The Canal Saint Martin has always attracted eclectic groups of visitors and Parisians, combining a quaint, off-the-beaten path quality with the perfect amount of postcard Paris charm. The neighbourhood has tempted foodies to this part of Paris for the past few decades, but a recent boom in new shops, cafés and galleries surrounding the canal has made this area –casually referred to as Village Saint Martin –not just a place to go for lunch or dinner, but a destination to spend the day.
In constant transformation, the block connecting the canal and the Faubourg Saint-Martin is full of new addresses replacing textile wholesalers with organic and green initiatives. If haters will regret that the Village Saint Martin has become a bobo hub, we prefer to rejoice that these younger crowds have given new life and funky vibes to this once-upon-a-time working class neighbourhood, mixing good cause and neat design with the classic East Parisian charm that never faded away.
TheWaysBeyond will guide you through the small streets of the Village Saint Martin to discover the hidden treasures promoting organic ingredients and a greener life, and empowering people with artistic approach. An occasion for you to have a sip of organic vegetable juices before discovering that yes, gluten-free pastry can taste good, as well as superfood vegan cuisine, but also to know more about contemporary plant creations and to finally end up the Parisian way, having a chat along the Canal, sharing some cheese and a glass of good natural wine!
