Paris Street Markets: Learn to Shop Like a Top Chef

Paris revolves around cuisine in all its forms, and there is no place where that is more evident than in one of its open-air markets, where the city’s food culture is the richest. The finesse of French cuisine rests on the quality of ingredients, their variety, and their freshness. With Susan Herrmann Loomis, a chef and author of 13 cookbooks at your side, you will find oysters from Brittany, fat Charolais steaks from Burgundy, every type of apple and pear from Normandy, and artichokes, purple garlic, fat and juicy tomatoes from Provence. You will enter into the lively atmosphere, learn about the produce and where it comes from, and be tempted to taste everything — from olive-scented Tunisian flat breads hot off the grill to tiny radishes, fat black cherries, and strawberries so juicy their perfume enfolds you. The open-air markets of Paris are its soul, its breath, its direct link to France’s fine, regional produce. No matter the season, you will find the best the country offers. “Paris without its markets wouldn’t be Paris at all,” says Susan. “They’re the map of the seasons and the regions, and you learn just about everything you need to know, culinarily speaking, from this journey into a Parisian market.” The Avenue de Saxe market on the left bank offers the ideal setting for Susan to accompany you, with a chance to sample and pair flavors afterward.
