Living and Building a home in the heart of France
5th July 2006
Every Wednesday morning the centre of Montmorillon is filled with market stalls, produce and people.
Honey, pollen, royal jelly, honey sweets and all things bee-related.
Some stalls are just a trestle holding the mushrooms or lettuce plants or onions grown by the local person standing behind it. Every item is well presented, showing the respect the French have for the quality of their food.
Cheeses and dairystuff, a pleasure to choose.
Fifteen different types of mushroom.
Herbs, veg plants and geraniums.
My favourite fruit & veg stall, all beautifully fresh and tempting.
You can buy a bed or a carpet, a goose egg or a tapestry, shoes or elastic, all kinds of clothes, meats or goats cheese, handbags or earrings, quilts or curtains, chairs or cheeses. It makes a happy half hour wandering around before stopping at the café to people-watch for a while.
