We were in Geneva, Switzerland attending a conference last week, and had a few days off, so we hopped the border to France to visit a good friend in Languedoc-Rousillion, a region in the south central part of France. Of course, we visited the Saturday Farmer's Market there.
The town was very small, but the market was big. The food was mostly local and seasonal; however, there were tomatoes and stawberries from the south of Spain (which we're told is the European Union's answer to Mexico.)
There were long displays of delicious local cheeses, bins of homemade tapenades, mounds of spices, fresh seafood from the Mediterranean, local honey, regional wine, radishes, meats, salad greens, fava beans, and fresh bread. It was true eye candy. We hope you enjoy the photos.
