There are no barriers at all now!
Gone are the barriers that kept people away from the produce in the Sunday market. However, we still have the social distancing rule and of course the wearing of face masks recommended to keep control of the spread of Covid-19. Although we did notice that only about half of the people were actually wearing a face mask yesterday morning which is a bit of a worry.
The easing of the lock down has seen more people attending the market and other attractions in the village. Through the week I have noticed tourists taking photographs of the various picturesque buildings that surround Le Place de la Liberté.
Not having seen many people or camper vans for such a long time it seems like odd behaviour to me now. It just shows that people can become accustomed to what is the norm in a lock down situation.
Anyway I digress, the market was excellent, the different produce, the colours, the smells of herbs, strawberries and of course cheese was a delight to the senses.
First a visit to this wonderful stall selling hand crafted jewellery made from Brazilian Capim Dourado or golden grass.
The Fresh fruit and vegetables look so colorful, what a great variety of delicious tomatoes.
Handmade cheeses are so good.
A new comer to the market is the pottery artisan, visit the website at Terria Potteries. Again hand made to a high quality standard and all at a reasonable price.
On our walk around the market we noticed a new seat at the side of the church.
It will be excellent to sit in the shade away from the sun for a few minutes contemplation.
Around the base of the tree plus a very interesting Tilia Tilleul bush. Which when it is in flower will produce an excellent perfume. The plant won a price in the 1930s for its use in medicine.
Walk just past the tree and its new seat, on the right hand side of the chemin you will see a gorgeous garden outside the library which has been planted by the commune.
