Paris markets mode d'emploi

"We heard all about them: The marchand de légumes. The boucher. The fromager. The épicier... How to buy, how not to be taken in, how to get good service... You may think you know how to get the best out of your open-air market, yet we heard tips we had never imagined! After the talk there was a special lunch in the clubroom.

"This was followed at a later date by a talk with slides and taped music on the famous bistros and restaurants of Paris, followed by a bistro meal."
