If you have been following along with the Paris Agenda you would know one of my goals was to find a market basket. Visiting the market in Paris is something I really love to do. I don’t always buy a lot but I love observing what is for sale and what fruits and vegetables are in season. I make it part of my weekly routine. My favorite market to visit is the Bastille Market and it is partly because it really is a fabulous market but also because it holds a lot of good memories.
This trip around I really wanted to get a market basket for my weekly visits. Since I was living in an apartment close it was a great opportunity to pick up some fresh fruits and of course peonies. I was lucky enough having a little help with finding the perfect basket. I asked my friend Magali and she had her eye out. After lunch one day we made a trip to this Droguerie at the end of rue de buci. There are a few of these in Paris. You can also find one on rue cler.
This map should help you if you want to find the exact location in Paris:
There are so many different options: short straps, long straps, and baskets. I opted for the long steps so I could put it over my shoulder. It was around 30 euros this should help you budget in finding your own.
If you can’t make it to Paris but still want a basket here are a few options:
Now that I know where to find them I have basket envy and I want a few more. Hopefully next trip I will find room in my suitcase. Happy hunting and I hope this helps!
