the best experience. From fantastic shops, knowledge and of course the food we tried, it really made for the best tour I have ever had. The only down side is I didn't do this earlier during my trip. It was not just where we went but being told by a person who knows where to go, where to go for dinner and lunch. I mentioned that I have been ruined, now I will always compare other to the best. Thank you for your time and the sharing.

    The market tour was beautiful and full of information but what truly made it special was our host, Natasha, she knew everyone at the market, the way she spoke about food and wine, the trends, the French passion for seasonal and regional food, she is a true expert and you can see her passion.

    Absolutely amazing experience. Eating in France will never be the same. Natasha is an amazing and passionate guide that instills in you a sense of wonder and appreciation for food. I never do tours normally, but I read the reviews and couldn’t say no. So worth it, a must for anyone arriving in Paris.

    Natasha was very kind and fun during the whole experience. It is very clear how knowledgeable she is in everything regarding food and culinary experiences. We learned a lot and left with our bellies full! Would recommend to anyone traveling to Paris.
