Sabine and I made a quick trip over to Paris last week to eat and walk and wander around. We had an amazing meal at the wonderdul L’Ami Jean on the 27 rue Malar just off Quai D’Orsay – more on that in another article later this month. We’d decided to stay in Port Maillot near La Defence – but also near the suburb of Neuilly-sur-Seine, and this lead to a grand surprise.
The surprise was the Neuilly-sur-Seine Farmers’ Market, which appeared in front of us following an incredibly drab croque madame for breakfast at a corner bar up the road from our hotel (the AC Marriot). It’s not a huge market but it shines. Its peppers and tomatoes, its seabass, and ‘papillote’ using silver foil, even its rain-soaked paving, all of it shone. So, I took some photographs and swore to return with a truck and a full wallet.
