This year, Faubourg and Chez Christophe are teaming up on National Macaron Day to raise funds to support those affected by the conflict in Ukraine by offering a special Ukrainian macaron in celebration of the annual charitable event.
Customized in the distinct blue and yellow colours of the Ukrainian flag, Faubourg’s Honey and Sour Cream macaron will be available for purchase individually in-stores and Chez Christophe’s 6-pack of Blueberry and Passion fruit Macarons (3 of each) will be available for pre-orders and in-stores.

Both stores will be donating proceeds from their macaron sales on Saturday, March 19 to the Ukraine Humanitarian Relief Committee’s humanitarian appeal, a joint initiative established by the Ukrainian Canadian Congress and the Canada-Ukraine Foundation dedicated to providing humanitarian assistance to the people in Ukraine impacted by the ongoing crisis.
Guests are encouraged to help support this important effort by visiting any of Faubourg’s two Vancouver locations and Chez Christophe’s Burnaby and White Rock locations on March 19. For store hours, please visit www.faubourg.com and www.chez-christophe.ca.

History of National Macaron Day
Launched by Parisian pastry chef Pierre Hermé in 1995, Macaron Day has not only become an opportunity to celebrate spring with one of the most widely adored French treats but also to raise donations for charitable causes to help those in need. The concept combines both sweetness and generosity and has now become a tradition in countries around the globe. 2022 marks the twelfth year Vancouver bakeries and pastry shops will be participating in the annual event.
Faubourg is a renowned French bakery, pâtisserie, and café with two established locations across Vancouver. Over the past 12 years, Faubourg has established a reputation for specializing in artisanal French pastries, bread, viennoiseries, macarons, and more – all of which are handmade onsite throughout the year.
