About this neighborhood: Throughout its long history, the Marais has been home to successive waves of aristocrats, immigrants, gay men, artists, and hipsters. The quarter is brimming with art galleries, independent fashion boutiques, and cool new eateries.
What we'll taste: After visiting one of the most bustling outdoor markets in Paris, we'll taste our way through a number of small and special artisanal food shops. Depending on the day, we may taste the legendary loaves of Poilâne or the prize-winning croissants of a charming young baker. We'll sample rare cheeses, small-production French olive oils, and some of the most incredible chocolate and pastry produced in Paris (and therefore the world).
