Terroirs d’avenir ?

Would like to visit the place, it might be a good opportunity to explore interesting and "more special" ingridients, that i guess will not be part of the different markets in the city. Will be nice to buy some stuff there and prepare at apartment. Would be glad to read opinions on the place, what special things can be found there and the prices level.. Thx !

  1. It's a small selection, dependent on the day, I imagine. I thought it would be more overwhelming. I wasn't particularly tempted, especially after my typical stop at Joel Theibault's stand at the Pres. Wilson market.

      Thanks Nancy. Each trip i'm telling myself to visit that stand in Pre. Wilson, and eventually something comes up and i'm not there :-) Maybe it's about time.. What do you like to buy there and prepare from it ?

        Well, that depends on the season. But the lettuces, potatoes, squash, carrots, parsnips, tomatoes, etc. are all excellent. And, at the other end of the market is Jacky Lorenzo with the most stunning fish. I've bought brilliant scallops, langoustines, shrimp, cod, etc. there.

          Great, thanks a lot :-) I will pass there next week, in the past i was very impressed, and enjoyed a lot, the marche vinceness, it looked as if it was sort of "summery" of all other weekly markets.. Isn't it suppose to be more or less the same produce overall in different locations ? Somehow that was the feeling.. Jacky Lorenzo sounds great, exactly what i need, excellent seafood source.

            I also love the Sunday Raspail organic market, where I buy just-laid eggs, brilliant produce and lovely fruits.

              Nice market indeed, and a great way to open Sunday morning.. I was surprised with the bakeries and "pancakes" stands there, pretty good stuff.
