A morning walk through St Germain - Paris Part 2
My last morning in Paris took me across the Seine to the Left Bank and the St Germain area. I found it to be quite an "upmarket" and residential area and lovely to walk along in the warm sunshine. Naturally I went the wrong way when I came out of the Metro, but hey that is part of the fun of finding your way around a new place ;-) and it lead me to find things I may not otherwise have found....now this walk is food orientated so it may be best to read this after you have eaten.
Boulevard Raspail - the central reservation of the road had these lovely wrought iron circles at intervals with flowers which I though were rather pretty.
A close up of one of the beautiful pink standard roses.
On my erroneous route I came upon a small fresh food market - it was just in the middle of the road on the central reservation! I love these markets as you know and for me it was a first to find a proper one in Paris - after all these years they DO exist!!
Every meat/sausage under the sun...
Lots of cheese...
The lovely artisan breads....
Asparagus Season in full swing - look at the tiny ones at the front!!
Lovely colourful fresh vegetables
Leaving the market I carried on my walk and found a couple of specialist shops...firstly Barthelemy is a specialist goats cheese shop...
...but I really wanted to buy the little goats in the window..but they are not for sale!
There was a beautiful cake shop - Dalloyau - if I ever I lose my job I think I'd like to learn the art of the patissiere in France!
How is this for a macaroon!
And finally the pasta maker...
I hope you had a nice gourmet walk through St Germain with me!
