Self Catering New Years Eve

Hello - My husband & I will be in Paris from 27th Dec to the 2nd & will be joined by 6 other friends for NYE. We are lucky to have the use of a friends small appartment in Montemarte & our friends have hired a 3 bedroom appatment near by. Our plan is to dine at the big appartment & then head out for fireworks & join the festivities on the streets & bars.

I am looking for recomendations on any near by food markets that I can buy quality food. My thoughts at the moment are oysters (& perhaps some other seafood) foie gras, quail, cheese, wine & a premade dessert of sorts. would like to keep it relativly simple as I am not sure of what the self contained appt actually contains in the kitchen.

I can pre order the food if needed but would aim to collect & buy on Thursday the 31st if possible. Are markets actually open over the holiday period?

Also, I realise that there are many wine shops located through out the city but I was wondering if there are any larger warehouse type outlets that may offer delivery and perhaps discount on bulk buying?

any suggestions will be much appreciated!
