Campagne en fête

The village had a rather good night market featuring local producers of food and wine, sheep’s milk ice cream and olive oil, a chanteuse and “restauration sur place” of course.

Trev had a plate of meat, lots of meat, with rosemary potatoes.

I had what the stallholders assured me was a burger, but was in fact two potato waffles wrapped around local goat cheese, honey and tomatoes. Yum.

We bought our wine and Blanquette from a stall stocked by a winery in nearby Montazels who provided us with shot size glasses to drink it!

Fabulous evening. “Our” table featured folk from five different countries. I raised enough energy to dance with a charming Italian man.

Our friends wanted us to go back to our place and fetch the crystal, but I was just too tired; I literally haven’t stopped since the end of March, apart from four days on nearly holiday in Argeles.

    What a lovely evening. I fancy trying to make one of those not-burgers myself!!!


  3. They had started evening producers’ markets in our area a couple of years before we left France…they were a lot of fun…a bit like a food hall, You bought what you fancied and ate and drank it at the tables put out by the mairie, never knowing whom you might meet.
    Lots of fun…but quite expensive.

    I would much rather have a cheese-filled potato sandwich thing than a burger!
