    In Paris, every neighborhood has it’s own outdoor market.  Our neighborhood market just happens to be the largest in Paris and is held every Thursday 8am to 1:30pm and Sunday 8am to 2pm.  Of course, there are also more traditional grocery stores, the one we go to is called the Monoprix, but in my interpretation most Parisians purchase at least some of their weekly groceries at one of these outdoor markets.  Dusty and I go to the Marché Bastille every Thursday and Sunday to pick up food for the next few days.

    Our market has three aisles of vendors that stretch several blocks. There are over a hundred different sellers, displaying a range of items from fruits to fish to flowers to leather goods and scarves, and everything in between.

    Here are a few pictures I took of les fleurs (the flowers) they sell at the market.  The flowers are so beautiful that it makes me want to fill our entire apartment with them.
