Local farmers’ markets, organic markets and weekly markets, where you can buy excellent local produce, traceable from field to fork.
Ahh…the markets of Provence!
Breath in the sweet fragrance of thyme and rosemary, gaze in awe at the tomatoes, courgettes and peppers for a lunchtime ratatouille! A perfect accompaniment for wolf-bream bought from the fish market…
As for nibbles, ‘cade’ – a big chickpea pancake – and some olives will do nicely! For a starter, why not try Provençal petit violet artichoke? And for dessert, succumb to the sugary charms of Solliès figs. Don’ forget to buy a nice bouquet of flowers for the table!
Organic and farmers markets await in the village squares of the Var.
