Last weekend was the Fete de MANGER LOCAL held on the quai de la Seine by pont d'Alma = more eating!
Loads of producteurs/farmers etc. from the Ile de France department onboard to share their bounty.
It was a perfect day for picnicking, bright and sunny
Delicious gloopy home-made jams
Made by the ice cream lady.
I ate the very fraise/strawberry. It could not have been more berryesque.
Why do I want everything I see at these special marches especially if it has cherries in it.
Nutty breads for your cherry jam...
Or you could go the ham route.
I got a big bottle of apple-pear juice for 3 euros.
Fruit juices come bubbly or flat.
The mushroom lady, Marianne, a champignonnier
I got a 1/2 kilos of champignon de Paris.
It's Fall so there must be a French squirrel.
Why didn't I get fresh cresson instead of the cherry tomatoes. Did you know you can go picking fruit and veg on local farms around Paris?
I sat down for a munch and noticed a free-range mushroom lurking but decided to let it be. Don't miss the pop-up gastronomic markets in Paris. Loads of tastes and loads of fun.
Are you coming to Paris soon? I could shoot you in the Palais Royal and then deliver your portrait in 2 days or so. No French poste to deal with. Let me know.
