Marché Bastille


Marché Bastille – last Sunday I met up Parisbreakfasts for some oysterhunting. The idea was to buy some douzaines des huîtres..but ended up sharing a plate with fresh oysters on the spot instead (not bad having oysters as breakfast…..Paris breakfasts ;-) healthy, healthy!) and then set off to Arnaud Lahrer for some sweet desserts.

It was a long time I hadn’t been to Marché Bastille and it was quite fun to see all the different stalls with fish and seafood..we only have two fish mongers at Marché Bio (boulevard Raspail) the market I’m faithful to on Sunday mornings… However there is a section with organic veggies and fruits too at marché Bastille…and then ofcourse lots of cheese, meat, bread, olives, dips, cider, herbs, eggs, fresh milk and cream,..artisinal products, you name it.

If you’re looking for a real taste of Paris head to this big outdoor food market, marché Bastille with its 50+ stalls and you won’t get dissapointed. A unique experience among locals ;-)
