I love open air markets. Almost every neighborhood in Paris has traveling markets offering a large variety of fruits, vegetables, meat, fish, cheeses, flowers, etc. I especially enjoy watching the vendors who prepare each item on demand - meaning that they will fillet your fish, or prepare your quails, or slice your meat to your exact specifications.

Yesterday on my way to lunch I wandered through a nearby market and was surprised by the variety of items for sale. No need to cook; you can find lots of prepared foods. Want paella for dinner? Or steaming choucroute garni (sauerkraut and sausages)? You'll find it here.

There were lots of non-food items too. How about a new hat for spring?

Or an authentic Panama hat?

Maybe a carpet?

Or African art?

I thought of Carol Fier who has one of these gadgets for slicing vegetables!
