Aligre Market
Having completed her law studies in the area and then married a local, Edith has strong links to Bastille. She knows all the market sellers personally (Pascal the volailler and Rémi and Sybille who sell excellent fruit) and has been shopping here every Sunday for 15 years. An amateur historian, Edith's tour brings together food and history through her infectious enthusiasm and '50s get up. The visit ends at Le Baron Rouge with wine and oysters.

Enfants Rouges Market
After working in luxury hotels, Alice was inspired to set up her business by a TV show. Now running vegan food tours, she is a regular at the Marché des Enfants Rouges, Paris' oldest indoor market. She loves being able to buy produce and eat at the market’s different food stalls, including a favourite, Le Stand which sells veggie bowls and pastries.

Saint Germain Market
Award-winning Torontonian food guide, Lisa has a soft spot for the Marché Saint Germain because of its intimacy, the friendliness of its sellers and the quality of the produce. Since moving to Paris in 2012 she's introduced visitors to the likes of Mr. Caillaud the friendly butcher and the Sanders fromagerie which has been family-run for 30 years.
