Cantine California, an American food truck, is taking the Paris street food scene by storm. How? With gourmet burgers, tacos, cupcakes and other American specialties it’s conquering the Parisians one by one. American and Canadian owner Jordan Feilders created Cantine California to bring together the high quality organic and fresh ingredients found in France with the American street food tradition and classic recipes. And the perfect home for his gourmet food truck? The lively outdoor markets in Paris naturally! You’ll find Cantine California at two markets in Paris, the Marché St.-Honoré and Marché Raspail.
Located in the heart of the 1st arrondissement, the Marché St.-Honoré is near the Louvre, Tuileries gardens and the elegant Place Vendôme. If you’re staying at the lovely, two bedroom Sylvaner vacation rental on Rue de la Paix, you’ll be just around the corner from the Marché St.-Honoré. This open-air market sets up in Place du Marché St.-Honoré every Wednesday and Saturday, so just stop by for a burger and cupcake after a visit to the Louvre or to take a break from shopping.
The Marché Raspail in the 6th arrondissement is one of our favorite Paris open-air markets. This market sets up along Boulevard Raspail from Rue du Cherche-Midi to Rue de Rennes every Tuesday and Friday (and Sunday as an organic market). It’s also a favorite with guests staying in our vacation rentals in the 6th arrondissement, such as the Corton, Nuits Saint Georges or the Chinon. Do your daily shopping alongside Parisians and you won’t miss Cantine California – just follow the delicious scents to their food truck for lunch!
