My St Remy Market Morning Ritual

I’m walking briskly through the streets at 8 am. The greys and blues of St. Remy compliment this time of day. I am a creature of habit. The sun will be hitting the terrace at Café de la Place soon. My morning coffee is waiting.

Ashley was born and raised in Montréal, Canada. She has always been drawn to the history, way of life and beauty of Europe. Her feelings for Europe were reconfirmed while studying art in Florence, Italy. Ashley says that stone buildings, colourful shutters and terra cotta tile rooftops fill her dreams and now her days.

Ashley moved to Provence in 2014 with her partner Robin (he also shares her Francophile passions). They are in search of the French joie de vivre, which they find at every turn in the local markets and natural beauty of Provence. This couple are indulging in local olives and wine as the Provencal sunshine changes craggy rocks into things of beauty.

    I will be in Provence for the last week of May this year and I am very keen to visit some markets particularly those that have homewares stalls as well as food. i will be staying in Avignon as I will be relying on public transport – could you advise me on the most appropriate market? Thank you

    Hi Janine,
    I’m sure that Carolyne will also send you an email, but my advice would be to visit the market at St Remy. Getting around with public transport will be tricky. It depends on the home wares you’re interested in. The Wednesday market at St Remy has many cute stands with shabby chic type French ornaments. The town itself would be useful for you to visit as there are many home decorating stores.
    If you’re looking for antiques and you’re only in the area for a week, I would suggest visiting the Sunday market at Isle sur la Sorgue and the many home decorating stores and warehouses full of upmarket French antiques. Hope this helps!

      Thanks Ashley, I agree Isle sur la Sorgue is definitely worth a visit. We always love St Remy, and of course les Halles in Avignon.
