Rebekah's Farmers Markets Tours in Paris

Rebekah's Farmers Markets Tours in Paris

Three or four days a week Rebekah offers a two-hour tour of one of the best farmers markets in Paris.

Rebekah explains (in English) the intricacies of the rigorous and fascinating French system for rating and classifying foods. This is called the AOC system, or Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (Controlled Designation of Origin), and it works to ensure the high quality of the country's food.

Learn how the French marchés (markets) system works, how to pick the best produce, where the fish in the market comes from, and how to shop for and prepare some traditional French dishes. You'll come away feeling like you've been shopping at Parisian marchés all your life.
