The team behind our favorite cookies and baked goods, Maman, is opening a marketplace, Marché Maman, and it’s a gifting paradise. Nestled directly next to Maman’s Soho cafe in New York City, the shop is filled with hard-to-find French brands—Provence-made beauty and bathing products from Bastide, plus chic kids clothing and accessories by designer Merci Bisous—as well as flowers and arrangements from Flower Girl and Maman’s own vintage pieces and tableware.
The market opens tomorrow, July 13, and it features—this is our favorite part—an epicly Instagramable backyard “jardin de maman” outfitted by West Elm, where you can enjoy table service breakfast, brunch and lunch. The food is as part of a rotating chef-curated menu program at Marché, and Anna Watson Carl (author of The Yellow Table) is the opening guest chef. There will be Maman cookies, of course, and also ice cream from MilkMade (in flavors like lavender chocolate and matcha stracciatella!).
The market will also play host to events, workshops, tastings, and product launches.
Curated by the founding partners of Maman—Benjamin Sormonte and Elisa Marshall—Marché is sure to become the ultimate gathering place in New York to rest, eat and shop.
