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.
