A Small French Market in Oxfordshire....

Yesterday I walked into town,on a very sunny day and saw a delight....A French Market!!! Didn't buy much, had a few tasters! It was great to see, the crowds of people, lets hope the market comes back again!!!

  1. I love a good market and this one looks brilliant. There are lots of things I couldn't have resisted in your photos. (Are you "gearing up" for the next F1 season? Not long now.)

  8. Hello Anne, that all looks very good but must say that I am a bit cynical about these so called markets.
    I've been to so many and have been really disappointed with the produce when I've actually used it.
    I love France and the cuisine but have never been able to relive the wonderful experience of shopping at the local markets.
    The 'Marche Provencale' in Antibes is the most encapturing market that I have shopped in.....

    Perhaps I'm being a bit sniffy!

    Hpoe all is well with you, I've posted a little up-date on my site.


    love Di. xxx

  10. I think markets are so great-rather food or antiques. I didn't know they had French markets in England.

    Come on Anne; be bold and bring home a few munchies or a bottle of wine !!

  28. anne, i just saw your comment on my blog. I can't believe you are that close to Reading! I wish I had known as we could have met for a coffee as I was there for a week staying right in the centre. Next time for sure (Jason will be back next month and I might tag along). Have a great week!
