Julie WhitmarshMarkets in Provence and Cote d'AzurTaste: Food & Drink

Saturday is market day in Apt and I love it!

Contributor blog post by Vaucluse Dreamer:

I always think it’s a shame that we don’t have the same approach to markets in England as they do in France.

As I sit with my first coffee of the day and a ‘pain au chocolat’ in a cafe in Apt the whole town is bustling, full of people and chatter. …Continue reading here for Julie’s description of the Luberon town of Apt on a Saturday morning – market day. Arrive early to get the best choice of seasonal produce, arrive later to get a real feel for this dynamic market where you can buy everything from underwear and fabric to roast chickens and North African spices.

Julie and her husband Andy started visiting the Vaucluse area 25 years ago & over the years have increased the amount of time they spend there with their growing family. She has a deep affection for the area, finding it is a great place to visit, where the whole family can relax and enjoy time together.

She longs for the day when she can ‘up-sticks’ from her home on Dartmoor & relocate to the Luberon and spend her days cycling, walking, visiting markets & brocante fairs and of course enjoying the local food and drink.

Her blog VaucluseDreamer gives her a space to highlight some of her favourite things about the area from places to visit to particular activities that she and her family all enjoy.

She hopes one day it will be a place where she can share the process of renovating a house in France, but at the moment that will have to wait.
