« Time out in Paris |
| Easter greetings »
Benoit, the handsome and charming French florist, sells a profusion of gorgeous flowers, floral arrangements and potted plants. Ladies, he is contemplating a move to the United States!
Masses of tulips from Benoit's floral shop.
Roses, roses and more roses!
Daisies for planting are heaped in baskets.
These artichokes rival flowers in their sculpted beauty.
Fresh pineapple is on special offer at one vendor's stall.
Some favourite vendors pose for the camera. These guys sell delicious seasonal fruits and vegetables, always with good humour.
Coquille St. Jacques is a perennial best-seller, particularly for New Year's celebrations. The crevettes are always popular.
These langoustines are neatly stacked on a bed of ice in a wooden container at the market's best fishmonger.
Perhaps you can pick up your favourite vintage at this wine merchant's stall.
Old books are sold by an interesting man who came to France many years ago as a young orphan and refugee from Vietnam. He declined to have his photo taken.
Shoes are among the numerous clothing items in abundance at the market.
If you want to change the look of a chair, this reupholstery service is always on hand.

sigh...I am wondering when, exactly, can I go to Paris again?? Your gorgeous photos bring Paris alive. Thank you. For those of us who have been there, they make us "home sick" for those who haven't, they show us what we are missing!

I can't wait to window shop in Paris when we visit in May!

It's like being there again :)

C'est tres beau! (and I don't mean the flowers--although they ARE lovely and you did a fantastic job of illustrating that :-)
07 April 2007 at 17:56
I can smell those roses through the screen...just beautiful!
07 April 2007 at 12:26
Oh, thank you for letting me see Paris through your eyes (someday, it will be through my own!). I don't know if I was more taken with the flowers, the artichokes, or the people. And, I could have just buried myself in those books...

What a fantasy, a dream, a glorious journey through photos, I think I finally found the shoes I have been searching for.

I'll take a few artichokes, a bunch of roses (any color will do), let's see...a few books, a bottle of wine, and a pair of ballerines! haha!
07 April 2007 at 05:22
The tulips, the artichokes and the books caught my eye! Well, maybe Benoit did too but I'm a happily married woman!!
07 April 2007 at 04:44
Oh my heart be still! Those roses and tulips took my breath away! Beautiful!
Happy Easter.hugs NG

Thanks for the tour!!! I'm really into roses lately. This was such a refreshing afternoon stroll for me :)
07 April 2007 at 03:41
I drank it all in, thank you. Tonight I will be dreaming of Roses Mauve....
And those red chairs!
07 April 2007 at 03:29
Oh Those Tulips...En Masse..sending you everything good En masse this Easter!
PS..Those lobster/shrimpy things with the eyes really weird me out..Heebee jeebee...shudder! No open eyes please.

I'm thinking in Bon Jovi (of whom I am not a gigantic fan) here... but I want to fling myself down in a bed of all those pink roses. NOW.
Thank you for brightening an otherwise freak weather day.
07 April 2007 at 01:05
I swear I could smell the flowers!
06 April 2007 at 21:59
Oh lovely! After going to our local farmer's market last night, then seeing yours today - well, I think yours may be the more aesthetically pleasing of the two - but then, yours IS in Paris! Perhaps if that goodlooking florist comes to the U.S. he'll bring some of his flair for presentation to our markets. The pictures are gorgeous, Tara. xo
06 April 2007 at 21:57
Oh, those roses are beautiful although everything at the market looks wonderful! Have a happy and blessed Easter!
06 April 2007 at 21:05
Now THIS is shopping!!
06 April 2007 at 19:34
I'll take one please (the first guy). :)
Everything is so beautiful!
06 April 2007 at 18:54
I agree, although our farmers' markets offer a more rewarding experience than the supermarket, they can't hold a candle to the open air Paris market. *sigh* Why do the French just know how to present things in an artful way? Have a wonderful Easter, Tara.
06 April 2007 at 18:51
This is amazing....to be treated with the sights you see, up close and full of splendor. Even vegetables seem to look better in Paris. That market seems to have something for everyone....including of the human variety.oohlala!!
Sometimes I come here and scroll down and then go back up and do it again in case I missed something!

Tara, how wonderful! These make me long for European markets -- I've shopped in them as an adult but it's been since childhood that the vendors knew me one sight. Sigh. Those flowers! That seafood!
06 April 2007 at 17:57
I love it all!!! You see. I must be there.. that is my city.. What am I doing all the way down here???
06 April 2007 at 17:21
Oh, I envy you your markets. Why are they so rare here in the states. Our farmer's market opens here tomorrow for the season, and though I love it, it doesn't have all the marvelous things you can get in Paris!
06 April 2007 at 16:44
Superb! The books are of course my favorite.
Tahnks for taking me on a walk in Paris.
06 April 2007 at 16:05
My goodness, is he not gorgeous!!!! I would love to be shopping at that market with you.
06 April 2007 at 15:12
Those flowers are gorgoeus!...So are the other stuff... But the French men?!!! Oooh la la. Hot hot hot:-)
Happy Easter Tara!
06 April 2007 at 15:00
Wow-wee! What a tableau! It's wonderful!
