A range of French regional specialties and products are presented in a setup similar to a typical French marketplace – it is an ideal place to start on your cultural journey, and shop like you’re in France!

It is also a great opportunity to speak to the French booth owners and get insightful culinary tips, or even have a casual chat to learn more about their culture.
