MARKET DAY IN SAINT REMY

Saint Rémy de Provence is the most adorable little town not that far from Avignon. Every Wednesday they set up a market all through the town. We sampled foods like homemade jams, cookies, and olive oils. We also admired a few antiques, scarves, clothes, shoes, bags, as well as artisanal lace, wooden, and leather products.

We enjoyed our morning croissant with a cafe ou lait while the kids enjoyed fresh squeezed orange juice at Le Cafe De La Place. We bought fresh cheeses, strawberries, and apples to take back to our holiday apartment for dinner. Food is crazy expensive in France. But, when the produce is that unbelievably delicious why not just eat from the markets rather than in an expensive restaurant? For lunch, Sommer enjoyed a classic nutella crepe while the boys stayed true to Italy eating pizza. Neil and Oliver had quite the entertainment from a frenchman selling us a wooden “magic trick” propeller called a “Bozo.” Random but so fun!

This quaint and quiet village is beautiful, intimate, and makes for the perfect inspiration for any artist. Vincent Van Gogh produced more than 150 paintings of the countryside surrounding Saint Rémy. If you are ever in Provence, Saint Rémy is a must.
