New York City Other All Regions Francois Payard Hosts Citywide Macaron Crawl to Benefit City Harvest

Bisous Ciao, Bouchon Bakery, Éclair Bakery, Epicerie Boulud, FP Patisserie, Francois Payard Bakery, Macaron Café, Mille Feuille and Sugar & Plumm to offer free macarons during the 5th Annual “Macaron Day NYC”
Pâtissier Francois Payard and City Harvest will mark the first day of spring by hosting a citywide macaron crawl, where fourteen participating bakeries will offer free samples of the pastel pastries all day, on Friday, March 20th, 2015. The annual event is intended to educate New Yorkers on the pastry while raising money and awareness for City Harvest, a nonprofit dedicated to feeding hungry New Yorkers.

The celebration coincides with the original Jour du Macaron in Paris, founded by La Masion du Macaron by Pierre Hermé in association with Relais Desserts International. For the past seven years, Hermé and Relais Desserts have brought together the biggest names in pastry throughout Paris, and now New York, to promote macarons.

This year’s Macaron Day NYC participants include: Bisous Ciao, Bouchon Bakery, Chantilly Patisserie, Eclair Bakery, Épicerie Boulud, FP Patisserie, Francois Payard Bakery, Macaron Café, Macaron Parlour, Mad-Mac, Whoops!, Spot Dessert Bar, The Todd English Food Hall, Mille Feuille Bakery and Café, and Sugar & Plumm.

In 2010, with the permission of Relais Desserts International and La Maison du Macaron by Pierre Hermé, Payard brought Macaron Day to New York City. A portion of all proceeds of the participating bakeries on Macaron Day in New York City will be donated to City Harvest, as well as 100% of the sales from the City Harvest Macaron Day apron (available at all FP Patisserie and Francois Payard Bakery locations).

Now serving New York City for more than 30 years, City Harvest ( is the world's first food rescue organization, dedicated to feeding the city's hungry men, women, and children. This year, City Harvest will collect 46 million pounds of excess food from all segments of the food industry, including restaurants, grocers, corporate cafeterias, manufacturers, and farms. This food is then delivered free of charge to more than 500 community food programs throughout New York City by a fleet of trucks and bikes. City Harvest helps feed the nearly two million New Yorkers that face hunger each year.
