Visit the Village Saint Martin on a Sustainable Food Tour
Parisian food is evocative, decadent, indulgent. On this private tour, your guide will show you that all of those things can remain true while also being sustainable and organic. On your private organic food tour, you will:
- Visit the Village Saint Martin with a private guide.
- Immerse yourself in the buzzing energy of the district experiencing a palpable revival.
- Taste organic veggie juices so fresh that you’ll feel your body thank you.
- Enjoy a spectacular coffee from the best coffee roaster in France (yes – actually voted the best roaster).
- Finish your tour with a bite of cheese and a glass of natural wine, while sitting along the Saint-Martin canal.
The Canal Saint-Martin has always attracted eclectic groups of visitors and Parisians, combining a quaint, off-the-beaten-path quality with the perfect amount of postcard Paris charm. The neighbourhood has tempted foodies to this part of Paris for the past few decades, but a recent boom in new shops, cafés and galleries surrounding the canal has made this area –casually referred to as Village Saint-Martin –not just a place to go for lunch or dinner, but a destination to spend the day.
In constant transformation, the block connecting the canal and the Faubourg Saint-Martin is full of new shops replacing textile wholesalers with organic and green initiatives. Though some of the district’s old guard regret that the Village Saint Martin has become a bobo hub, many are celebrating the way the younger crowd has given new life and funky vibes to this once-working class neighbourhood. The newcomers have brought social-impact businesses with fantastic design, all while maintaining the classic East Parisian charm that never faded away.
On your tour, your guide will take you through the small streets of the Village Saint Martin to discover the hidden treasures promoting organic ingredients and greener life, and empowering people with an artistic approach. An occasion for you to have a sip of organic vegetable juices before discovering that yes, gluten-free pastry can taste good, as well as superfood vegan cuisine. Though this new-vibe tour is showing the way Parisians continue to reinvent the city, your tour will end in a quintessentially Parisian way: with ambling conversation of shared cheese and a glass of natural wine.
