Fresh aromas, vivid colours, buzzing crowds - a mere stroll among the stands of the Batignolles food market is enough to invigorate the senses and whet the appetite. Fruit and veg have pride of place, but the fifty-odd stalls run the gamut from pâtés and cold meats to bath soaps, makeup and essential oils, with a particularly enticing sideline in fine wines. As with its rival Brancusi, this market also keeps things authentic, providing a rare forum for the consumer to meet the producer. Don’t confuse it with its similarly named neighbour, which doesn’t deal in organic goods (though it does have one standout venue in the form of the Japanese stall Onigiriya).
