We all love food and the French do it so well. A number of well-known French patisseries and providers from all over Sydney are supplying the markets, so you may need to wear your stretchy pants to fit it all in. Make sure you bring a basket or box as you won't be able to resist buying some take-home items from the mouthwatering selection of delicious French bread, pâtés and terrines, saucissons, cheeses, pastries, chocolates and cakes.

ABOUT FANS (French-speaking Association of the North Shore)
FANS was created in 1998 by French families settling in Sydney's North Shore area. More than 100 families are current members. The French-English bilingual program of Killarney Heights Public School has attracted many families to the Forestville/Killarney Heights area. French-speaking families enjoy being at a school where they can be part of the Australian community and where their children can progress in French. Many English-speaking Australian families are also attracted to the school as their children can get exposure to a second language, which has recognised educational benefits.
