Paris -- Summer Fruit

Paris in August can be pretty dull, although it's still Paris and beautiful no matter where you look.

Although the outdoor markets, until today, have been half-empty, you can still find great fruit of all kinds -- melons, peaches white and yellow and (from Spain) flat, watermelon, grapes, figs and my favorites, Reine-Claudes and Mirabelles. I have been gorging on melon and these wonderful plums.

Starting next week, all is open and there is still great fruit. But alas, I will be returning to New York. But the fruit, corn and tomatoes available in New York are pretty terrific, too, this time of year.
