On March 20th, 2015, macaron makers all over Portland will join those in Paris and New York in celebrating Macaron Day or Jour du Macaron. On this first day of spring, participating bakeries and patisseries will give a free macaron to customers who donate to Meals on Wheels People ($2 suggested minimum donation). This will be a fun event to indulge in Parisian macarons and support a Portland non-profit that provides 5,000 meals a day to seniors.
This year there are 15 participating Bakeries & Patisseries. Some will be making special macarons for this event, and visiting all shops is encouraged! Nuvrei will give out commemorative tote bags to the first customers on March 20th. Follow the fun with #MacaronDayPDX
