After lunch we checked out the Thailand festival at Trocadero. Very crowded, so we didn't stay too long. We walked over to Rue Cler, another market street that we like, not far from the Eiffel Tower, but managed to keep our money in our pockets.
By law every boulangerie in France must offer a baguette for 1 euro or less - apparently the French did learn something from their revolution. These inexpensive baguettes are made in factories and not very exciting. However, the artisan boulangeries also offer baguettes de tradition, baguettes made with a premium flour and using traditional methods. These cost just a little more, but usually less than €1.30. Needless to say, we spend the extra few cents to get the traditional baguettes. Today's baguette cost us €1.15. The traditional baguettes usually have pointed ends and the center has lots of air pockets. In the photo you can see the cloth bag we take with us to carry our grocery purchases home.
We didn't buy any cheese today because we have some left over from yesterday.
