One of the great French traditions are the markets that are held selling all sorts of things from farm produce to ladies corsets. Our village of Roquemaure is too small for its own but surrounding us, all within about 5 – 8 kilometers, are three small towns each with their own market day.
Yesterday we had to cross the border into the Departement of Haute-Garonne to visit the small town of Bessières. Even although it was the 1st of May and a holiday the market was so crowded with families and their children it created a great atmosphere, and the sun was shining again - can't get better than that!
There were so many subjects to photograph and in the end I chose an image of a man of the land – a farmer - asking me if I wanted to buy his asparagus.
I want to thank all who posted yesterday and offered their encouragement, with a special thanks to Michael and Eric.
