Bucolic flower picking in the middle of Paris

 Bucolic flower picking in the middle of Paris

Grab your prettiest basket and make a beeline for the Docks where 100% typically Parisian flower picking is taking place.

Chic and bucolic, the Cité de la Mode et du Design is scattering the 600 plants from the monumental flower venue that was displayed in the main hall since Summer.

For 2 or 5€, pick out a flower or a tropicool two-headed Dragon branch, creation of vegetal designer Alexis Tricoine. You will be sure to bring back home a great composition.

We like: a green and charity operation, because benefits from the dismantling will be donated to the Envol Ver association, dedicated to protecting the tropical forest and biodiversity.

Flower market at the Docks, Wednesday the 4th of November from 11am to 7pm, free access. Count 2-5€.
