Take Me Back

…  to Paris, where these roses were perfectly displayed at Marché d’Aligre, an open air market in the 12th arrondissement. You don’t want to sleep in; this market is open Tuesdays to Sundays, from 8:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Unless you’re already in the 12th, take the Métro to Ledru-Rollin and walk to Place d’Aligre.

The market (marché) runs from rue Crozatier to rue de Charenton, and there are dozens of vendors. Just looking at these beauties, I’m basking again in the late morning sun, listening to the friendly exchange of a range of voices and accents, and biting in to a ripe, juicy peach.
