The Market in Baugé

Like every town in France, Baugé has a market. On Saturday morning we set out to have a stare. We didn't buy much, but we really took it all in.













Market Fashion:







Unabashedly, Xavier had a look around with the video camera. I would have been intimidated by all of those glares, but he is a Frenchie himself, I guess. Regardless, thanks to his documentation, we get an excellent view of what a Saturday morning market looks and sounds like in a small French village. I was just happy to be surrounded by all of those vegetables really.

I think I'll leave my video camera at home when I come. I too would be intimidated by all the staring!

Oh yeah... and I've been a little worried about what to wear in France but it looks like my camo pants and plaid jacket will be just fine.

It makes me miss the farmer's market - what is the growing season like in France? Where are they getting those vegetables from - locally?
