Todays market greeted us with the most amazing display of autumn colors and produce.
Here is a crate of the first olives of the year.. it's the beautiful Picholine variety, which makes the best oil. One can't eat olives as they are, they need to be either pickled or pressed for oil. I find it charming that fresh Picholines are available to those customers who prefer to do the pickling themselves(it's a complicated process that takes several days). The fresh green of the olives looks so pretty next to the walnuts (from Grenoble) and the first Clémentines of the year..
And here the true flavour of autumn, Cêpe mushrooms (Porcini) from the Cevennes..
.. some liquorice, nutmeg and god knows what else!
Selecting a cheese to go with our glass of wine later in the café. Wearing my Ex-libris GM, Lift Earrings and Lift Pendant.
At the end of the market day, everyone gravitates towards the cafés which surrond the square, ordering some wine or coffee while enjoying a little pick nick of the delicacies bought while chatting to their friends and family.
A wonderful morning and a vrai joie de vivre!!
