What you'll do

Ideal for foodies looking for a special window into the French markets and food culture .Meet me at the market where I've shopped for 25 years and I've been bringing guests since 2014. You’ll love the buzz, smells, and sounds—but most of all the people. They’re like family, and the market is their home. You’ll get a true feel for this community by meeting the stall-keepers, tasting their wares, and asking about their passion. The food of a country is part of its DNA and when you visit a market you enter into it's food soul .All tastings will be at the actual stalls, which isn't an experience for your average market-goer. This is a very intimate experience , a small group of 6 max .Put yourself in the hands of an expert and enjoy a tailor-made experience-Perfect for omnivores and true foodies.I am the ORIGINAL airbnb host at this market , unfortunatly others have COPIED .
Other things to note
Please bring curiosity and an appetite—eat a light breakfast beforehand. bring a bag if you'd like to buy goodies to take home! Please inform me of any dietary requirements so I may plan ahead. Not the best for Vegans

I'm the quintessential Parisian foodie and am serious about eating locally and responsibly. I am a food journalist and teach gastronomy all over France and internationally. I always have great restaurant recommendations at the tip of my tongue. Food is my inspiration, and I love sharing .I started taking people to the Aligre market in 2013 and have since been copied multiple times
I don't do this tour everyday as The market can get very busy on weekends and the shopkeepers don’t have time for us.I love and respect the energy of the market and the people that work there.
The group is small and intimate maxi 6 people .Ideal for foodies looking for a special window into the French markets and food culture.

Where you'll be

The Aligre Market is bustling with locals and the perfect place to find premium-quality French specialties. The market is ONLY IN THE MORNING,sincerely the best time to visit is during the week, weekends get very packed and the shopkeepers don’t have time to share with us

Rated 4.98 out of 5 from 527 reviews.

Natasha is an extraordinary hostess, incredibly knowledgeable and very easy to understand. We will always do her tour every time we are in Paris from now on. This was THE best thing we’ve done in Paris. Do not miss out!

Natasha’s tour is a gem we found on this trip. She is so thoughtful and organized. The experience was amazing and really offered a glimpse into Parisian everyday life instead of the usual tourist checklist. I highly recommend it to everyone - be it first timers or experienced ones. We’ve been to Paris a few times and we learned so much on this tour.

Natasha is a professional & humorous host and I and 4 other guests really enjoyed the tour. She has sound pride on her mother land's food and epicure culture and respect on all the professionals in market. Everyone in market said hi to her and I felt I was in the community even though I just arrived in Paris. And the flavour of oyster, butter, cheese and meats? Far beyond my expectation. Thanks!

Natasha was a superb hostess, I thoroughly enjoyed her tour! I learned a lot about French food, quality standards, how to shop like the French do - emphasis on fresh, local and sustainable. The tastings were exquisite, especially the oyster in season! Merci beaucoup, Natasha!
