April showers, April flowers
April showers, April flowers, April market produce that sings of “spring”…
As everyone knows April is the month in Paris when “thrill” rhymes with “chill” (I’m quoting from my own book about Paris…).
Spring greenery is not only beautiful, it’s edible: fresh tender baby peas, artichokes, asparagus… fresh fruit from the four corners of the globe (locavores must pardon Parisians: the city is north of Montreal and we don’t get much to eat if we don’t ship it in during cold months).
Our favorite markets: Boulevard Richard Lenoir (Bastille, 4th/11th arrondissements), Marche’ d’Aligre (12th arrondissement), Marche’ Biologique Raspail (organic market, 6th arrondissement).
