Obviously, the busiest merchants today were the ones selling Champagne, Foie gras and oysters. Especially for the oyster merchant as an apprentice had to be trained in urgency to open help opening them. Oysters are a weird delicatessen for the foreign novice, but a way for many to celebrate the last dinner of the decade.
Wish you all a Happy New Year !
