I love market days in SW France
I love market days in France. It is a tradition that has been going some 700 years in this part of France and I love them as it is an excuse to meet up with friends and also buy some wonderful local fresh produce.
On Sunday we went to the market in Issigeac, the sun was shining and the market traders were out in force meaning that things are returning to normal. If it is grey a lot of traders do not show up so it means that the locals do not either so market days in the winter are rather grey whereas in the summer they are bright and sunny.
I saw some lovely coloured straw baskets, I am thinking about getting some of these to put in the shop as they are not too big and not too small - if you know what I mean.
