If you follow us on Instagram or Twitter, you’ll know that at the beginning of this month, H and I spent a lovely long weekend in Paris. Neither of us knowing quite what to expect we were in awe of the beauty of the city, and we really had the loveliest of times, hopefully it’s not too long before we return!
We thought we’d share a few spots we went to. And first on the list was Le Marché des Enfants Rouges.
After a stroll round Saint Germain, we hopped in a taxi and headed to the market, H and I love markets and this one had everything you could possibly desire to eat.
A man making fresh Lebanese inspired meat pastries, there was an abundance of humous and tabouleh to pair them with.
My favourite butter will always be French butter, with a touch of fleur de sel; slapped on some french baguette, slowly melting over a topside of beef, coating jersey potatoes in a pool of glimmering goodness. You really can’t go wrong!
Vibrate colours at every corner, tomatoes on vines, oranges in their own plastic bag.
What tempted us the most were these sandwiches, perfectly toasted, melted cheese, meat, sauted onion and salad adorned this station, and the smell was pretty special.
We watched as stalls wrapped flowers in brown paper…
…the selection was ongoing.
Just outside the market entrance was the most enchanting fruit and vegetable shop. Well somewhere between a shop and a stall.
Well presented berries, including white strawberries.
And the loveliest chunky baby carrots, we also spotted mini bananas.
Have you been to any Parisian Market you’d recommend for our next trip?
