The food scene in Paris has changed dramatically since 2006, 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.

Great ideas for food and shopping

I was wondering how, for 6 weeks in Paris, I would eat. My friend said "you won't starve" and after reading all the options for fresh food markets, it's very true. Comprehensive list gives lots of ideas for shopping (both grocery and not) to buy and make things at home -- not just to enjoy the markets and the fresh foods of France, but also will save some money!

This is a fun, practical guide for anyone visiting Paris who enjoys food and shopping. The book covers more than 120 markets—a combination of food markets as well as flea, antique, crafts, books, vintage postcards, etc. It contains all of the essential information one needs to plan the outings to markets and make the most of one's stay in Paris. It also includes restaurant recommendations and colorful photos.

I was glad to find this book and learn about the numerous market places in Paris. i am planning a trip and one of my favorite things to do is treasure hunt. This book has given me the framework to structure my stay and make sure I hit the types of markets that I believe I will enjoy the best. The format is done my areas of the city with restaurant recommendations to each area as well. Pleasurable, fast read that was very worthwhile.

Friendly, informative prose that gives just enough historical detail to pique curiosity and interest. Beautiful photos that capture the color and charm of the products and locations. A small format that slips easily into a backpack, yet heft enough to not get lost among the souvenirs. I'll definitely be bringing it on my next trip to Paris!
