Yoony Eats Paris: Bastille Open Market

I woke up early Sunday morning in Paris to check out the Bastille open market, which is actually considered the best one in Paris. And lucky me, it was only a stone's throw away on the other side of the block. The huge open market was bustling, filled with so much fresh food, and exactly the Parisian experience I was looking for. From produce to cured meats, prepared foods, olives, pate, kitchen knick knacks (I bought a nice oyster knife there), cheeses, freshly baked bread... it was so awesome. I felt at home in Paris right about then. I can definitely live there, even with the cold weather. Riding the metro would do my health good, I would fall in love with so many restaurants, have perfectly crusty baguettes everyday with a nice piece of cheese that would only cost me a few euros. I dream. But then there is no Mexican food there.... hrmph.

Anyhow, here are some pictures I took. Enjoy~!

Delicious saucisson that nourished me for a few days. Yes the sparkling wine was nourishment too.

Yum! And yet, I had lines from the Comte de Monte Cristo bouncing through my head the whole time. La Bastille!

I love that book.
