    Let expert, Allison Zinder, guide you through one of Paris's most vibrant and authentic outdoor markets, Marche dAligre, near the Bastille. An inspiring tour where youll learn to shop like a local for local produce, cheese, meats and more – and inspire your next cooking project. The visit includes a visit to a local bakery for a charcuterie tasting in the Marché Beauvau, and a cheese tasting of 5 to 6 seasonal cheeses.  You will wrap up your time together with a celebratory glass of wine.

    The Marché d'Aligre is actually three markets: the Outdoor Marche d'Aligre, full of vibrant seasonal produce; the Covered Marché Beauvau, an architectural beauty that consists of three halls filled with a variety of food stalls, cheese shops, butchers shops and more; and, at the center of the quaint plaza is the Outdoor Antiques & Flea Market.
