Something for the Weekend? (20th – 22nd November)

This weekend will be...well, scroll down and find out!

If you have any events or activities you think should be promoted or which you would like to promote yourself, please add them in the comments. Let me know also if you have any events in the coming weekends you would like to promote.

This weekend in Paris will be…

Two large-scale country markets will visit Paris this weekend, helping local gourmets to stock up for Christmas. Producers from the South West of France will set up their stands between the Metro stations of Dausmesnil and Dugommier in the 12th arrondissement on Saturday and Sunday. Expect to find meats, wines and cheeses from this region as well as live music and cooking lessons. If you're lucky, you may even win a weekend in the Correze!
Marché des Producteurs de Pays
21/22 November, Boulevard de Reuilly 9h à 19h
At the Hippodrome de Saint Cloud to the west of Paris you probably won't find horse meat, but you will find the Salon du Terroir de Reuil and 160 producers from all over France.
20-22 November
11am -10pm on Friday, 10am - 9pm Saturday, 10am - 6.30pm Sunday

The Parisians are recent converts to rugby, but now have two teams to follow in the country's top division. The two teams, Racing Club de France and the Stade Français will meet this Saturday afternoon at the home of RCF in Colombes, but the event will be spoiled somewhat by another event taking place across the city at the Stade de France. The French national team are taking on Samoa, meaning that the star players from the capital's club sides, such as the hairy Sebastien Chabal, will be otherwise engaged.

Stade Yves du Manoir, Rue François Faber, Colombes (Le Stade train station).

France v Samoa
Stade de France
Saturday 21st November 6pm

The artistic star of the weekend is the immense Parisphoto exhibition at the Carrousel de Louvre (well, it's not just an Apple Store and a McDonalds..). The exhibition features photos from galleries around the world and gives you the chance to meet and discuss with some well-known photographers.

19th to 22nd November

Environmentally Friendly
If you need a good conscience at the moment, take yourself down to the environmental international film festival. Having said that though, it will probably make you feel even more guilty as all of the film showings are completely free and it's all taking place in the thoroughly charming Pagode cinema!
La Pagode, 57, rue de Babylone 75007
18th to 24th November
