10th edition of traditional French Market

12th to 16th of July 2017



pict Dear friends of the French market,

Just like every year, we simply can’t wait to launch the ninth French Market on Kampa Island. It’s just six days until we meet again in excellent spirits, with great wine and lots of other delicacies. What can we reveal about this year’s market?

To start with I should probably mention that the French markets mature like a fine wine, and their reputation has gone beyond the borders of the Czech Republic for their French gastronomy.

Since January, we’ve been receiving queries about the markets from Germany, Austria, Italy, England and Russia… Some guides have even included us in their programmes for visitors to Prague!

What gave us the greatest joy was when we received a request from an engaged couple, who wanted to organise their wedding toast at our market. Because we know a number of people who got to know one another at our market, we instinctively decided that this year’s theme will be “La vie en rose/Life Through Rose-Tinted Glasses”. Why? Because it is during these simple moments of happiness that time slows down, we can taste a good wine, have time to talk, have fun and celebrate. We have time to sample good wines, cheeses and cold meats. Moreover, we can also find pink in wine, Champagne, sparkling wines and even macaroons! Isn’t rosé also the colour of summer wines?

As every year we look forward to meeting you all, and as concerns this year’s new attractions (yes, yes, there’s a lot of them), then check out our web site for exhibitors and the programme.

See you soon, the entire markets team!
