sundays in paris

This past Sunday we went to Richard Lenoir Market by Place de la Bastille. It was really crowded, but so many fantastic fruits, vegetables, meats, cheeses, flowers, grains, fish, breads and prepared food. More often than not, each are artfully displayed in front of line-ups of people, clamoring to get the best pick.

After fighting the crowds we got out alive with a rotisserie chicken, a baguette, a small container of tartaflette, shallots, and on the way home some sweets from Jaques Genin. J is obsessed with trying all the best-rated tarte au citron, so we've been having a lot of sweets lately! Not complaining. I could do with a daily trip to Pierre Hermé!
