I was a little underwhemled by the French Market when I dropped by on Tuesday. Docklands regularly has this type of market, and I had quite high expectations. The market felt busy but a bit small in comparison to previous events in Docklands.
Perhaps my opinion was influenced by the deeply boring hotdog I got from "Charcoal BBQ". The stand is blue and white and well worth avoiding. There are lots of excellent food options available in the French Market; this isn't one of them.
To be fair however I should say that since the arrival of the Belem the market's atmosphere has picked up nicely. And earlier today Donnybrook Fair hosted a wine and food reception on board the ship - very nice idea.
