Last Saturday brought beautiful weather to Paris. It was a perfect day for a food fair along the River Seine. Called Manger Local (Eat Locally), the event featured fresh agricultural products from the Ile-de-France region, plus activities for children. It took place on the Left Bank between Pont des Invalides and Pont de l’Alma.
Kids played tether ball.
And practiced rock climbing.
Rock climbing was scarey!
Some of the adults (and children, too) got a back massage.
And then there was the food. The Bügelski food truck was there, selling bagel sandwiches.
They were doing a brisk business.
I purchased a bottle of apple juice, a pastrami sandwich, and a slice of cheese cake.
Then, from Thaï Thanh I purchased a scoop of Fleur d’oranger à la pistache (orange flower sorbet with pistachio) and Poivron, orange sanguine et espelette (bell pepper and blood orange sorbet flavored with Espelette pepper) on a cone. I blogged about Thaï in June of this year.
I finished off the lunch with a cup of espresso from Brûlerie Caron’s coffee stand. Caron won the Meilleur Torréfacteur de France award in 2011. Their shop is located in Châtillon, just seven kilometers from Paris.
There were lots of food and produce stands displaying locally-produced agricultural products.
And there were lots of families there enjoying the beautiful day in Paris!
A good time was had by all!
