The MEP, Missions Etrangères de Paris, are organizing their Christmas market from December 6 to 9, 2023. You too can support the MEP missions in Thailand, India, Burma, South Korea and Madagascar with a gift that makes sense!

Looking for a Christmas Market in Paris that's both original and supportive ? Head for the cour des MEP, in the 7th arrondissement, to discover an event on a human scale, brimming with beautiful handicrafts. From December 6 to 9, 2023, 128 rue du Bac will play host to the traditional Missions Étrangères de Paris Christmas Market and its original gift ideas from around the world.

There, discover a fine selection of Malagasy, Khmer, Thai and Indian crafts, cribs, wooden religious statues, jewelry, zebu horn combs and Christmas tablecloths. An opportunity to get your hands on some unusual gifts, while supporting MEP and other associations working in Asia.
But that's not all! Many other activities are on the program, including concerts and creative workshops for children.
On Friday, December 8, take part in a Chinese painting demonstration from 3 to 4 pm, and in a Tamil calligraphy and mandala workshop at the same time on Saturday, December 9.
And if you're feeling peckish, take a gourmet break at the ephemeral tea room run by the Dekopon Club association, offering Japanese specialities from 12pm to 5pm.

From Madagascar to the Indonesian border of Papua New Guinea, or from Jakarta to Sapporo, the MEP has carried out numerous missions since the 17th century. So don't miss this Christmas shopping event over the 4 days of December!
