Every neighborhood in Paris has a market. While Rue du Buci is listed as a market, given the shops are here permanently and they do not have vendors setting up shop I never really consider it a market street myself. That said I do like taking a stroll down the street. There is a flower vendor, produce vendor, cheese shop and many more. When the weather is warm the sidewalk is lined with chairs as patrons enjoy a glass of wine or coffee.
For years I would always see this man working at the fish store. And then I returned one year and he was not there. I have never seen him since and always wonder what happened to him.
I love admiring and eat the fruit that is on display.
Cooking is one of my passions in life. Enjoying good food, pastries, chocolate and everything the French have to savor is my other. This should come as a surprise given my father chose my name after reading The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
I am a voracious reader and collector of cookbooks. Little did I know that all my grade school French lessons would come in handy one day.
