What you'll do
What could be more Parisian than exploring a French open-air market? We know this can be a bit intimidating, so come along with us to learn all about the French market culture. You'll see how the French do their grocery shopping, learn about their obsession with fresh seasonal products, and have the opportunity to purchase some delicious market finds like cheese, pastries, fresh fruit, cured meats, or gorgeous flowers. We can help give you some basic phrases for ordering and interacting with the market vendors, alongside some tricks for finding the freshest bread, pastries, wine, and seasonal French delicacies. We want to help you navigate the maze of these beautiful and fun open-air markets, learn about their importance within French culture, and of course take your newfound skills to markets all over the city for the rest of your trip! Picnics, here you come!
