Uzes Christmas Market 2016


The Saturday Market was hurried this weekend for the setup of the annual Marché Noél Saturday evening. Through Monday the Place Aux Herbes is filled with vendors operating out of white-topped stalls selling all types of holiday gifts and foods.  Wrap your taste buds around these morsels



My favorite jewellery maker is in town with more of his fabulous designs…. and a big hug and kiss for me, too!



Along with the woolies for sale and games for children and families, the market has something for everyone.

  1. Oh, you are a poet – what a wonderful summary of 2020. And, I love all of your photos and information on Uzes. I’ve wanted to step out of my comfort zone and move to Provence. I know Aix well, but your blogs about Uzes have peaked my interest. I may send you an email with a couple of questions. Merci and Bonne Année

    • I would love to hear from you. Uzès is very special. I spent a few weeks in Aix. It’s so totally different, isn’t it? I’m anxious to travel there again. Thank you for your encouragement to write. It’s keeping me engaged though this time. Best wishes to you for a Happy New Year.

  2. Hi Deb, so sorry we missed you this fall. Selling my house and moving to Uzes full time is still on. I think I’ll rent first then buy. (Leaving the US) for Uzes! I do hope we meet up at some point. Love your Xmas blog! Thanks so much, Cynthia

  3. I enjoy all of your posts and appreciate this one especially. I am back in North Carolina this Christmas, but have been to Uzes twice based upon your writing! don’t suppose your favorite jewelry maker has a website? Or hope to be back next September! Merry Christmas and than you for your writing!

    • Thank you, Celia! I’m so flattered that my blog introduced you to Uzes. I’m surprised you’re not here with me now. I couldn’t leave! Please do let me know when you’re in town. You can write me a note at so we can keep in touch. Happy Holidays to you and see you soon in France!

    • Oh, I’m so glad you felt that way. It was a beautiful day to take photos …. and now it’s raining … so we enjoyed it while it was at its best. Happy Holidays to you! Miss you!

  5. Oh, lovely. I do like to buy clothes at the outdoor markets..and those woolies in that one image look perfect. I just wore my sweater, sequins and all, that I bought in a small shop just off the square there, last September. Love it. Merry Christmas to you!

  6. That looks so magical. One year, we’ll be there for Christmas. I’ve just come back from Helsinki in Finland where there was a great seasonal market too, complete with Santa Claus. Have a very Happy Christmas and New Year!
