Foodies and Parnell locals alike know that the place to be on a Saturday morning is at La Cigale French Markets. Every weekend, La Cigale is transformed into a bustling gourmet paradise with stalls heaving with produce straight from the farm, freshly-based pastries and treats, artisan cheeses and much more.

The Fromagerie (that’s a fancy Frenchie word for cheese shop!) has a huge range of European cheeses. French brie, English stilton, Swiss gruyere, Italian gorgonzola and Spanish manchego to name just a few.

Grab a strong coffee from the cafe and stroll around to take in the sights, smells and tastes, then grab something delicious for a brunch treat to eat at one of the large wooden communal tables.

Great place to be. Awesome selection!

What kind of foodie wouldn't love a farmer's market? Make that a French-style farmer's market, and you'll make one foodie shout for joy. La Cigale French Market is a gourmet market located in Parnell, giving locals a taste of France. Open during weekends, La Cigale opens its doors to customers who are looking to buy fresh produce, breads and pastries, pastas, cheeses and meats, organic and processed goods, among other things. You can also enjoy authentic cuisines and snacks from the other stalls while sitting in the communal tables. The weekend market is designed for one to enjoy the sight and smell of fresh goods and breads over brewing coffee in the morning.

The GF loves this place,. Whatever she likes. I like too, (and the coffee, organic veggies and gluten free products aren't bad either)
