Sarlat Market, I love it.

While I was writing the previous ‘blog’ (Christmas market in Sarlat) it reminded me of the last time we were there in September. We have so many pictures that I have split them in two: – the market (I love it) and the architecture (even more pictures to follow).

Every Wednesday is the food market yet every Saturday is everything from food, clothes, tablecloths, gloves etc to books and furniture. The down side is that it is always busy so go early.

I wish that you could smell the different aromas from the pictures below and they are gorgeous:-the spices, chesses, chocolate, nougat and fresh vegetables and fruit, delicious. Just to walk around and not buy anything while soaking up the atmosphere is a real joy. However, if you are anything like me then take a large basket with you to fill with the local produce. Many stall owners stand in exactly the same place every week, which is great when you want to purchase say, fresh strawberries.

The selection of cheeses is great and you can usually taste before you buy.

Delicious nougat with cherries, or chocolate and nuts and some with all three.

The taste of a freshly picked strawberry is out of this world. Our son Adam says that he is ‘strawberried out’, due to the fact that every time we visit the market we buy punnet after punnet. It’s still early and you can see that sales have been brisk.

This is a sign outside an American style café which we always stop at for a coffee and a spot of people watching after a hard morning shopping.
