Paris Markets

Markets are an essential part of Paris life and we had the pleasure of visiting several Sunday morning. We began the day at the lle-de-Cite flower market. But on Sunday it turns into a live bird market. There were hundreds of birds from canaries and finches to more unusual birds that I didn't recognize. There was a bird of whatever color you could desire and some beautiful antique-style cages as well.

Next we enjoyed great roasted chicken and zucchini gratin in Le Marche des Enfants Rouges, the city's oldest food market. And to end our market excursion, we strolled through the bustling market near the Bastille. I only wish we had time to visit more of them, like maybe the one with the vintage handbags!
