There is no better way to experience living like the French than to go to the market.  There you find  warmth and personality,  the best local and seasonal produce, meats, seafood, and so much more. 

Susan will guide you through a Parisian market, revealing its secrets and inspiring you to bring France into your kitchen!

The markets of Paris reveal a hidden world that speaks of France, cooking, gastronomy, seasons, and culture.  Susan invites you to join her for an unforgettable excursion into a Parisian market.  You will meet for an early morning coffee, then walk through the market as she explains what you’re seeing, greeting vendors and giving you an insider’s look into the market world.  You will pick up some seasonal delicacies, then return to the café to enjoy them after the market.

Market Visits are 285€/per person.  They are planned for from two to six people.  A visit begins at 9:00 and lasts until 11:00.  Payment, which reserves your spot, is non-refundable.  In the rare event that a visit has just one person, we will work with you to find another date that fits your schedule or refund you in full.

I didn't know I could learn so much from a visit to the market.
