Eat delicious, gourmet produce, browse quality goods, dust off your language skills and enjoy a day to remember infused with all things French!
The 13th annual French Market on Sydney’s northern beaches is back for 2017, bigger and better than ever.
The French Market was started by the French-speaking Association of the North Shore (FANS) and has expanded to up to 70 stalls this year.
The market, now in its 13th year, is an event that draws francophiles, families and lovers of gourmet produce and fine French goods from all over Sydney.
Last year, an estimated 7000 visitors came through the doors.
It is organised so that visitors can enjoy it as a social or family outing, but also do their Christmas shopping.
There will be quality French linen tableware, artisan jewellery, ceramics, clothing, bags, books, children’s room décor, vintage posters and more.
As well as quality gifts, market-goers can fill their basket with delicious French bread, pâtés and terrines, saucissons, cheeses, pastries, chocolates and cakes to take home.
All of this will be to a backdrop of French music, dance performances, a French-style “merguez” barbeque, crêpes and for the kids – games, face painting and fairy floss.
*Continuing our efforts to ‘green’ the French market, this year we have introduced a ban on plastic bags. There will also be keep coffee cups available and recycling stations.
The market is organised by FANS, The French-speaking Association of the North Shore, a not-for-profit association. All proceeds go to the French-English bilingual program of Killarney Heights Public School.
