The Arles market

Olives

My first visit to the medieval city of Arles happily coincided with the Saturday market along boulevard des Lices, so I dodged the shopping carts and elbows to take a few pictures. Next stop: the Cévennes, land of chestnuts and honey, goat's cheese and grass-fed lamb.

How much fun to see the Arles market! I was there this summer. I just purchased four cans of olive oil at Williams-Sonoma that was on close-out. It was produced near Arles and I can't wait to try it! I'm feeling very lucky. It was probably a lot less than I would have paid for it had I purchased it in France. Beautiful photos. Thanks.

It must be my lucky day - beautiful photos of French markets from you, the latest issue of Gourmet arrived dedicated to Paris and I just started reading Trail of Crumbs by Kim Sunee which takes place in France. I wish I could be transported.........to dream is to dream.

Oh my god, I wouldn't be able to resist buying everything! The goat cheese and the honey are particularly alluring. Aren't farmers markets the greatest?

Eileen, lucky you to have a supply of olive oil produced near Arles! It's the next best thing to being there.

Teryll, that kind of dreaming led me to move to France 13 years ago - so look out, you never know what might happen!

Sara, I had to restrain myself because we had a seven-course lunch booked at Jean-Luc Rabanel (more on that to come). It was agony!

Goat cheese and honey?! Delish. I can't wait to visit when I go out of the country in March.. I haven't been able to find fresh fruits, veggies and cheeses in a long time where I am. Can't wait! Mouth is watering. -Sunny ioLite
