I think one of the most exciting things about moving
to Paris..for me...was to shop at the outdoor covered markets.
The President Wilson open air food market is held
in my neighborhood (lucky for me) every
Wednesday and Saturday.
You can bet I'll be a frequent costumer.
So after the big kids got off to school
Griffy and I headed to the market.
rice, couscous, beans, lentils...
no shortage of produce here...
the nice vendor let me try one as I had
no clue what they were at first.
Griffy and I gobbled them right up.
dried fruits and nuts...
just a sample of the wide variety of olives..
again, i tried a few and of course couldn't
decide on just one.
oh the cheeses!
i will make it a point to try them all!
today i tried..and came home with this
soft, creamy St. Nectair..
had i not filled up on fritters, olives and cheese
i would have tried the paella.
next week :)
i need to figure out how to push the
stroller and pull my grocery cart.
and today at the market
a baguette (of course), radishes, two bags of olives,
tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella, cod fritters, a bottle of wine, basil,
st. nectair cheese, madelines, and olives.
