Marché d'Aligre - XVI



Marché d'Aligre


This street market in the 12ème is always full of people no matter the weather.

The sounds of the market are lively with the inflections of many languages.  It is a symphony to the ears and the colors are a painting to the eyes.

Wonderful (and I see mimosas are already in bloom)!

This image could have been taken easily at Vienna's Naschmarkt. Don't miss it when you come here,

Hello Genie:
Oh, to have flower stalls such as this here. How we should revel in all that colour.

This looks just like Pikes Street Market in down town Seattle. It is a must see if you are ever visiting Seattle. Open 7 days a week.
Lovely photo.
Connie :)

It may be cold, it may be winter, but the flowers and the colors you have captured are a breath of spring! Gorgeous!!!

L'atmosphère des marchés en plein air est irremplaçable.
Mais en ce moment, il fait trop froid pour apprécier vraiment.

Connie, I love Pikes Market and have been there several times... Love the flower market and the fish market, too!

Lucy, this is the 12ème arrondissement, but it is the sixteenth time I have posted on the Marché d'Aligre - I do love it.

I am on my way home from a business trip and will be catching up with each of you.

Bises,
Genie

In July I will be back to "my" studio next to the Marché d´Aligre. Last year I didn´t make it to the market, but this year it´s definitely on my list again.

J'adore les marchés du monde.
A Paris j'affectionne particulièrement celui de Barbès, sous le pont du métro. On y trouve des ecpèces de légumes que l'on commence gentiment à trouver sur les marchés de chez nous, comme le topinambour.
D'autres variétés exotiques qui ont mis du temps à traverser les frontières, Je ne parle pas des classiques, Mais des légumes bizarres que les tamouls importent depuis que certains ont montés des petits magasins toujours bondés, avec les émigrés de Suisse.

A barbès, j'étais là pour photographier dans la perpective d'une expo de mes colliers où, j'offre toujours en complément, des panneaux décors en rapport avec mes colliers, pour les animer.

Vous pouvez voir les colliers sur mon site, en lien avec mon blog.
