Marché Bastille, or the Bastille Farmer’s Market, is one of the largest Parisian food markets offering an abundance of mouthwatering produce. Open twice a week, it draws large crowds to its 50+ open-air, specialized food stands selling the very best in produce, breads, cheeses, meats and seafood. 

Physical travel may be on hold for the time being, but celebrating summer’s produce can transport our senses globally. If you were a Parisian resident, this would be the menu you create to celebrate summer’s peak produce as the days get longer, and the evenings get warmer.
