Markets are part of the fabric of French life. From the standard street markets to specialist antique, flower, organic and flea markets, Paris has them all.
Two weeks ago on a Wednesday night in Paris we were watching frames being erected across the street from our hotel and by Thursday morning, a flea market had appeared.
Organic fruits and vegetables.
Clothes, scarves, jewelry.
There was even fresh fish and other goodies. By the time we got back later that afternoon, the tents had been dismantled and everything cleared away. This particular flea market takes place every Thursday and Sunday from 7:00-2:30 but there are close to 100 that pop up all over the city at different times during the week.
All week we've had brilliant blue skies. Not a cloud to be seen.
And it is still very hot. Even now, just after 6 pm. it is 104 degrees. Although I've been watering every day, some of the flowering plants from last week have already dried up. The sun is just too intense mid-day.
I'm thankful that another weekend has rolled around. Hope you are having a great week so far. Best wishes and blessings, Tammy
