This week across Europe, Christmas markets are springing up in all the big cities. In France, “marchés de Noel” have been traditional holiday spectacles since the 16th century. Today, France has the second largest number of Christmas markets in Europe.
French Christmas markets offer all sorts of local products: Lavender from Provence; soap from Marseille; wines from Bordeaux and Champagne, to name a few, plus all the seasonal goodies: Christmas trees, decorations, lights, short plays and musical performances; and, of course, the arrival of Saint Nicolas, who officially opens the Christmas season.
The very best Christmas markets in the country each have a little extra to draw the crowds. For example, the market in Paris is set-up right in the middle of the business district. In Amiens, famous for its sugary sweets, the event includes a nightly light and sound show projected onto the town’s gothic cathedral. The market in Reims offers plenty of its local champagne, but also has a dry ski slope for visitors to try. In Licques, the market highlights festive food. After a parade of live turkeys through the town center, revelers enjoy a shot of the locally-made spirit, licquoise, before selecting their live bird.

Our Products Highlight the Best of France
Carte Noire began 35+ years ago when Rene Monnier started his own coffee business after years working in the family’s coffee blending and roasting business. The Carte Noire name and the dramatic black and gold packaging were chosen to reflect the sophistication and elegance of the new coffee. We have a range of Carte Noire, including:
Ground coffee: An intense and rich blend made from 100% Arabica beans, including a decaffeinated version
Velours: Sweet and aromatic, as velvety as it sounds
Whole beans: Grind the 100% Arabica beans right before brewing for a rich, aromatic cup
Classique #7: Nespresso-compatible capsules with medium roast beans
L’OR began in 1992 with a mission to create the finest French coffee. We have Classique, an aromatic and lushly balanced medium roast blend in jars of instant and packs of 25 individual sticks of instant.
Top French brand Grand Mère is named after grandma because that’s who knows how to make good coffee. We have ground Dégustation (Tasty) and Familial (Family) roasts in 8.8oz packages.
Maison Du Café is produced by Jacobs Douwe Egberts. Ma Tradition is a combination of Robusta and Arabica coffee beans, roasted in the Douwe Egberts process, which produces a fragrant and balanced medium roast coffee.
