Oh! My! I've taken my first trip to France, all thanks to Lucy. What a beautiful place - and I'm so hungry right now for some crispy fresh bread and some smelly cheese. Thank you Lucy for all you do.

I spent time this morning at our local market and came home with Pumpkin Spice Butter, a lot of photos and a satisfied smile on my face! I would love to smell French lavender.


I love travel with you!!! :)


Absolutely gorgeous, what a feast for the senses!! I ADORE those baskets. I have acute basket envy right now!! :-D


Hello Lucy! I am from the US, just started crocheting, and just found your pretty blog. I missed your posts while you were on your trip, I have been checking everyday. :) So glad you had a good time, the pictures are lovely! In the US we call markets like that Farmers Markets. But I have never seen bundles of lavender like that! :)

Beautiful pictures, I feel like I have actually been there!! Thanks for sharing them with us!!


What a lovely market! Thanks for sharing it with us :)


Ohhhhhh - those baskets! And the flowers . . . . . Loving your words Lucy! X


just gorgeous!
I worked as a nanny in the south of France in the Cevannes a few years ago and these pictures remind me of it so much. The town where I stayed was famous for pottery so there were so many shops and stalls with it.
The family I worked for also used to buy goats cheese and eat about 3 blocks a day. yumm!


I'd love to be there, too!!!!
thank you for sharing Lucy<

Plenty of sun gives plenty of oil in the lavender and thus plenty of delicious aroma.Those baskets...why can't one get such lovelies for a reasonable price over here? A mystery!
That vegetable stall holder must have been up all night polishing those aubergines!Gorgeous.

Oh my, Lucy. What beautiful lively photos. It makes me wan to go to Provence. The market was fabulous and I agree, I would have wanted 10 or 20 or those baskets. Can't wait for the countryside tomorrow. I'm so enjoying your jaunt to France. Thank you so much for including us.



Lovely French markets! Adore those baskets. I got a gorgeous one when we went th Corsica. Unfortunately our cats liked it too... Oh how I'd love a whiff of that lavender. My favourite smell xxxx


These pics are just magnificent :) would love to visit the Provence one day and do plenty of crochet to :)
Thank u for sharing ur wonderful week x x x


WOW...thanks for all the eye candy!!


Seeing the pictures of the market takes me back to when I lived in Athens, Greece & went to the markets there. It was one of my favorite things to do besides going to the beaches. Thank you so much for sharing your pictures & memories of your trip.

I LOVE markets, especially in other countries, the colours, smells, sights and sounds, wrap around you. A sensation overload! Brilliant, I'm just going to have another look at those pictures! Ada :)


Wow, you describe it all so well, I feel like I was there with you! x


So familiar...! How do you get such true colours? Camera? Phone? Merci pour le voyage!

Maybe it's markets in the sun, but they always look better than our markets in the rain!!! Thanks for taking us along. Sarah


What a trip! I wish we had things like that around here. Thank you so much for sharing with us! Truly memorable :)
