My friend Kathy invited me to join her last week in Paris. She had rented an apartment which turned out to be just across from the Bastille Market. The market was in full swing when we arrived on Sunday morning and is also open on Thursday. Clay Williams says "The vendors at the city markets are not farmers, but local shopkeepers who source their meat and produce from Rungis, the large wholesale market that replaced the famous Les Halles some forty years ago."
We left the following Sunday afternoon, so I spent my last euros on a box of fresh raspberries.
