Market Hall Foods is throwing its fourth annual Bastille Day Soirée and celebrating all things Français at Rockridge Market Hall from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, July 13.
The festive fete will include tastings of cheese and charcuterie — such as Jambon de Bayonne — as well as Frenchified fun activities and prize giveaways.
The activities include lessons on how to make boudin blanc sausage with folks from Marin Sun Farms; a chance to talk about rosé with the team from Paul Marcus Wines and enjoy discounts on French wine purchases; and special French fare on offer for the holiday.
For instance, attendees can try pissaladière; Montélimar nougat; pates des fruits; Breton butter biscuits; white fishcakes with espelette aioli; salade Niçoise; and — at Hapuku's oyster bar — moules frites (as depicted above).
French products will be offered at special prices throughout July at both Market Hall Foods stores in Oakland and Berkeley. Both stores will also offer tastings all month.
