To Market, To Market...

Milly La Foret! It sounds like the name of a stripper. Actually, it is a charming little town close to Fontainebleau, about 100 km southeast of Paris. Milly is noted for her amazing marketplace, built in 1479. Fans of surrealistic, fantastic art will want to visit "The Cyclops."

Milly is a short drive from Paris-- less than 45 muinutes when it is not rush hour.

    After 1500 fun fairs and 25,000 markets it's a minor miracle the wooden Milly La Foret still exists. Vive Royal Largesse

    The massive oak pillars had me thinking about being under the boardwalk again...or maybe it was the allusion to the stripper. ;)

    Another good page with nice photos. Nice village even though there is no stripper there ;)

    I love these small French towns. Especially with names that sound like a stripper:)

    Very nice page. I used to live not too far from Milly. Did you see the Chapelle St. Blaise which was decorated by Jean Cocteau? It's a MUST :)
