    1. Hi Diane

      The Saturday morning market is a delight, as is it's stunning setting.

  2. Brings back our memories of our week in the Dordogne - Stayed at Lu Bugue and visited Sarlat but unfortunately not on market day but still loved the atmosphere.

  3. Oh man -- the best we have within a 45 minute drive is the farmer's market. Otherwise I have to make due with Food Lion.

    1. Is Food Lion a good supermarket? Farmers markets are great ways to spend a morning.

  4. I have to say, good as the Union Square Greenmarket is, it just doesn't cut the mustard compared to this one.

    1. Maybe. I think all big cities have first rate markets world wide. London's Borough market is one I knew well - and loved. I bet Union Sq. is excellent too. Sarlat's has a rustic twang and is set in a 14th century town.

    French, and not so far from the place I live with my parents when we are on holidays, though in a less touristic area ! Sixtine

    1. Nice part of the world to holiday. Sarlat's touristic attraction is understandably high.

  6. I imagine that you came home with plentiful supplies Rob. Your post has made me think that I've not seen any chestnuts for sale over here this year :(

    1. We're blessed with large areas of chestnut woodland down here. It was a staple of times gone by, easily obtainable,cheap and highly calorific. Of course, the planting of all that chestnut gives the perfect environment for Cepes to grow.
