French Provincial Market Day

The markets here in Provence are certainly outstanding. At every turn a different fragrance plays havoc with my nose- bunches of Lavender, bowls of olives, preserved tomatoes, fresh tomatoes, all manner of seasonal produce. It seems like the colours are bursting vibrantly and waitng to be painted by an artist or eaten at least. The vendors gladly let you taste their wares because just one taste and you will have to have it! The village goes back to its sleepy town vibe when they pack up and then you can just sit out the front of a cafe or tabac and sip on a perrier while watching the people go by. The temps have been 28-31 degrees everyday so beautiful.
