We ended up leaving it in France to be hung in our cottage someday. It was a change of plans at the last minute. I will be so delighted to see it again!

I miss the market buzz the most from when I lived in Europe. It really was a place to observe, chat and find the best ingredients. The lithograph of your market place is a great souvenir. Speaking of souvenirs….what ever happened to the big cow painting from France? Where did you hang it in your new house? Just curious.

I love Olive Us, as does my 10-year-old!

I am now living in a really small town in Vendée and the first day I was looking for the post office, I found the city market. The most amazing thing was that, as I headed out of the market (to search for the post office), there was this lady coming with her animal companion: a huge savage pig in a leash! I was astonished! (And thought to myself: “Oh, we are far away from Paris now…” ). But the most amazing thing is that I was the only one shocked by the event! Everyone knew the owner and the pig! Even dogs in leashes would come and salute the pig friendly! Well, I learned afterwards that the pig is called Gertrude and she has been going to the market for years…. But she has become an elderly pig, so she doesn’t come every week anymore! Love these things about France… ; )

We basically eat veggies and a few grains and we love to talk to the people that grew our food.

When ever we have traveled (mostly Europe and Hawaii) we let our kids go to the markets and pick out whatever they want. We especially loved the grocery stores in Amsterdam and Rome-when we travel we don’t go out for dinner we have a picnic either in a park or in our room(s) and the kids love it.

I’ve been away from your blog for a while and just saw that you’ve moved to my fair city. Welcome!

My parents live in a small town near Toulouse, and the market is very beautiful and friendly, everybody knows each other. Vegetables, fish, meat, eggs, bread, pastries,…you can find everything you need directly from the farms. I like to go with my kids so they can taste things they are not used to and their favorite is called “fouace”, it’s like a brioche, it’s delicious!

Bought jars of creamy honey, as always :) I use to live in Lausanne Switzerland and there we have fresh market 2 days/week. We moved to a smaller town 3 years ago and don’t have a fresh market here, but we can order directly from farms around.

Our little town does a farmer’s market on Saturdays in the summer. It isn’t enough for me, so some friends and I organized a produce co-op. We take turns shopping in pairs at the big farmer’s market in Dallas (about 40 minutes from our town) every other week, and split the bounty among 12 of us. It’s a great deal–I get a laundry basket full for $20. I love it!

We have some great farmers markets in Minnesota. In my area, they won’t start for a few months as we’re still buried under several feet of snow.

Going to farmers’ markets is something my family and I have such fun doing. And what amazing bonus points to visit one in France, at the foot of a cathedral!

The market in the video was on Tuesday and Friday. It would move to other nearby towns on other days, so basically you could have access to a market every day but Sunday.
