French Markets Crossing the Channel

France at Home has been bringing Normandy traders across the Channel for over 20 years. There are other companies working in this field – the thought of going to a genuinely French market on the doorstep is very appealing, but I gather France at Home  is the only one to be a member of Franco-British chamber of commerce & industry.

*By the way, when you are in France you can tell the quality of bread on offer by the way the bread shop descibes itself.

A bakery is only allowed to be called a boulangerie if it selects its own flour, kneads its own dough and bakes the loaves on the premises.

Point chaud  refers to chains that serves frozen baguettes that are reheated on site.

Dépot de pain is a bread shop  that buys in bread, whether fresh or reheated, from a supplier.
