About this activity
Your tour of the most distinguished and picturesque market in Paris—Marché d'Aligre—begins as you meet your guide at a location nearby.
A stone's throw from Opéra Bastille, Aligre Market sits in the 12th arrondissement on the Rive Droite (Right Bank) of Paris. Every morning (except Mondays), its stallholders welcome you right on the streets of Aligre Square. With your guide, see how the market is actually two markets with two charming atmospheres—under the covered market Beauvau, around the old fountain, you'll find a French and Italian delicatessen, fresh fish, poultry, dairy, and cut flowers. In the outdoor section, discover a curious mix of shouting merchants des four saisons (fruits sellers) and antique dealers, as this is half a food market and half a flea market.
Explore with your guide to see more food stalls and delis, and perhaps enjoy a wine tasting with cheese on an old wine barrel. You might mingle with locals and sip hot chocolate or hot wine during the winter, or enjoy an aperitif in the summer. However your guide introduces you to the market, you have the chance to feel like a local by chatting with shopkeepers and tasting local cheeses, cured meats, and chocolate. Learn about the history of this very special market, and, of course, sample fresh food from the stalls.

This was amazing! Our tour guide, Stefan, was incredible...so passionate about food and so knowledgeable. We sampled delicious bread, cheese, meats, pastries and wine! It was one of the highlights of 5 days in Paris.
