Kazana: Kazana

Kazana is a cool boutique shop selling scarves, jewelry, handbags, hats, and other fashion accessories in exotic crafts from around the globe (Berber, Indian, Mayan, Moroccan, Tibetan wares).

I took the photos at their previous location on 15, rue Vieille du Temple (which is now closed) and shopped at the one in the Latin Quarter (rue Soufflot - but that one is closed, as well as the one on rue Mouffetard) where I tried to buy a CD titled "French Cafe"; unfortunately, they were out of them. Have no fear, though, as there is a location at 7, rue Lagrange in the 5th arrondissement along with locations in:
Île St-Louis (52, rue St-Louis-en-l'Île)
St-Germain-des-Prés (115, rue de Rennes)
Montmartre (10, rue de Steinkerque)
in the 20th arrondissement east of Place de la Nation (30, rue Plaine)

There are several locations throughout other areas of France and in Belgium.

What to buy Scarves, jewelry, pretty pens, paper products, CDs

Androuët: Say Cheese !

France has more than 365 sorts of cheese.
Except if you are lactose intolerant, you can't seriously visit Paris without tasting some.

While most Parisians buy their cheese at the closest fromager/affineur or market, a good address to know is Androuët, with several stores over Paris (even if the oldest one (opened in 1909), rue d'Amsterdam is now gone).
They have a a really big/good choice of non industrial cheese and the shop assistants know their stuff and will be able to recommend you something matching your tastes and complementing your dishes.

Most tourists will come across the store rue Mouffetard, but there are other addresses.
The stores are open from tuesday to saturday and the sunday morning. The one rue des Belles-Feuilles is open monday afternoon too.

What to buy You can buy cheese buy slice, by piece or purchase gift boxes or baskets containing assorted cheeses.

(a good site about french cheeses :

What to pay From 2€ to several hundreds (generally between 20€ and 50€ for a selection).
The prices are not the cheapest (but neither the highest) and the quality is superb.

Picturesque shopping street

The Rue Mouffetard is allready a very old street. In Roman times it was the mainroad from Paris to Rome. This narrow street with its old-fashioned signboards and mansarde roofs from the 17th century has kept much of its special character.

I enjoyed to walk down this street and have a look at its shops and in the morning at its market. In the Rue Mouffetard and its side-streets you can find also rather cheap restaurants, where you can have a good lunch.

Markets & shops

Every morning, except at mondays, you can visit the picturesque market in the Rue Mouffetard in Quartier Latin. It's one of the oldest markets in Paris.

At the market with its colourful stalls and in the shops you can find all kind of food and specialities, like cheese, meat, vegetables, fruits and more. Here in the Rue de Mouffetard it was for the first time in my life I saw a streetstall with ducks.

Shops and Market Stalls: Rue Mouffetard

One of the most ancient, picturesque, 'slice of Parisian life' market streets is the rue Mouffetard street market. BTW, the street's name was taken from the word 'mofette' meaning tanning smells that used to come from the tanners located nearby in the old days. If you head up to the Pantheon via rue Soufflot, keep walking until you reach the rue L'Homond, and turn left onto the rue Pot de Fer, you will find the heart of the rue Mouffetard.

It's a long cobblestoned street, winding its way downhill. On either side of this narrow street are numerous stalls selling mostly produce. But you will also find shops and restaurants of all types: Greek, Chinese, Italian, Spanish, and, of course, French restos, patisseries, rotisseries, fromagerie, boulangeries, marche du vin, chocolatier, marche du fruits de mer.

It's a very atmospheric street, still very classic if you want to see how the Parisians go about their daily shopping rituals. And it's a wonderful place to buy food to take back to your hotel room. Think: inexpensive lunch or snack! You've got everything available to buy here for a meal.

BTW, you know that you're getting close to the fromagerie as the fragrance of the cheeses permeates the outdoors! ;)

N.B.: Visit early to mid-morning on a Saturday; it's the best time!

What to buy Any type of fresh and prepared foods: cheeses, pastries, chocolates, bread, fruits, roasted chickens and potatoes. And please do not forget to buy a bottle of wine to go with all that delicious food! Be sure you have a wine opener though!! Glasses you can probably get in your hotel room.

What to pay As much or as little as you want depending on the cost of what you want to buy

Place Monge Market: Best Foie Gras

Place Monge has markets on Wed, Fri and Sun. It is not a large area, but there is lots of stuff available. Whether you buy or not, it is fun to browse and sometimes engage the sellers. The guy in the picture was a very good salesman. He kept offering samples of his foie gras and we kept eating. I ended up buying a couple of small tins to bring home.
