Last weekend Soldier’s Memorial Gardens in Unley transformed into a French wonderland, providing those of us who couldn’t quite afford a trip to Paris with the next best thing. The annual Bonjour Adelaide French Markets (hosted by Alliance Française d’Adelaïde) is a free community event that aims to showcase the best of French culture in all its forms for us Adelaidians.
This year’s market certainly delivered, with stalls exhibiting French-inspired products including homewares, jewellery, arts and crafts, and of course, all of the wine you could possibly want. The markets also featured an impressive spread of food stalls, including North Adelaide’s Cliché Exhibition and Hyde Park’s Mulots Patisserie.
As if the market stalls weren't enough, assorted entertainment was offered throughout the day so you could enjoy some live music or a cooking demonstration while sippin’ on that wine and downing croissants like there’s no tomorrow.
If you missed this year’s event don’t despair, these vibrant markets are set to return bigger and better next year. In the meantime, you can stay up to date with other events hosted by AF Adelaide via their website.
