Provence Tradition, Village Markets, Photos

The Provence Market is an opportunity to make photos

When the villages in Provence hold a market day the vendors come from distant areas with fish, meat, wines, and produce not always available in the village.  If you have a vacation rental in a small village this is a good time to buy fresh fish and other ngredients not usually available.  Wine and olive oil,cheese and especially fish come in mobile vans to the village markets. The displays make good photos.

Wines and Olive oils come to the markets from the vineyards and mills around Mouries, St Remy, and Les Baux,
