Paris' Mouffetard market in the morning
French markets can be jewel-like in morning like ... and few markets capture it all quite like Paris' Mouffetard market, in the 5th.
Rue Mouffetard is one of Paris' liveliest market streets. On this charming, ancient street (complete with remnant of the city's Roman walls), you can find dozens of artisan bakeries, cheese & pastry shops, plus some of the city's best fruit & veg stands - all without the burden of cars.
Jet lag often has me wandering Paris streets early ... the happy result is typically scenes like this ... before the crowds.
