One reason you’ll fall in love with Paris is their outdoors farmers’ markets. 即使在 “sketchiest” 镇的部分 (17日的边界 & 18次区) 你可以得到最新鲜的, 最美味的产品. 我说sketchiest, 因为你将不得不提防挑腰包 (通常归咎于吉普赛人, 虽然我没有这样的经历), 人沿街乞讨, 你会看到很多prosties寻找在夜间客户. 巴黎的这个区域是不是你在明信片中看到的, 但它有它的魅力和丰富华丽的建筑 (认为圣心大教堂 & 红磨坊).
这个周六, 安东尼奥和我率领的Batignolles市场, 因为第二天是复活节，我们想通一切都将被关闭. 市场只是几步之遥从Boulevard des Batignolles大道克利希广场. 有人告诉我，市场仅在星期六, and as with most French farmers’ market, 我建议你到那里早. 他们通常接近中午左右或下午1点. 这里的每一个供应商是生物 (法国长期有机), 所以一切都是一流的. Here’s a picture tour of all the delicious goodies you can pick up at this lovely marche.
自制果冻 & preserves for about 6€ you can get one of these containers in flavors such as cassis, 覆盆子, 蒲公英, 接骨木, 樱桃, 瓜, 草莓, 杏, 青番茄, 图, 黑莓, 红醋栗, 蓝莓, and gooseberry.
它不会是没有主食一个马尔凯. 你可以得到你所有的大宗水果有: 苹果, 柠檬, 梨, 瓜, 等等…
I’m not really sure how these are “生物” 在巴黎, 但我很高兴在这里找到granadillas. 我一直没能找到他们在美国. 如果你找到一个, 破解它的一半 (the top so you can hold it like a wine glass…I used to make pretend when I was little), 抢勺子，吃美味的种子. MMMMMM!
蔬菜充足, they’ve got pretty much everything you need and more including Radishes, 洋葱, 青葱, 萝卜, 土豆, and broccoli…
Vegetable stands abound with organic goodies like red & 白菜, 橘子, 柠檬红薯, 榛子, 生姜, 和萝卜.
我提到这些华丽的扇贝? 哦, 是啊…I did.
虾, 多拉多, 和海鳗 (嗯caldillo德congrio).
鳕鱼, 鲤鱼, 和鞋底.
生蚝, 在世界上我最喜欢的事情. If you buy them to take home they charge less…but they will also shuck them for you so you can eat them right there. These were oysters from the isles of Charente-Maritime, and Fines de Claires oysters.
How about a little squid?
Hake, squid, pollock, salmon, sole, and dorado were also available.
Turbot, cod fillet, and haddock.
You can get all different kinds of rillettes: 沙丁鱼, mackerel, and white tuna. If you haven’t tried a rillette, they are is similar to pâtés. Traditional rillettes are made with pork, which is cubed, 切碎的, salted heavily and cooked. Rillettes are now made of many ingredients as you can see on the picture above. They also have jarred goodies such as calamari in olive oil, falvored salts, and grissinis.
如果你碰巧饿了, there are plenty of Poulet Roti stands to pick from.
My favorite snack at the marche were these potato & onion cakes (or as those of us on the UWS call them – Latkes). They were served plain, and were super warm. Suddenly I was craving creme fraiche and caviar.
Did I mention it was 37 度. These were the perfect treat.
It would not be a French market without amazing bread…we took quite a few of these home!
And these 🙂
The Batignolles market is situated between Place Clichy & Metro Rome. If you can’t make it there, try the Raspail Market which is open on Sundays or Marché d’Aligre.
