Why French Farmer's Markets are... Better

Farmer's markets in France are different from the ones we have here in the U.S. For starters, they're much more affordable. Shopping at a farmer's market in the states can feel like a real luxury, and often standard items like bread and lettuce are 3x the amount you would pay in the store. 

Furthermore, farmer's markets in the U.S. often only happen on weekends and only offer veggies, a few meats/fishes, and bread products. In other words, they aren't a viable replacement for grocery shopping; you will still have to go to the store if you shop at the farmer's market, and you're probably going to end up spending more overall. 

In France, however, you can find farmer's markets everywhere, any time of week. There are a wide variety of fishes, meats, veggies, fruits, bread, non-perishables, spices, flowers, and more. And the best part is that these markets are actually affordable.
