Markets in Provence and Cote d'AzurMy Dreamy ProvenceTaste

All the colour of the best daily French Food Market in Aix-en-Provence

Place Richelme is THE place for market lovers in Aix-en-Provence. There is a market every single day of the week in Place Richelme and a much bigger market including antiques, silverware, spices, linens, soaps and flowers on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday in Place des Prêcheurs and Place de la Madeleine.

The daily fruit and vegetable market is held in this lovely, shady space. The small enclave called La Place aux Herbes was the scene of the original fish and vegetable market in 1360. For more photos from My Dreamy Provence you can see Jill’s colour of food post here.

My career started in the Hotel Industry training with Forte Hotels in Kensington, London. I chose to concentrate on sales and guest relations and enjoyed many years’ working with Forte and Kempinski hotels in London, Spain and Canada (where I spent a wonderful seven years in Toronto). At thirty, I changed career and became a head-hunter in London; a rewarding and fast-paced new direction.

A passion for travel has been with me from an early age and after college I spent a memorable year on a kibbutz in Israel….as well as plane hopping to many other wonderful locations before the serious business of a career started.

Ten years ago I became a mum to Olivia and later Anna. I chose to stay home to raise them but after eight years’ starting searching for a new career path close to my heart. My husband and I had been discussing a move to France for many years’ (or rather I had been trying to persuade him). France is my favourite place in the world. At the same time I had started following one or two superb travel blogs which inspired me to want to write. Our change came about last summer when we relocated for a year to Provence, and I launched 'My Dreamy Provence'. The blog is from my heart; authentic experiences, a place to inspire on Provence, French life and most importantly a message that you must never be afraid to change things around and follow your dreams even if it’s for a short time. At the very least I hope my blog and our Provence experience showed my girls to go for it and follow their passions in life.

We relocated back to London in September but I return to Aix regularly to take photographs, breath in the fresh air and continue my journey around Provence. The kids and husband may join me from time to time but they are happy to be back in this vibrant city. I plan to set up ‘My Dreamy London’ very shortly.
