Mecredi and Vendredi are market days in Uzes. The markets are always held in the main village square, La Place Aux Herbes. It is exactly as you would imagine a provincial market to be… fresh vegetables, fruit, honey, fish, chicken, salami, olives and local products made from lavender.
It is a feast for the eye as well as the stomach. There is nothing like buying fresh fruit and veg straight from the producers. There are no ‘puncy’ foods, just honest, simple ingredients ready to be taken home and lovingly prepared.
But what would a french provincial market be without a busker or two. The most captivating one of the day was a puppeteer who had a wonderful marionette. Sari was mesmorised and ending up making friends with both the puppet and puppeteer.
