Temptation: Food windows and displays in Paris

Laduree macaroons - yum!
Here’s a collection of photos of some of the windows and market stalls we have passed, and bought from.

We went to the Bastille markets last Sunday and they were about half food and half other wares such as clothes and leather goods. 

Lots of locals shop there and by the quality of the food you could understand why. 

Almost made us wish we had a kitchen to take some back to cook with!

Walking around there is an endless array of temptations: Laduree macarons, boulangeries, patisseries, fromageries and more.

Cakes - we resisted - this time
Lucky Mr Jax is such a slave driver with his fitness wristband counting all our steps and kilometres!

I have walked at least 10,000 steps every day here in Paris and around 17,000 steps on three of our 7 days. 
Hard to imagine after the year I have had health wise. 
Exhausting, but I’ve done it!

So now off to our last dinner in Paris (for this trip).

Fish, including turbot like I ate at Jules Verne 
Spices - ah the aroma!

A very small section of the cheese display 
Shellfish - prawns, lobster, crabs

Dried and glazed fruit

  1. A little better than the Port Fairy markets. Hope you didn't pig out on the glazed fruits (or chocolates)
