One of the joys in living in Europe is the quality of markets — no, not supermarkets (and those are frequently quite delightful, too!) — regional weekly markets where the products are straight from the fields or cheesemaker or butcher or fishmonger into your shopping basket. AND they are picturesque as well!
Here are a few scenes from our Monday market inside and outside the medieval market hall in Saint-Pierre-sur-Dives in Calvados, Normandy, France. Enjoy!
Fruit & veg including HUGE sacks of carrots at the Monday Market.
Market vendors outside the medieval hall.
Feathered friends and pretty plants.
Shopping baskets (yes — I’m going to buy a new one!) and flowering plants.
And finally — the clothing on offer may not be to our taste — but someone must want it!
A variety of clothing is sold at the Monday market.
