We were very sorry to have missed the Christmas market itself, due to the terrible weather, but we did get to the ordinary monthly market just before Christmas (22 Dec 2011), to see what was for sale. I took a few photos, so you could see we were not short of food over the holiday period.
No shortage of apples!!
Cheeses for everyone.
The French eat masses of oysters over Christmas and New Year and there certainly were plenty here.
There is usually a lot of livestock at the monthly markets, but there was not so much here, being Christmas, I guess.
Cold feet? Plenty of colourful choice here to keep them warm!
Cold tummy? You could have a feast on this hot paella.
Every rainwater downpipe, or street sign, throughout the town, seemed to have a small tree tied to it.
back home again to enjoy the oysters which we bought :-)) They are very cheap at the market; this 'bakers' dozen cost €4.40
