In France, I was in charge of grocery shopping. I didn’t mind. Exploring supermarkets, browsing market stalls, (re)discovering products and studying food trends is fun when you are abroad.

One thing I notice was how expensive produce is in France compared to Canada. I saw green beans for €9.50/kilo, avocadoes were usually between €1 and €2 and even potatoes were pricey by my standards.

Last week, we took a walk at the Byward Market in Ottawa. The weather was beautiful, the few streets around the market were packed with tourists and all the vendors were here. I couldn’t help stopping in front of each stall—everything looked so fresh, so good! I bought broccoli, carrots and tomatoes and I could taste the difference. These hadn’t been picked long ago and kept frozen, unlike the supermarket kind.

Yay to fresh summer salads!

  1. I so want to eat all of those berries! And corn on the cob! Oh how I miss it! It was always such a treat when I was younger, and I still love it to this day.

  2. Check out the Westboro Market too if you didn’t already…it gets better every week as we get closer to harvest season.
