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.

For my first full Christmas in Uzes, everything is merry and bright!



It’s Time for “La Tournée du Père Noël” in San Quentin la Poterie

A bonus to living in Uzes is Christmas in San Quentin la Poterie just down the road. The small town is filled with dozens of pottery shops and other sorts of magical places.   On this day it was La Tournée du Père Noël, the annual holiday market.

Follow me along as I wander through the streets and into the shops ….



Christmas in San Quentin la Poterie




The whole town of San Quentin la Poterie seemed to be out this day. If they weren’t joining shoppers, they were doing their favorite things — bingo 

… and Pétanque
