In Mersailles right now– and yes enjoying every minute of it. I’m here for school. I am currently in an off-campus program here in Lacoste and will be in France till November. Afterwhich, I am free to backpack Europe till December 2.
Below are photos of the Apt market, the closest market we have in Lacoste. Apt market is located near Bonnieux — an hour ride away from us, and is the biggest of the Luberon Weekly Markets. The gig happening here has been happening for 900 years now. In Apt Market, you will see local perfumes fabric, herbs, toiletries, and other little things are just equally delightful. It is also a food haven featuring cheesses and nougats and other local treats.
Lavander harvest in Provence is from July to September. Lavander is also being used to deter scorpions from entering houses.
2 Euro for a kilo of grapes! yes, homayged!
They take soaps seriously here. Loads and loads of them being sold in the market in different scents, forms, and sizes.
and oh yes, cheese! cheese! cheese!
Fresh produce are everywhere as well as herbs and spices :)
and when my friends said food is just awesome in France, they weren’t kidding.
