Bastille Festival French Christmas Market
This festive French market is offering up an oyster degustation, self-guided wine tours and freshly-cooked crepes.
The Food, Wine and Arts Revolution's Bastille Festival is transforming itself this festive season with French gifts, food and drinks. The four-day festival will run out of the Customs House Forecourt from Friday, December 17 all through the weekend, concluding on Monday, December 20.
All your classic fixtures of a Christmas market will be on the cards, as well as some much-loved elements of the Bastille Festival. Some of the exciting stalls that are coming to the festival are a champagne and oyster bar from Newtown's new wine bar and deli Pistou, French wine tastings and a pop-up creperie.
Pistou's champagne and oyster bar will be offering a street degustation featuring oysters in champagne mignonette, apple and lemon, provencal and a bloody mary mix. Take-home oysters will also be on hand so you can create your own degustation with a few friends over.
The $37 self-guided French wine tasting tour will take you on a journey through five different drops from across the European nation. You'll be fitted with a French passport to get stamps at the market's bars and your own Bastille wine glass.
Entry is free and you can pre-purchase your tickets to the wine tasting tour online.
