When the spot behind Cafe Provence opened up in the Village Shopping Center in Prairie Village, its owners, the Quillec family, jumped at the chance to open French Market to sell the restaurant’s wares.

Browse the warm and colorful shop’s selection of French cookbooks, tablecloths, wrapping paper, soaps, imported French sauces, condiments and candies. Step toward the back of the store and you’ll find a large refrigerated case full of Cafe Provence grab-and-go items from salads and side dishes to entrées and desserts that make for quick and tasty meals.

You can pick up excellent baguettes here as well. Grab a jar of the shop’s la daube de boeuf, a filet mignon-red wine stew with sliced carrots, or cassoulet made with duck confit, sausage and white beans.

Come in on Saturdays from 9:30am to 2:30pm when the shop makes authentic French crêpes to enjoy at one of the tables located in the front of the store. Try la complete crêpe filled with ham and Swiss cheese – and be sure to order yours with a “runny egg,” or sunny-side up egg, on top.
