Macaron Day was created

by la Maison Pierre Hermé

Paris in association with

the Relais Desserts.




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 Friday, March 20, 2015 to discover macarons in New York as bakeries across the city once again come together to provide free macarons to customers.


To receive a free macaron tell the shop you are there for Macaron Day NYC.


Please note that participating locations will provide one macaron per customer with quantities by location between 10am and 5pm (or until supplies last).

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 to the efforts of City Harvest.

Founded in 1982 as the world’s first food rescue organization, City Harvest is dedicated to helping feed the more than 1.4 million New Yorkers facing hunger.  City Harvest will collect 50 million pounds of excess food from restaurants, grocers, bakeries, manufacturers, and farms, and deliver it free of charge to more than 500 community food programs across the city this year.  In addition to helping meet the immediate need for food, City Harvest takes a long-term approach to fighting hunger by partnering with residents, local organizations and businesses through Healthy Neighborhoods programs which increase the availability of affordable fruits and vegetables in low-income communities and provide the nutrition education and resources to maintain a wholesome, food-secure diet.
