Traditional Market: Part of the French way of life

The New Concept traditional French Market for Fresh foods in Singapore opens its door for you with fresh fish, seafood, meat, cheeses and a lot more...
In Countries like the UK and the USA, the market is largely a tradition that has been revived, in the form of “Farmers markets”; in France, the tradition did not need to be revived as traditional fruit and vegetable markets, as well as markets offering a much wider array of stalls, have always remained a part of life in France. The market as a source of fresh fruits, vegetables, fish and seafood is an integral part of France’s famed tradition of good eating.
And for that reason, it is as authentic an experience as one can wish to find now in Singapore!
The ideal place for people to come together and enjoy the best fresh products shipping directly from France and even others Mediterranean/ European countries!

INTRODUCTION OF CONCEPT IDEA

Most towns and large villages have a large market once a week; but in larger towns, markets may take place twice a week, or even every day. Typical French markets are a mix between the farmers' market and a traders' market, with stalls offering local produce straight from the farm standing alongside fruit and vegetable stalls, cheese stalls and other stalls offering a full range of produce. Even in Paris, fruits and vegetable markets can be found in every district of the city.

The largest markets in provincial France are often known as fairs (foires): as in the olden days, French fairs are traditional extended markets that take place perhaps once or twice a year, on the local saint's day for instance. In a few places, they take place once a month. Most of them used to be livestock markets, but that aspect of them has largely disappeared; today they are expanded versions of large weekly markets that attract more traders from a wider area; there will usually be an eclectic and colourful array of ironmongers, clothes stalls, large organic produce stalls, craft stalls, plus the normal range of fruit and vegetable sellers and much more. In rural areas, there is often a small funfair too.

Foires are big events in a local calendar, and it is always a good idea to check with the local tourist office to find out when they take place.

Virtually every French town has its covered market (marché couvert), which is a permanent structure, occupied by an array of market stalls; in a classic "marché couvert", sometimes called "Les Halles", most of the stalls will sell fresh fruit and vegetables, and some of the stall-holders will also be local market-gardeners, selling their own produce among other products imported from further afield. There is often a cluster of good restaurants to be found close to the covered market in a French town, and chefs will each morning pay a visit and bring back boxes of the freshest fruit and vegetables.

Other stalls are likely to include butchers, bakers, and delicatessens offering specialities from other countries such as Vietnam, Spain, or Italy. In Paris, fruits and vegetable markets spring up on the pavements under the trees beside wide boulevards on different days of the week, often on Saturday or Sunday morning.

Singapore has a thriving food scene where many varieties of cuisine from around the world can be found here. However, there is no traditional market where you can find a variety of Mediterranean/European fresh products and we propose to establish a traditional market that will showcase foods from an array of regions spanning from Southern Europe to North Africa to the Middle East at the best affordable price.

In order to deliver to guests a complete “French Feeling experience at The Market, we propose to partnership with the best Foods and beverages suppliers in Singapore.
