We visited the the Marché Bastille's at Boulevard Richard Lenoir. It is held twice a week. If you are feeling totally lost, wondering where to start, here is a simple guide to help you eat your way through the sprawling food stalls. Let me tell you what is interesting here from a foreigner’s viewpoint (more specifically, a South East Asian girl).
1. Try some cheese. Especially goat cheese. There are usually free samples abundant. They made desserts out of cheese too using tropical fruits.
2. Shell out fresh oysters, then sip white wine right out of the shell.
3. Eat some Crepes.
4. Buy baguettes, chocolate au pain and croissants.
5. Try assorted olives and some pickled fruits or garlic. You might be surprised.
6. Go to the seafood stalls.
7. Grab some Canelés.
8. Get to know some new vegetables and fruits.
9. Cured salami. Nice to look at but I’ll stay away.
10. Look for ethnic and savory food. I remember seeing a long line for a Paella stall.
