Just Another Summer Tuesday Night in Uzés

The Barefoot Blogger is getting a bit blasé, I’m afraid, about all the activity below my apartment window. Every Tuesday night in Uzès, there’s a party going on.

There are only market vendors with jewelry, food, and all sorts of handiwork. There’s a bit of music and tango dancing at the Mairie (town hall). Sounds boring, right?

NOT!!!

Summer Tuesday Night in Uzés

Tango dancing at the Mairie on Tuesdays brings dance lovers and tango club members from near and far.

Dancers swirl to their favorite tango music in this beautiful setting in the center of Uzes.

Summer Tuesday Night in Uzès

Wandering around the plaza allowed me to stop by for a short visit with one of my favorite artists. (More about Marie and her work coming soon!)

There’s always something new to try from the weekly vendors. l’Aligot de l’Aubrac is a mixture of cheese, heavy cream, and potato stirred up in a huge pot. It’s served here with grilled sausage and onions. Yum!

Not bad for a summer Tuesday night in the neighborhood….

  1. Hi Deborah, I stumbled accross this item when searching for info about night markets. A French lady told me the one in Anduze is better but it looks to me a long round trip!
    Another question – where do fireworks happen on Bastille Day and do you know what time they start?
    It was great meeting you last week – we will be in the pub later for the footy!

    • Loved meeting you, too! See you later. Check out the post just published for info on what to do Bastille Day. I’m still undecided!

    • It’s so easy to take things for granted, isn’t it. This is always fun and a time to look forward to each summer. Maybe you’ll be here to enjoy?
