...hope you like food photos, because I'm honoring the shops on Rue Montorgueil today.....
when I remember my walk down this street last September, I want to move there this minute just so I could shop there everyday...reminiscent of my Geneva days when I shopped for fresh produce in my little neighborhood market each day for that evening's meal. It's all about buying local, fresh, seasonal, and eating right away.
.... my meals would be soooo good. (I eat pretty good right now, but I'm sure I would be more inspired)
The rue starts at L'eglise Saint-Eustache in the 1st arrondissement and ends in the 2nd arrondissement near where Les Halles once was, before they tore it down. The rue is quite lengthy with shops on each side, there are even more shops on the side streets too.

Two bloggers I've been following have just posted "the Men of Rue Montorgueil", you can read what they have to say, and see great photos of the men who own and work the shops, too. Start with www.littlebrownpen.com/people/the-men-of-montorgueil/ , after that one, try this site www.lostincheeseland.com it's the February 29, 2012 posting on her blog. I'm envious of them...they can go there when they want because they live there!
Now sit back and enjoy a few of the photos I took while meandering up Rue Montorgueil.....
