My Sunday Photo - April 3rd 2016


French markets are wonderful places to shop with so many small and local businesses selling their wares.  Much of the fresh produce will be have been grown in the region and you will find that the stall owners have will  be happy to sell you whatever weight you want or choose fruit of just the right ripeness for your needs.  Other stalls sell anything from clothes to accessories, kitchen items and even live chickens.  Here are some photos I took at our local market in Condé-sur-Noireau this week although I avoided the chicken sellers in case I "accidentally" bought some chicks that I am not actually ready for yet.
