Yes, I really did take photos of vegetables and fruit in the Paris markets, they were so pretty! The displays had more of a farmers market feel, rather than an actual grocery store feel.
I'd love a few of these for a vase arrangement.
Their clementines were divine!
Juicy and so tasty.
I looked at the Curcuma and tried to figure out what I knew it as. The name was so familiar (no WiFi, no internet). Later I found this... "Curcuma is a genus of about 100 accepted species in the family Zingiberaceae that contains such species as turmeric and Siam Tulip" (source)
And then remembered I fell hard for Curcuma alismatifolia during the last Garden Bloggers Fling in WA DC, in the garden of Linda Holister. Here's a photo of one of her plants...
I wonder if I could have gotten one of these to bloom and what the flower would look like? (no, I did not try and bring one back through U.S. customs)
These "panier de fruits" (aka fruit basket, which really looks like a fruit bag)...
Were already made up and ready to go home. How handy, and with country of origin listed even.
The store was actually quite large, with shelf/dry goods and a meat and cheese department.
The produce section was the most photographable though.
Another day, another market. Although it appears to be the same company Bio c' Bon, something I didn't realize until looking through my photos.
Aloé Véra (aloeee verha according to my Google translate app), from Spain.
Have I ever had a Kumquat? I'm not sure.
The carrot selection! All the different colors...
Hmmm, and look at this, chocolate spread with hazelnuts and agave! I should have bought some.
Or maybe one of these instead. All the delicious and good for you drinks, like Carrot Kick, Green Love, Red Boost, Framboise, Menthe...
Another day, another market.
With a fresh juice machine!
I should have tried some fresh juice...
