Buying food at the market

Of course, un kilo de – a kilo of – and une livre de – 500 grams – is the most common way to buy fruit and vegetables. However, at the market, you might have to buy:

  • a bunch of asparagus -- une botte d’asperges
  • a head of lettuce -- une tête de salade
  • a bar of chocolate -- une tablette de chocolat
  • a basket of strawberries -- une barquette de fraises
  • garlic cloves -- des gousses d’aïl
  • an ear of corn -- un épi de maïs
  • a stick of butter -- une plaquette, une motte de beurre
  • mussels -- un litre de moules - not very much used anymore, as mussels as now sold "au kilo" or by the bag
