Lunch at the Market
Can you live in an international city and still find yourself walking around a village market ?
Bien sûr, c’est Paris !
If you’re strolling on the busy rue de Bretagne in the upper Marais, stop for lunch or grocery shopping at the Marché des Enfants Rouges, literally Market of the Red Children, named after the red uniform worn by the children who used to live in the former orphanage located here.
Lively voices of sellers echo throughout this old, 17th century covered market, hailing bypassers to bask in the scent of their fresh flowers, or even taste their wine or their regional French produce. Foie gras, fine cheeses and Bordeaux wines mix with delicious couscous, delicate sushi and Italian dishes. Pick your favorites from these fresh and colorful foods and enjoy your lunch!
Paris does seem like a village sometimes….
