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.)ReplyDeleteLoulou16 March 2009 at 11:37Looks like a great market! Next time - you must buy some cheese! :)ReplyDeleteRowena16 March 2009 at 14:46I know that I would have come home with bags of goodies from the looks of that market. The pastries!!!ReplyDeletePhivos Nicolaides16 March 2009 at 16:18Interesting and beautiful place.

What fun! I am such a cheese fan and would have brough home an entire basket full!DebbykayReplyDeleteTrubes16 March 2009 at 22:56Hello 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. xxxReplyDeletesally in norfolk17 March 2009 at 22:43i love the way you do your photos you must tell me how you do them :-)ReplyDeleteLinda18 March 2009 at 06:37I think markets are so great-rather food or antiques. I didn't know they had French markets in England.ReplyDeleteBarbara18 March 2009 at 08:36Hi Anne,Very nice; I hope that this is a regular event and you can return another time and buy a few goods.Come on Anne; be bold and bring home a few munchies or a bottle of wine !!ReplyDeleteAnne in Oxfordshire18 March 2009 at 11:38Casalba - Hi thanks for calling in.
