Any good stores near Metro Poissoniere?

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I will be in Paris at the end of November for a week and am renting a place near Metro Poissoniere (9th). I was curious if there were any good markets, bakeries, or food stores in the vicinity.

Merci!

Cheers! :cool:

Well there are plenty of good food stores and markets all over Paris... My advice would be to just browse and discover.

Okay, there's the very interesting Turkish halal butchers and grocers on rue du Faubourg-Saint-Denis (Southern section), but I'm not sure that's what you're looking for.

Well, I usually stay over by Places Blance/Clicy, so this is a new part of town for me and I wanted to get some idea of what was available in the area. I'll still go to the open markets, but was hoping there were some interesting stores near the place I was staying at.

That said, Turkish Halal butchers could be good too. I am Franco-Lebanese, so similar ingredients.

I do not live close to that neighborhood so when I am there, I do raid those Turkish stores. They have good lamb but besides that it is a pleasure to browse through the grains, pulses, dried fruit, jams, spices, etc.

You have two covered markets nearby. One on rue du Château-d'Eau (n°31/33) and the marché Saint-Quentin on bd de Magenta, kind of expensive but quite interesting.

There is a street market near métro Poissonnière, bordered with nice shops — quite interesting but I forget where it is precisely. You'll find it easily.

OK, Rue des Martyrs had some interesting stuff, but the covered markets at St Quentin and Chateau d'Eau were so-so, especially during the week. Anyway, I spent most of my time at business dinners, so I really didn't get to cook much. I found some gorgeous chanterelles at Chateau D'Eau and gave them to a friend, who cooked them the night after I returned to the US and said they were fantastic.

What a tease. :blink:

Sorriest I discovered this thread late.

Near you

- Cisternino, 46 Rue du Faubourg Poissonnière, Paris's best épicerie italienne.

- Ferme St Hubert, 36 Rue de Rochechouart. Great cheese and dairy products. Daniel Rose steered me there.

- Aurore Capucine. 3 Rue de Rochechouart. Wonderful inventive pastries, often using flowers.

- Heratchian on 6 Rue Lamartine. Great middle-eastern spice store.

On rue des Martyrs, besides

- the presidential baggette at Delmontel, I like

- Aux Papilles gourmands for the charcuteries and

- Seurre for pastries. And of course

- Poissonnerie Bleue, 5 rue des martyrs.

If you are still in Paris on Friday, don't miss the weekly market on Place d'Anvers in the afternoon. People come from the suburbs to queue up for the cheeses of the gentleman in wheelchair at the north end of the market.

Forgive me for this indirect showoff. Here is an article by my husband about the market:

Off topic: last weekend was the Marché des producteurs de pays, with wonderful food producers from the southwest, all converging on the picturesque Village St Paul in the Marais. A quantity of foie gras and aiguillettes de canard later, I thought that was the kind of event I would love to put on the France/Paris calendar. But o I tried. The forum tells us to go list these things on the calendar, then steers us to a page where the word "calendar" is nowhere to be found. What's that about?

      Can anyone give me idea how to make homemade french bread in wood fired oven?

      There are two local grocery stores here who I'd like to try to sell chocolate to but they have policies forbidding GMO soy,  Soy lecithin is allowed only if organic or certified non-GMO. 
       
      I use a lot of Felchlin, some Valrhona, a little Cacao Barry. The only mention of GMOs I've found from Felchlin is this note in a brochure: GMO absence:  Felchlin fulfills current legislative requirements regarding GMO absence.  All Felchlin products comply with the Swiss Regulation and the European Council Regulation related to genetically modified organisms in food and feed.
       
      Does anybody know what those requirements are?  Is anything European going to be GMO-free?  Or labeled above some %?

      Has anyone come across a digital version of Practical Professional Cookery (revised 3rd edition) H.L. Cracknell & R.J. Kaufmann.
      I am using this as the textbook for my culinary arts students and a digital version would come in very handy for creating notes and handouts.

      I dont believe that any English translation of Carêmes works exist. An incomplete version was published in 1842 (I think) but even the that version seems lackluster for the few recipes it does cover. I think it's time the world looks to its past, but I don't speak great French and it's a huge task to undertake. I hopefully plan on publishing this work and anyone who helps me will get a very fair cut, and if we decide not to publish it, I'll put it out on the internet for free. I'm working in Google docs so we can collaborate. I'm first cataloging the index to cross reference the pre-existing incomplete English version to give us a reference of what yet needs to be done, and from there we will go down the list of recipies and Translate them one by one. Simple google translate goes only so far, as it is 1700s French culinary terms and phrases being used. I'd like to preserve as much of Carêmes beautiful and flowery language as possible. Who's with me?

      I have seen referenced in several places on the internet, including Wikipedia, a stat about escoffier recommending 40 minutes for scrambled eggs in a Bain Marie. I cant find where this number is from. On Wikipedia it refers to the book I currently own, the "Escoffier le guide culinaire" with forward by Heston Blumenthal by h. L. Cracknell...specificly page 157 for the 40 minute cooking time of scrambled eggs but it's not in my book on that page! Even tho there is the recipe for scrambled eggs on that page... I've seen the 1903 first edition online.. And it's not in there either.... Where is this number from?? Id like to know in case there is some even more complete book or something out there that I'm missing. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.
