Self-service picking is a fun way to get out of the city and enjoy the fresh air. Just minutes away from Paris, you can experience the joy of collecting and picking your own seasonal flowers, fruits and vegetables. There isn’t a fresher way to get your produce, and your wallet will thank you for it too! It’s a nice idea for a family outing, since kids love discovering and tasting fruits and vegetables.
