Ealing saw the return of the popular French Market held by France at Home today, selling the finest French food and wine.

Muriel Charles, manager at France at Home, organised the highly anticipated event for the second time this year, for locals to enjoy a taste of authentic French cheeses, bread and more until next Thursday, 30th June.

The market is run by traders who have been coming to the UK every week to run the stalls since 1994, selling cheese, freshly baked bread, patisserie products and wines.

“The French Market has always been a firm favourite at Ealing Broadway,” said Andrew Rollings, centre director at Ealing Broadway.

“The market is a one-stop-shop for delectable French cuisine and we encourage visitors to stock up on delicious cheese, wines, charcuterie and more."

One of the delicacies recommended by Muriel was a kangaroo saucisson, as well as a fresh French baguette.

“A good variety of wines will be available too, from every part of France. It’s a different quality to what you’ll find at a supermarket,” she added.

“We love sharing our wide range of exciting dishes and native flavours with the community."

English sommelier Eddie McGee will be at the market with a selection of French wines, ranging from an earthy Bordeaux to a fruity Sauvignon Blanc.

Those with a sweet tooth can head to patisserie stalls to find a range of tarts, pastries and macarons.

Despite challenges and additional costs due to Brexit, Muriel and her team continue to work hard to organise these markets across the UK, with the next one heading to Cambridge.

For now, those in London can enjoy summer and a taste of France by heading to the market in the town square in Ealing Broadway Shopping Centre - open every day from Thursday 23rd June until Thursday 30 June, 9.30am-6pm.
