Market Day 2 in Saint-Remy-de-Provence in the south of France
Market Day two. Join us as we discover more of the Wednesday market in Saint-Remy-de-Provence in the south of France.

Country breads in the market are typically much larger than those sold in the Boulangerie (bakery). Fresh loaves of bread disappear in a few hours.
Poulet roti (roasted chicken) et Canard (duck) avec les pommes de terre (with potatoes) basting in the drippings ready for you to take home.
French markets have many more attractions other than food.
If you need a scarf, hat, jewelry, skirt or blouse, browse the markets.
The south of France was chilly in the early mornings of April during the beginning of our visit in 2007. The French women believe in protecting ones neck so naturally I purchased many scarves.
Join us next time at the market when we purchase special baby clams only found in Provence and the lovely Madame gives us her own recipe for preparing them – only one problem - she only spoke French.
