Marché de Riez
Best way of buying food is doing it straight from the local farmers, that is why I simply LOVE going to the organic market in Paris every weekend. Truly the highlight of my week.

Imagine how happy I got when Jim and Claudia asked if I wanted to join them to the marché de Riez on the Saturday morning? With Claudia‘s latest bargain, an old shopping cart with a grinding sound (great to have if you lose one and other in the crowded market) we took the car in direction to the village Riez.
Forget about superpolished, waxed apples, perfect shaped tomatoes or onions without any traces of soil…in a market you find fruits and veggies in all kind of colours and shapes, there is nothing called perfect and what they all have in common is that they all taste delicious, they smell good, and they have been fed with the love of the local farmers, could you ask for more?

Marché de Riez, every Wednesday and Saturday 08h00-13h00 – Place du Quinconce

    Hur var det med ekologiskt? Christine har bloggat om att det inte finns så mycket eko på just marknaderna. När jag bodde i parran fanns det i alla fall bio på typ Monoprix.

    I used to go there as a kid, as my grandmother loved this market and a cousin was selling his own production.
    During lavender crop season, I also used to drive through the village on the huge Zetor family tractor… taking the load to the lavender distillery of Forcalquier, where they’d use it to produce our famous and tipycal “Eau de lavande”.
    Such souvenirs are brought back to my mind thanks to your images… thank you !
