Every day is market day

We visited a market practically every day that we were in Provence.  In each area, there are bound to be two or three towns that would have a market on any given day.  The biggest one we have visited was at St. Remy, even bigger than the one at Aix-en-Provence and one we've enjoyed the most because of the variety of merchandise.  The beautiful voice of Mirielle singing in the marketplace at St. Remy also made this a memorable locale for us.  We were lucky to find a seat in the cafe in front of which she was singing.  You can hear a clip of her singing:

Here is the Aix market, right outside the Hermes store!

Baskets - a signature provencal market fare,

A happy customer -

The cleanup afterwards

St. Remy market is spread out over many streets and squares with a wide variety of merchandise,

 Look at the array of door knobs!

and your choice of cheese stalls


a family affair!

 Not to mention your choice of street musicians,    

on the Cours Mirabeaux in Aix-en-Provence
