Join thousands of Francophones and Francophiles from Sydney and surrounding areas at Killarney Heights Public School’s oval for a great day of food, fashion, homewares, small vintage furniture, a historical re-enactment, music and rides, at the 14th annual French Market in Killarney Heights on Sunday 4th November 2018 from 9am-4pm.

This year, the 1er d’Artillerie de La Marine Inc., a French naval artillery re-enactment group, will delight visitors with full Napoleonic uniforms and engaging historical displays.  They will join 60+ stalls of professional merchants selling French items such as saucissons, foie-gras, pâtés and other terrines; macarons, croissants, baguettes; French cheeses; books, magazines, DVDs and Blu-Rays in French language; jewellery and fashion accessories inspired by French culture; French vintage small furniture and poster reproductions, and so on.

This market is also a festival to celebrate all things French with food to eat on site such as a merguez (sausage) barbecue, raclette, sweet and savoury crêpes and croque-monsieurs while listening to some French music in the background. Rides, games and face painting will enchant the younger crowd. It promises to be a fabulous social or family outing!

A number of well-known French patisseries and providers from all over Sydney are supplying the market which attracts an estimated 7000 visitors per year, while members of FANS (The French-speaking Association of the North Shore) are channelling their inner Manu Feildel by baking up a storm and donating quiches, cakes and other treats to be sold at the market and raise funds for the French-English bilingual program run at the school.

ABOUT FANS (French-speaking Association of the North Shore)

FANS was created in 1998 by French families settling in Sydney’s North Shore area. More than 100 families are current members.

The French-English bilingual program of Killarney Heights Public School has attracted many families to the Forestville/Killarney Heights area. French-speaking families enjoy being at a school where they can be part of the Australian community and where their children can progress in French. Many English-speaking Australian families are also attracted to the school as their children can get exposure to a second language, which has recognised educational benefits.
