Publisher Comments:

The food scene in Paris has changed dramatically since 2007,

when Markets of Paris was first published. Yes, the same markets

are held in the same locales as always—literally, for centuries—

but many have undergone a remarkable transformation led by

a young generation of purveyors focused, even more than their

predecessors, on local and organic (“bio”) produce. Markets

of Paris, 2nd Edition revisits the entire market scene in Paris.

The new edition is even “greener” with updated entries that

emphasize the three main marchés biologiques and explore new

trends throughout all the markets.

Other updates focus on the most interesting vendors and most

unique and enticing offerings to be found at each locale. New

features include listings of cooking classes and guided tours of

the markets that show you how and what to buy, and how to

cook, the ingredients purchased. The authors also add picnic

places and suggested picnic menus using items from nearby

markets. In keeping with growing interest in knowing where

food comes from, the authors include profiles and photos of

farmers and other artisanal suppliers behind the best food stalls

and restaurants. Restaurant recommendations are updated

to emphasize those that are noted for using fresh, local, seasonal,

and organic ingredients, or that are otherwise unique

and foodie-friendly. A “what’s in season when” listing has been

added that highlights what’s most plentiful or fresh throughout

the year.

The daily / weekly markets in Paris are SUCH a part of the day to day culture in Paris. I love going to them and watching and participating in the market. This book gives information on the markets that are mentioned in guidebooks along with many that are not. a great guide for people watchers like me!
