Even more from Cahors .........

I am sure they had every herb and spice
you could think of, and many many more!
And a splendid variety of teas too.

LEON GAMBETTA (1838-1882), French statesman,
was born in Cahors on the 2nd of April 1838.

this really is a donkey with them!!
I thought I was seeing
things at first...


  1. Your pics make me want to be there! Love the donkey.

  2. Me to! I need to look on a map and see if it is feasible to visit Cahors on a drive back to the UK sometime. What day of the week is the market Anne?

  3. These are some lovely mosaics, Anne. Lovely color combination! Have a happy new week. xxxx

  4. amazing to see that donkey ~ I would have felt like I was in the movies.
    Lovely little green vegs in the very top pic ~ they look like baby zuchinni's. very cute.
    Have a safe week

  5. What a gorgeous market! The sight of all those fabulous veggies and fruits (peaches!! I LOVE peaches!!) is making me hungry :-)

    Did you buy anything? The tea stand looked really tempting.

    Cahors looks lovely! I'm going to look up its location right now to see how far it is from us :-)

  6. Thanks for sharing more photos of this truly lovely market full of goodies!

  7. Hi Anne,
    Oh my, the food!!
