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. There will be French-inspired homewares and gifts and traditional yummy coated nuts and French crepes of course. You can watch them being made.
The famous photo booth looks a lot of fun with all the props to make you look almost French. Also enjoy free demonstrations, access to French second-hand books, free French trial classes and level assessments.
