The Market at Blvde Richard Lenoire, Paris

The days we went to the market at Boulevarde Richard Lenoire in Paris, the stalls were mainly filled with fruit, vegetables, meat and dairy items. This was just what we wanted, as we were self catering in a top floor garret in Marais.   

The food is good quality and much cheaper than you can buy in the local supermarkets or vegetable shops. And everyone is patient with our attempts to use French when we order our supplies.

Beautiful oranges from Italy

I have to admit that my favourite purchase was a tin of terrine from the deli, some nice bread and a bottle of red – why else do you visit Paris!
