Nelson goes to Paris — French Extra Market held Saturday

Just a few blocks up from Baker Street, one can take a trip to Paris today.

Croissants and other delicious French pastries, art, buskers and music are all some of the features of the second French Extra Market.

Shop at La rue des Artisans or stop for a picture in front of l’Église Sacré-Coeur de Montmartre all while listening to French ballads playing in the background.

The French Extra Market is part of a Canada-wide week called “Les Rendez-vous de la francophonie” held in March every year.

Taking place in Hart Hall on 501 Carbonate Street, the market continues until 4 p.m. It is hosted by AFKO and admission is by donation.
