african market

It’s a amazing multicultural area in Paris, with a mix of people from Africa, Asia and the Middle East with shops and stalls selling fruit, vegetables and food products from mainly French-speaking African countries it seems. I bought two different types of flour, and a vegetable I’ve never seen before… I’m hoping to make hybrid crêpes with fried plantain, which I also found there, for dinner… It’s a Paris experience I recommend, full of food and life, and loads of textiles, barber shops and nail salons… A contrast and world away from the stereotypical Parisian old world.
