When I lived in Clamart (Paris suburb - see The Day of the Jackal film opening sequence for more info https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Day_of_the_Jackal_(film) ) many of the traders in the local Saturday fruit market proudly sold "by the pound" or livre.

Quote from: paulinfrance on September 24, 2019, 07:48:51 amI worked in Paris around 1977 and have never seen or heard that,,
Quote from: PDR on September 24, 2019, 10:10:26 amJust for the record, over the years I've encountered this usage across normandy, brittany, paris, the dordogne, the longedoc, toulouse, the riviera, monaco, carcassonne, montpellier, marsailles and aix (and probably some other places while driving between many of the above).So maybe it was just a local thing...PDR
Quote from: paulinfrance on September 24, 2019, 10:32:18 amOk, I have only been living and working in France for the last 40 + years,and NEVER have I heard them using the 'livre'.
Quote from: paulinfrance on September 24, 2019, 17:02:58 pmIt's your British accents that provoke the 'livre',, I go to Paris at least 4 times a year ( some of my family live there ) and even at the Marché couvert de les Enfants Rouge au Marais,, only kilo's,,
Quote from: meharibear on September 24, 2019, 20:14:14 pmNot at all, some stall holders had signs (in French obviously so not pandering to Brits) advertising their offers. I was surprised by it on my first visit to do the weeks veggie shopping.
