Paris Markets: Part 5

Rue Lepic

This is my favorite food street in Paris. Not technically a market, Rue Lepic is a market street. I lived a few blocks away from Rue Lepic when I spent a month in Paris last January. My apartment now is much closer to the center of Paris, so when I returned to Montmartre for a visit I planned to buy groceries at all my favorite shops. Two metros and two cloth bags brought me to Rue Lepic and the realization that I am truly food centric. I might obsess about spending twenty euros for a beautiful scarf, but think nothing of purchasing quality food products without batting an eyelash or asking "C'est combien?". My visit to Rue Lepic took me to the Boulangerie, The Cave de Abessess, Les Rotisseurs du Roy for my all-time favorite rotisserie chicken and chicken onion sausages, to the best cheese shop in Paris, and to the Cafe des 2 Moulin, also known as the Amelie Cafe because many scenes in the film Amelie were filmed here. On the day I came I purchased:
1 chicken sandwich at Josse--the fantastic epicerie and charcuterie place (I was starving)
1 rotisserie chicken
2 onion chicken sausages
2 pork ribs
some pomme terres (potatoes)
mushrooms
two cheeses (one blue, one runny camembert)
a bottle of wine
and (but of course) one baguette.
I still have more markets to visit, and the Christmas markets will open later in November, but it's going to be hard for any market or market street to surpass Rue Lepic.
