After the success of our beloved Marché de Noël, we are excited to announce the first edition of our Summer Market!

Visit our renovated Beaux Arts-style mansion, sip on complimentary rosé piscine or grenadine, and shop our beautiful array of French-inspired jewelry, housewares, French books, gourmet treats, and more. There is something for everyone!

Free face painting for kids and corn hole will be available outside if weather permits.

Remember to enter our FREE raffle for a chance to win a fabulous gift for you or your loved ones.

Free for members and children under the age of 10, $5 for non-members.
Members must present an email from Bruna, our membership manager for free admission and to take advantage of discounts offered by our merchants.
Please note: Backpacks and strollers will be prohibited.

Getting here:

Boston's Gay Pride Parade falls on June 10th, the same day as our Summer Market. The route map can be found here. This route (Clarendon --> Tremont --> Berkeley --> Boylston --> Charles) will be closed along with all of the intersecting roadways that cross the parade route. The staging/assembly area for the parade and floats will be along Boylston Street between Dartmouth Street and Hereford Street and this area will be reopened between 10 am and 11am. The parade starts at 11 AM on Boylston and Clarendon.

The Boston Transportation Department gives the following advice for those coming to our building: "access the area north of Boylston Street, east of Cambridge Street / Tremont Street and west of Massachusetts Avenue".

Become a French Library Member so you can enjoy the many benefits of membership on the day of Le Marché and throughout the year. Memberships can be purchased in advance either online or during Le Marché. Our memberships also make great gifts for the Francophiles in your life!

This year's fine merchants and artisans include Louis Sel, Boutique de Soie, Olive and Branch, Za'atar Road, Provence Wine Import, Colette Bakery, Decolores Houseware, Sonia Jacobson pastries, KMG Foods and more!
