Fall French Market
OH LÀ LÀ! QUEL MARCHÉ!
The Lycée Français de Chicago invites you to its 8th Annual Fall French Market—a weekend festival packed with fun family activities, French cooking demonstrations, and holiday shopping opportunities!
Get inspired and infuse a little global flair into your holiday cooking! Renowned Chicago-area chefs serve up free cooking demos with recipes ideal for entertaining. Drop the kids at the children’s pavilion while you shop! Here, children ages 3 through 10 are well supervised as they enjoy magic, music, and other exciting activities.
Last year’s market attracted more than 3,000 visitors from all over the Chicagoland area. An array of nearly 100 vendors participate each year, selling the best of French & local merchandise and cuisine. Visitors enjoy live French music while dining on bœuf bourguignon, baguettes, freshly made crêpes. Everyone finds this weekend a unique opportunity to shop for the finest French wares, one-of-a-kind home décor items, art & antiques, local artisans’ jewelry, clothing, and more.
This event solely relies on the meticulous planning and involvement of Lycée parents, staff, and students who help design and organize the event. Proceeds from the Fall French Market supports need-based scholarships and special programs for Lycée students.
The 2012 Fall French Market is scheduled for Friday through Sunday, November 2, 3, and 4. Come see what the excitement is all about!
