Market day...


I am not sure why but food and produce always appears to taste nicer when purchased from the local markets as opposed to a shop....


This could be a result of the whole experience when purchasing at a local market as it is always nice to have a chat about what you are buying before you purchase it...
 

The French take a lot of pride in the way that their food and produce are displayed and they make it look so easy but then they have had a lot of practice at this as the markets have been operating in our region for over 600 years...

Today it is our market day so I am off to do some shopping or as the French say faire les courses. Note the French have adopted the word "shopping" which makes me smile when I hear it.

à demain, Leeann x

  1. The food is better because it usually comes from local producers, picked the same morning or the night before, not days and days earlier for shipping long distances.
    Even the produce that comes from farther afield is chosen very early the same morning. I think most supermarkets order from their suppliers and take delivery sight unseen.
