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?

      I'm a Brit. I'm also a closet Frenchman.  To cap it all, I'm happily retired in Bangkok, the city of a street food culture that's second to none. The Thais are healthy and slim. I'm just this side of alive and far from slim. Lockdown has me fantasizing about my days working in London, Paris and New York, an existence, if one could call it that, revolving around gastronomy of one kind or another. They paid me, not so very much as it happens, to do what I enjoy doing most in life. We all get to do it, but I was one of a fortunate few who made it his metier. Well all that's in the past now, but I still dream of my time in Paris when lunch was a tad short of 2-hours, little-known local bistros remained affordable until the day they were discovered by La Bible (Michelin Guide) and the students were revolting - this was the summer of '68, for heaven's sake. Someone should open bistro here in Bangkok with a table d'hote of Soupe a l'Oignon gratinee, Blanquette de Veau, a stinky Epoisses and Tarte Tatin to finsih with creme fraiche. Ah, it's back to lockdown and pad Thai.

      After batting about .500 with my previous approach to macarons, I came across Pierre Herme's base recipe online.  After two flawless batches of macarons, I've been re-energized to continue to work at mastering them.  Specifically, I want to try more of his recipes.  My conundrum is that he has, as far as I can tell, two macaron cookbooks and I don't know which one I should get.  I can't tell if one is just an updated version of the other or a reissue or what the differences really are.  I was hoping somebody had some insight.  I have searched online and haven't seen both books referenced in the same context or contrasted at all.
       
      This one appears to be older.

       
      And this one appears to be the newer of the two.

       
      Any insight would be helpful.
       
      Thanks,

      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.
