It's Market Day !

Market life around the Mediterranean has played a huge role in the economic and social life of communities for centuries and despite the growth in supermarkets, is as important today as it has always been

The markets can take all forms: general markets which do the rounds of the towns and villages on a daily basis, food markets, organic food and artisan markets, nights markets, indoor or covered markets (Les Halles), brocantes (akin to a flea market), antique markets ... the list goes on, but one thing for sure is that in this part of the world they are always guaranteed to be lively, vibrant and a social melting pot where communities come together to share their stories and food.

  

Notable local examples of these are the fabulous Saturday morning markets in Uzes and Sommieres (folk travel from miles away to visit these); the general markets in Anduze (Thursday morning) and Saint Jean du Gard (Tuesday morning - take the Train a Vapeur des Cevennes from Anduze to make an event of it); the organic food market in Uzes (Wednesday morning); the night Market in Nimes (Thursday evenings in July & August) or Anduze (Tuesday evening in July and August); the wonderful indoor market in Nimes (Les Halles); the brocante in Anduze (every Sunday morning); the famous antiques market in Barjac (Easter and August).

Take a stroll with us around the market stalls and make sure to check out the real thing during your stay. (A list of market days can be found in the Guest Information Pack in the apartments) ...  

What better way to spend a summer's day than by rising early, pottering around the market to get the best pick of the local produce, meeting up with people and exchanging topical stories (or local gossip!) and finishing off with a fabulous 'menu du jour' (and a glass of chilled rosé of course!)?
