It's Friday market day in Amboise.  Here is a wider view from last year.

  1. Je vais prendre des poireaux, du céleri branche, des bébé navets, des épinards. J'attendrai un peu pour les tomates parce que ce n'est pas encore la saison ! Wonderful shot!

    1. Ces tomates étaient assez bons, mais les meilleurs sont encore à venir !

  2. Superbe photo ! Je prends un peu de tout pour faire une bonne soupe ou des légumes sautés à l'huile d'olive with onions and garlic. You cannot imagine how awful hospital food can be!!! I love markets, so colourful.

    1. Cela semble déliceiux ! I know that hospital food in the States is not good but I'm disappointed to hear it is the same here.

  3. J'adhère totalement à la recette de soupe précédente. C'est celle que je fais chaque soir. Mais j'espère que dans peu de temps on passera aux salades composées avec ces beaux légumes.

    1. J'ai déjà commencé à faire les salades composées, mais je dois apprendre à faire la soupe de légumes. Tellement à apprendre à mon âge !

  6. I enjoyed enlarging this image to check how many veg we have in common with France :) happy to say all! Looking at the bigger picture it's quite a substantial market Stuart. Bon weekend to you also.

    1. Yes, it is enormous on the Sunday market. I don't think I'll ever get tired of going there.

  7. Beautiful, is this a farmers market?

    1. It's a mix of merchants direct from the farm (vineyard, cheese producer, or whatever) and what I would call "retail" (re-seller).

  8. Nothing more beautiful or tasty than fresh vegetables!

  9. There is nothing quite like a good farmer's market. I can't wait for ours to open - of course, that will be several months away. The two different market days are a nice touch, too. Lucky you!

    1. Yes, very lucky. And what's more, the market days are year round.

  10. I have to drive to find a fresh market with bins like this and with only local produce. This is a lovely picture and I could plan some delicious menus around these vegetables.

    1. Thanks, Genie. It's a great system here... throughout europe for that matter... to have these local markets. And so much more fun than driving to the grocery story.
