    DescriptionThe 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. "Markets""of Paris, 2nd Edition "revisits and updates the entire market scene in Paris, with 12 new entries and 10 new sidebars, including Virtual Markets and Market Streets, Markets Open on Sunday, Artisan Bakers, Getting Along in the Food Markets, Brocante Fairs, and more. One of them, Cooking in Paris, gives information about lessons and workshops offered in home kitchens, bakeries, restaurants, and even wine stores. Updates focus on the most interesting vendors and most unique and enticing offerings to be found at each locale, including prepared food that can be eaten on the spot. In keeping with growing interest in knowing where food comes from, the authors include profiles and photos of farmers and other artisanal suppliers behind the best food stalls. One of the biggest changes in the Paris market scene in recent years has been the spike of interest in organic, reflected in the popularity of the Raspail organic market. At one time a fringe offshoot of the regular Raspail market, this Sunday market has fully come into its own. It attracts a large and loyal clientele; of three organic markets in the city, it's certainly the largest and most widely known. Often it's referred to as "Le Marche Bio," and many claim it's the creme de la creme of all Paris's markets. Restaurant listings have been updated, too, with 15 new additions that have been chosen because of their new-generation chefs' approach to fresh ingredients or their proximity to featured markets. A new section titled If You Have Limited Time directs the visitor to the most interesting markets near his or her accommodations. Another section, Practical Suggestions, addresses common questions such where to get local currency, which map of Paris is the best and most convenient, and business hours for different kinds of shops, stalls, and restaurants. Finally, the book has been reorganized by arrondissement to be more user friendly, and it has a brand-new look with all new photos and a refreshed, modernized design.

    Review quote
    ""Markets of Paris" is going to be in my luggage on my next trip to Paris. It is the best book to use if you are a 'foodie' but are not a local. The foot work is done, so you can just pick and choose your interests, then take the Metro and enjoy the treasures of Paris. "-- Marc Bauer, Master Chef, French Culinary Institute "This is the book I wish I had had with me on my last visit to Paris. I'll just have to return to Paris armed with this guide. What a great lens to view this magnificent city through - plus I love the way it just slips into a pocket." -- Deborah Madison, author of "Local Flavors and Seasonal Fruit Desserts " "While most general travel guides list the major Parisian markets, like the famous Marche aux Fleurs and Marche aux Puces de Clignancourt, this guide details all the markets in the city selling food, antiques, books, crafts, and more. Entries provide the standard information for all markets, such as location, days and hours of operation, and nearest Metro stop, as well as the authors' recommendations and detailed descriptions of the articles offered for sale, including specialty items. For travelers with limited time, suggested itineraries list markets by geographic area and open days, which allows the reader to find, for example, a flea market on the Right Bank that is open on Mondays. . . . travelers wanting to experience Paris by strolling its markets with the locals will find this guide invaluable." --"Library Journal" "A wonderful book. . . . The book is more than a listing of where to locate open and roving markets--it helps you narrow down which ones are better, what personality each market has, and what you can expect to find at your favorite." --BonjourParis "You can find pretty much anything you want in the markets of Paris: old letters, dead bears, live chickens. The only problem is that you'd have to roam around hours and hours to find them. The newly released book by "Markets of Paris" is a "vade me
