Day 9: Cremieu's Market




I love going to the market when in France. Around my region, there is one every day of the week in different small towns around my village. Today was Wednesday so the market was in Cremieu, a gorgeous medieval town. The market is set under a 14th century old market hall, the exact same spot where Juan and I celebrated our wedding a few years ago.

The weather was cold and rainy today, which gave the market a little charm but we didn't stick around for too long. Just enough time to buy some local honey, a scarole salad for lunch and a few clementines. My Mom and I didn't feel like cooking much so we bought a local dish called diots au vin blanc, which is a regional sausage cooked in white wine along with potatoes or polenta. Oh I can't tell you how good these were... Such a perfect meal for this kind of weather!

Gosh! I miss going to the market too... Remember when we found one in Lyon along the Quais de Saone? That was GREAT! Souvenirs, souvenirs... Bises

I'm jealous a million times over, what a wonderful market! Do you have any photos of your wedding archived on your blog? I'm sure it was lovely, it's such a beautiful spot.

I love going to market wherever I may find myself. I must admit yours appears more photogenic than mine. You have some wonderful photographs here.
