Marché at the Plaza Athénée, Paris 8eme

'Le tout Paris' came out to see the displays and to chat with the farmers and producers who provision Alain Ducasse at the Hotel Plaza Athénée. Okay. Well, maybe not 'le tout Paris' but certainly many of the food obsessed were there.

Rialto Market, Venice - Italy

For over a week, I have been trying to get to Venice for lunch and a visit to the farmers market. This was a plan I'd cooked up some months ago, and while it does seem a bit over the top, I was determined.  Easy Jet and Mother Nature had other plans however, so it took several false starts before actually set foot on the Rialto where everything was in full swing at 9:15am.

Marché St. Eustache-les-Halles

Tucked in the shadows of the ancient and impressive Eglise St. Eustache (it's considered one of the most beautiful religious monuments of Paris) sits this tiny marché at the heart of the oldest, and most historic neighborhood of Paris.
