It is estimated that two-thirds of all Parisians take their holidays in August, and the boulangère is no exception. The result?

Help is at hand though from the city of Paris and their list of all the establishments across the city that are open in August.
Their featured address for August? Le Grenier à Pain in the Rue des Abbesses, winner of this year's 'best baguette in Paris' competition!
