Have a French Chic Christmas Experience


There is a host of different multi-cultural markets on in Melbourne before Christmas. There is the ever popular Swedish Christmas Bazaar, a host of popular German Christmas markets in November but don't forget the French, who always know how to do a chic Christmas.

The well-known Alliance Francaise is more than a language school in a beautiful old mansion in St Kilda. Rather, it is a venue that celebrates French culture throughout the year.

They run a whole weekend of French-related Christmas stalls and events over two-day which is free to attend. Expect lots of French food such as cheeses, wines, pates, sausages and terrines. They'll be French-inspired homewares and gifts and traditional yummy coated nuts and French crepes of course. You can watch them being made.

The market showcases French products, but also includes those made by French designers living in Australia, so you are likely to find that unique Christmas gift you are looking for.
