Foodie with 36 hours in Paris

Hi,

I’m going to be in Paris for 36 hours this weekend and I’m looking for suggesting of things to do. I have been a few times before, so not looking for the main tourist sights.

I’m a foodie and love all things food and wine related! Is there anything similar to Borough Market in London?

I will be looking for a couple of great places for lunch (dinner is already booked). Really looking for ‘real’ Paris, rather than super-hip. We will be staying at the Intercontinental on Ave Marceau and more than happy to travel and we like all types of food.

Any suggestions gratefully appreciated.

Chris

    Google John Talbott Paris and read a few pages of his thoughts. You'll find something terrific!

      Nothing quite like Borough Market, but the Marche des Enfants Rouges (3rd arrondissement), on a Saturday, is worth checking out -- a traditional but very small outdoor covered market, with lots of small food stands and a few sit-down but outdoor restaurants. Might be tricky given the current weather but if you bundle up it could be fun.
