My Secret Beaubourg Guide : Paris Food Tour

New Friends at our table often ask us where to shop for food in Paris, so we have created My Secret Beaubourg Guide, a tour which focuses on the small neighbourhood quarter, known locally as Beaubourg. 

The Marais is one of the most visited parts of Paris, famous for its art galleries, boutiques, restaurants and gay bars, but the small adjoining neighbourhood which contains the Centre Pompidou, is also home to many gourmet gems and together we will shop like locals, visiting  various producers, artisans and regional specialists.

Our compact tour is followed by dejeuner du marché, a simple delicious lunch back in our apartment, eating the products we have bought. You can find out more about the French approach to food, wine and 'terroir' over a glass of natural wine. After coffee you will take away a list of our favourite food suppliers, markets, boulangeries and cavistes across Paris.

The group meets for coffee promptly at 10.30am. starting our tour at 10.45 and at each stop we point foods of note,  taste samples and talk to some of the artisans.  The tour does not cover a large area and will be completed in 1 1/2 hours after which we go 'home' for lunch. Please be assured that this is not a selling tour and there is no pressure at all for you to buy any of the produce we see, but of course you are free to make personal purchases if you wish.

The cost of the guided tour is 100 euro per person, to include morning coffee, the food tour,  lunch with natural wine and our Paris food list to take home. The tour lasts 3 ½ hours in total.

You can book as an individual or as a group: Each tour will comprise a minimum of 4 and maximum of 6 people.

  Private groups can also be accommodated. If the dates listed here do not suit please enquire with dates you would like.
