The Saxe-Breteuil Market .....

is fabulous. This well known market is open from 7am to 2:30 pm every Thursday and Saturday morning.. Among the many markets in Paris, this has the reputation of being one of the best and certainly the most beautiful.


It was so big, and the variety of the stalls kept me enthralled for over an hour or so. How many times have you been to a market with 3 or 4 fish stalls, or stalls that sell only Mushrooms or Tomatoes, the Fruit et Legumes stalls were packed with such variety. So much more too!! You will have to go and visit for yourself!

Can you imagine being so HAPPY over a market!!!



Tomatoes Galore!!!

  2. Thanks Dawn... we have markets in the UK too, but they are soooo different to the Parisien ones.

    We have also started to get more Farmers markets, but they can be quite expensive!!

    We need to hatch a plan ... get our husbands to buy us a place in Paris.. we could share :-) oh they could come and visit us.

  3. I like going to look at things just as much as buying them. Those odd looking tomatoes were probably the tastiest!

  13. Pattypan -- I always wondered what those things were called. We used to have them in our garden, and asked but no one could tell us.
