WHAT IS MACARON DAY NYC?
In 2010, François Payard,
chef and owner of FP Patisserie and
François Payard Bakery in
New York, organized the first annual
Macaron Day in NYC. Macaron Day NYC is inspired by and
coincides annually with the Jour du
Macaron in Paris, created by la Maison Pierre Hermé
Paris in association with the Relais Desserts.
Join us on
Thursday, March 20,
2014 to discover macarons in New York as bakeries across the
city once again come together to provide free macarons
To receive a
free macaron tell the shop you are there for
Macaron Day NYC.
Participating locations will
provide one macaron per customer with
quantities limited by location.
Macaron Day takes place between 10am to 5pm.
Want more macarons? At many participating
locations, a portion of the day’s macaron
sales will be donated to City-Harvest.
Indulge in macarons while contributing
the efforts of City Harvest.
