Outdoor Market Tour
120 € per person
Come to a famous outdoor market in the heart of Paris, where I will guide you through the interesting parts of the market, talk about the different customary foods, and purchase everything we need for a wonderful meal, then prepare it at my home and dine together.
I will meet you at the nearby metro station, Place des Ternes, (Metro Line 2) where we will take a short 5 minute walk to the famous Rue Poncelet, where there is a wonderful outdoor market. We will buy lettuce, tomatoes, fresh basil, and onion at the green grocer, cheese at the famous Alléose Fromagerie, wine at an independant wine shop, then head to Divay, famous for their Foie Gras, and buy a freshly roasted chicken and their delicious potatoes. Additionally, we will have a tasting of France's famous Agen prunes. On the way to my home, where we will prepare our meal, we will also stop at a top ranked Boulangerie Thierry Meunier, where you will choose a pastry of your choice and a fresh baguette.
At my home you can help in the washing of the produce, making the salad dressing, cutting of the onions and tomatoes, plating the cheese, cutting the chicken up, etc. We will then sit down at a lovely table and enjoy the fruits of our labor, so to speak. I will provide coffee or tea, and sparkling or still water, as well. You can ask me about Paris, what to do, what to see, restaurants, how living here is different that being a tourist, or whatever is on your mind. The experience will last for approximately 3 hours, and don't worry.... there is no clean up for you! It is all taken care of!
