FRENCH MARKET, KILLARNEY HEIGHTS: A DAY IN FRANCE

 

Enjoy a piece of France at the French Market in Killarney Heights this November.

Join thousands of Francophones and Francophiles from Sydney and surrounding areas at Killarney Heights Public School’s oval for a great day of food, fashion, homewares, small vintage furniture, a historical re-enactment, music and huge rides, at the 15th annual French Market on Sunday 10th November.

Browse over 70 stalls of French items such as saucissons, foie-gras, pâtés and other terrines; macarons, croissants, baguettes; French cheeses; books, magazines, DvDs and Blu-Rays in French language; jewellery and fashion accessories inspired by French culture; French vintage small furniture and poster reproductions; and so on. This market is also a festival to celebrate all things French with food to eat on site such as a merguez (sausage) barbecue, raclette, sweet and savoury crêpes, French fries, waffles and croque-monsieurs, while listening to some French music in the background. Rides, games and face painting will enchant the younger crowd.

The market attracts an estimated 7000 visitors per year, and members of FANS (The French-speaking Association of the North Shore) will be baking up a storm and donating quiches, cakes and other treats to be sold at the market and raise funds for the French-English bilingual program run at the school.
