Well, hold on to your hats (or perhaps reusable shopping bags), because if I thought the Charleston farmers market was amazing, it's nothing compared to what I saw in France! Here are a few markets I had the pleasure of experiencing during my trip.
CAEN: Friday Market
And Kelli's favorite part of the Market? Fry Man! He makes some of the most delicious "frites" I've ever had! We got spicy Samurai sauce with ours.
BEAUNE: "Smashing" Saturday market.
I like to research (yes, it's true). And so I bought several guidebooks before our travels. This book mentioned that Beaune had a "smashing saturday market." And WOW they were not at all joking! We felt some sorrow we couldn't spend more time experiencing the Beaune Saturday market, but alas, we had already rented our bicycles for the day and planned a slightly vigorous route (well, vigorous for me). Another sad fact about the wonderful Beaune market: my digital camera card decided to corrupt a good chunk of photos I'd captured at the market. So unfortunately I cannot share all my memories with you. I just encourage everyone to go themselves!
potentially the largest asparagus stalks I've seen in my life!
