Even though Passover is near, these are not THOSE kinds of macaroons (not that there’s anything wrong with those!).

Tomorrow, March 20, is the third annual Macaron Day NYC. Francois Payard started this tradition, which coincides with the Jour du Macaron in Paris, in 2010. Patrons will receive a free macaron in participating stores by walking in and telling them that you are there for Macaron Day NYC.

Aside from getting to sample macarons from some favorite neighborhood shops, there is also a good cause involved. A portion of the proceeds for macarons bought that day will benefit City Harvest.

Participants will be:

Bisous, Ciao. Macarons

Bosie Tea Parlor

Bouchon Bakery

Butterfield Market

Cannelle Patisserie

Chantilly Patisserie

Epicerie Boulud

FP Patisserie

Francois Payard Bakery

Macaron Café

Macaron Parlour

Mad-Mac “The Authentic French Macarons”

At  Bernardaud

Michael Allen International Confectioner

Mille Feuille Bakery and Café

The Todd English Food Hall

Quantites, of course, are limited by location, so get there early to stuff face.
