It was such a celebration of mainly French produce.
So many pumpkins! I'd been lead to believe that the French don't eat pumpkin, but clearly someone does.
I love pumpkin and have been trying it whenever the opportunity presents.

And mushrooms of all sorts

I'm not sure if these are even available in Australia? Physalis. Or particularly what I would do with them if I had them.
|I need to buy some of these next time|
I did try one growing in a park
|Black radish I believe|
|They had amazing yellow tomatoes too|
and cooked beetroot sitting out!
So much delicious cheese on offer.

Clearly some produce is imported

Checking out a market in Paris is always worthwhile. Whichever one is near you.

I shouldn't have looked at this post while I was trying to work out what to do for dinner!
Now I just want Paris!!
I did a quick google of the Physalis; apparently it's part of the nightshade family, sometimes also called cape gooseberry or ground cherry, somewhat like a tomato & can be used in the same savoury/sweet way a tomato could be. Not all varieties are edible :-)
Oh my goodness what a lot of lovely produce - so much choice, my mouth is watering at the thought of it all.
You're making me hungry! I love all of the market photos. What a joy it must be to wander through there. Have a great weekend!
That market looks amazing. I don't know why people don't eat pumpkin. They don't eat it here in America either unless its in a pie for Thanksgiving. I could spend a small fortune and gain several kgs in the cheese section.

I'm hungry now! The cheese, the wine - yum! Your pictures show the beauty that can be found everywhere, even in food markets!
I am now very hungry, even though I just ate breakfast! Thanks for sharing....and here's MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT POST
I love French markets or European food markets, they are wonderful. Those photos are making me hungry.
What a wonderful market. I don't think there is anywhere else in the world you would see cheese like that.
Looks like there's something for everyone at that market! I enjoyed your colorful photos of beautiful eats. My husband and I hope to visit Paris in the next few years, and we'll be sure to set aside plenty of time to explore the market.

What an abundance of beautiful offerings! And a great way to begin a vacation in Paris.

That is a gorgeous array of produce. Good thing I've already eaten or I'd be rummaging dispiritedly in my own fridge and finding nothing as appealing as all of this.
My mother started watering. So many choices. I totally would have been brave enough because that photo made me curious. And some of the cheeses . . . I wish photos came with aroma!
It all looks so beautiful!
