Hi there - this is Ann, checking in from Paris.

I've been spending a lot of time in Paris these days (not on vacay, but actually working on our new business here).

I’m grateful to be in a city that worships fresh food and it’s been a wonderful experience to explore new markets that we might have skipped over in the past.  My new favorite is the Saxe Breteuil market that runs along a sweeping boulevard, anchored by Louis Pasteur on one end and the Ecole Militaire, the Champs de Mars and the Eiffel tower on the other.  Talk about a scenic location!

Open on Thursdays and Saturdays, this market is a gourmand’s dream, with vegetables you’ve never heard of, cheeses of every kind, fruits in season, fish you didn’t know existed, shellfish, mollusks, fowl, beef, sausages stuffed with every imaginable filling, pasta, nuts, sweets, breads and yes, sweetbreads, desserts and so much more.  Everything is fresh and the worst possible thing to do is go hungry because you’ll never be able to carry it all home!

Just one more thing to adore about Paris!  

Saxe Breteuil market,  37-31 Av. de Saxe, 75007 Paris

Opens 7 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Thursdays and Saturdays.

Bon appétit!
