The French Markets

We have returned from a lovely week in Provence, France, and had such a wonderful week away. There were so many parts of our trip to highlight, but my favorite part about our time there was the time we spent at the markets in the various towns. I loved just wandering around the aisles of stalls filled with produce, meats, cheeses, textiles, pottery, local specialties and more. Markets seem to happen often throughout Europe and they are truly a part of life here. France, however, seemed to have the most stunning markets I have seen yet....Here are some of the sights we saw at the markets we visited in Isle Sur La Sorgue, St. Remy de Provence and Aix-en-Provence. 

Lavender, Lavender everywhere!!

The beautiful French linens.

More lavender and other smells in the form of locally made soaps.

I had one of these delicious meringues - filled with chocolate chips and nuggets! 
Oh the many kinds and all were delicious!
