Marché Raspail, Paris

Listen to the quietude… you can always tell it’s a Sunday in Paris. I alight from the metro station Rennes on my way to Colorova patisserie for brunch and stumble across an open-air market.

Marché Biologique Raspail is an organic market in the 6eme arrondissement extending the length of boulevard Raspail between metro stations Sèvres-Babylone and Rennes. The market sells a variety of certified organic produce, and on that Sunday morning, it was a hub of activity among the Parisians.

Fresh produce, bread, flowers and a tantalising array of fish, seafood and fines de claires oysters beckon on a cold winter morning along with plump organic chickens that would make a fine coq au vin. Rows of organic wines and cider tempt one to stop and have a little taste. A gypsy woman selling bright yellow flowers tries to catch my attention. Je suis desolée… there is only time for a quick photo snap.
