I have to share with you these photos taken at our local market. Imagine this – it’s a sunday morning, the cupboard is bare, the kids want to stay cooped up in the house after a busy week – so I have the opportunity of taking my time and absorbing the surroundings and the array of colours in the Vieux Marché whilst looking for inspiration. Here’s just a little of what I find…
cèpes, chanterelles, champignons and lychees
endives of course!
les crevettes and les homards to die for!
clams, oursins (urchins), langoustines and whelks
did I tell you the story about when I confused bulots for boulots?
only the french could have different varieties of oysters (huitres)
or big fat chickens – necks and claws included!
so much choice its impossible to decide!
Now remind me – why did I come to France?
