Farmers Market in Nice, France

Flower Stall at Farmer’s Market in Nice, France

This was my favorite place in France. So many wonderful foods. If I lived there, I’d go every day and scarf up those cheeses, breads, seafood, fruits, spices and veggies. Oh, yumyum. You’re going to want to dive into the monitor screen when you see all the beautiful things to eat, and take home some fresh flowers to put on your balcony.

    I’m a sucker for anything fresh, I remember those French farmer markets in Paris, a bite of this and a bite of that was enough for me.

  4. Candied fruits, spices, tasty breads with obligatory cheeses…I’d forgotten how wonderful the French Farmer’s Markets are. It’s been years since I’ve been to one. They make ours pale in comparison. I seem to remember some had quite the selection of local meats too. That’s it…dinner time…I’m getting hungry!

    WOW! I have never seen baskets of spices like that- very cool! And the asparagus, and bread, and cheese……oh how my waistline would grow, lol!

    Wow, have been enjoying your posts. The photos in this one are mervelously drool-induging, and the hip-hop tale had me rolling. I would LOVE to ravel with you, I bet it would be tons of fun. Shake it, baby!

    The peaches, though, hurt me. That is the only bad thing about Maine.

    • Thanks, Ali. My husband gets a real kick out of being married to an O.G. Only, in my case it isn’t Original Gangsta, it’s Old Granny. Sorry about the peach thing. You can grow other things that I can’t, like maybe pears and cherries.
