While celebrating Bastille Day, the Alliance Française of Atlanta is also looking ahead to the French Market Atlanta Sept. 9, seeking vendors to sell food and goods at the annual fundraiser inspired by France’s open-air markets. 

The event is set to be held at Buckhead Village, which coincidentally is the home of the Atlanta Christkindl Market, a German holiday affair. The upscale shopping district is also home to French restaurant Le Bilboquet and one of multiple Atlanta locations of St. Germain Bakery, a go-to restaurant for the French community. Anis Cafe and Bistro, another longtime favorite for French cuisine in Atlanta, is just around the corner on Grandview Avenue.

Booths cost $450 for food vendors and $250 for non-food vendors, with a $100 fee for tent rental if needed. Approved vendors are required to donate a $25 item for the silent auction. 

Proceeds raised from the market will benefit the Alliance Française, which provides French cultural programs and language classes for the community in its new home downtown at the Franco-German Cultural Center, in its Roswell center and online.
