Itching to travel again in the spring? I want to make sure you see and taste the best France has to offer! When it comes to Paris I’ve got you covered, but there are many other cities with exciting and delicious things for you to experience. So I’ve asked a team of French bloggers from different cities to share their favorite spots, and I am offering them to you in this new series.
In Strasbourg, Frédérique recommends…
After leaving Paris 25 years ago, Frédérique spent 15 years in Alsace and seven in Strasbourg itself. This European capital is a goldmine for a gourmet like her. A textile creator by trade, her motto is to “beautify daily life” and she beautifies her own by spending most of her free time in the kitchen! She shares this culinary passion with the readers of the blog she keeps to document life in her workshop. Where will she take us today?
A market or food shop: The market on Boulevard de la Marne
In the XV-Orangerie neighborhood, this is the largest market in Strasbourg, set up along the Boulevard de la Marne. It’s an authentic, colorful market, filled with an abundance of vendors selling a wide variety of items: produce and food vendors (selling fish, meat, charcuterie, and cheese), stands with honeys, spices, flowers and plants, clothes, shoes, baskets, and kitchen utensils (such as kougelhopf molds and cookie cutters for the traditional Christmas sablés). The market is open on Tuesday and Saturday mornings.
