Tuesday is market day in Olonzac, a ten minute drive from our village. I look forward to it and have every week since we moved to France.
Almost all of my fruit and vegetable shopping is done at the market. I also buy eggs from a local farmer, goat cheese made a few villages away, our neighbor's honey, olives, olive oil, wonderful roast chicken and potatoes, used books, kitchen utensils, clothes, scarves and jewelry.
Each season has it's specialities.

I usually get my shopping done early, especially in the summer when the heat and the crowds worsen as the morning goes on.
Then I take a seat at our favorite café, have a coffee and enjoy the rest of the morning. Pin It
