Uzès Saturday Market Virtually Real Time

Now that I’ve discovered I can blog about my visit to Uzès on my iPhone, my tech problems may be solved. You won’t see the most professional layout, but hopefully, you’ll enjoy the monologue and photos … starting with the Uzès Saturday market! 

Uzès Saturday Market

Shopping everywhere
Saturday Market day usurps any other business activity that might go on in the small town’s historic district. Lots of permanent shops are closed. Vendors are everywhere, not just in the plazas; but also along the main streets.

Place aux Herbes and Place Nicclas Fromant
Produce, meats, cheeses, pastries, clothing, and more are spread out for sale around the popular plazas at the historic district center.

What couldn’t I resist?
Today’s purchases included a little something from almost every vendor shown here. Plus, a handmade leather bracelet with a silver clasp that just had to go home with me.

That means I’m stocking up the fridge and beginning to learn my way around. After spending a leisurely morning in the loggia enjoying my coffee, chocolate croissant, and a Bach piano concerto on the stereo, I set out for a walking tour of the neighborhood.
