It’s NYC Macaron Day! That means over 15 NYC bakeries will be handing out free macarons on March 20, 2016 during the annual NYC Macaron Day. The NYC celebration coincides with Paris’s National Macaron Day (Jour du Macaron) – a tradition that was started by macaron master Pierre Hermé almost a decade ago (thanks François!). The list of participating bakeries includes macaron greats like Bouchon Bakery and FP Patisserie. Macaron Parlour is one of my favorites and a must on my free macaron rounds. Here’s a map of all of participating bakeries so you can map out your own Macaron Day route.
To receive a free macaron tell any of the participating bakeries you are there for Macaron Day NYC. Participating locations will provide one macaron per customer, though quantities may be limited by location.
Good to know: A portion of the sale of additional macarons at many of the bakeries will be donated to City Harvest – an organization dedicated to feeding hungry New Yorkers.
