This is the first time I have made a comment on the internet but as a raving Francophile who loves Paris, having spent 8 months – in two trips – there last year, I am in tears as I read the comments on the Barbes market. It is so much me and up until now Belleville was my favourite but it is so like Barbes it is unbelievable. I had my trips staying in apartments and ate very rarely in restaurants as that amount of time precluded me from doing that – but I still love to read everything you put out on this website – and my grand-son loves your chocolate banana upside-down cake!!
Love this post! I’ve been to the Barbes market years ago and your every detail brought me back! Thank you for sharing your Saturday morning with us!
