I'd planned to visit Pari Fermier today, outside Paris in Rambouillet, Bergerie Nationale - a producteurs marche with milking cows and pigs and... But my ride fell through and the buses aren't running because it's a national holiday. I did go last weekend to the Parc Floral Pari Fermier at Chateau de Vincennes as a healthy break from the 6-day Salon du Chocolat.
Plenty of giant pommes and NO chocolate.
Their prune-pear jam was very enticing.
As always large and small animals decorate the stands though I would have preferred a few live ones like today at Rambouillet.
Many, many chevre made by
The same fromagere from Pari Fermier Autumn
Tastes of raspberries filled with raspberry syrup.
The berries came home with me.
So many kinds of honey in France. More research must be done.
Organic vegetables with long CVs to study over.
I'm always tempted by these snails. Next time it's a go.
Gougeres filled with goat cheese. Bingo. Into my bag.
I was mystified by Austrian sausages at an all French products marche?
Ah ha! Ostrich not Austrian sausage. Uh oh
Alsacien wines and apple juice. Yum
But I bought instead this nectar de groseilles/red currents.
Or that's what I thought I was buying. Chez moi it turned out to be Pomme-Cassis. Just as delish but one must take note of what one is buying the mad hub-bub of the market shopping experience.
