Galeries Lafayette Paris

There is nothing better than traversing markets and stores in other countries. I absolutely adore seeing what locals purchase and sell in all different areas. While I tend to stick to the more down to Earth galerias  and les halles; once in a while, I crave a little luxury. When I was in Italy, this craving was sated by the many Eatalies throughout the country. In Paris, this was taken care of by Galeries Lafayette Gourmet. Galeries Lafayette is a chain of stores that has been around since 1912. Clotheshorses would always make this a destination on their visits to the city of lights. 

Galeries Lafayette Paris

The flagship for Galeries Lafayette  is located in the 9th Arrondissement of Paris on Boulevard Haussmann near the Palais Garnier Opera house and the Musee du Parfum Fragonard. The store offers 753,474 square feet of shopping. It's HUGE. When  you arrive, you will note that the store is divided into two buildings. One is for regular shopping, the second is dedicated to food (that's my favorite part). 

The food market at Galeries Lafayette has everything a foodie can desire. What can you get there? Here's a glimpse at some of the things you can purchase at Galeries Lafayette:

Duck Confit

Confit de canard is one of France's signature dishes. While it is originally from Gascony, it has been adopted throughout the country. The dish uses the entire duck and is quite labor intensive. The duck is salted and then cooked in its own fat. Most French won't make this dish, but buy it from purveyors such as Freres Gourmets. Two thigs cost €15.
