Open Air Market, Arles

Flavors of Provence at the Saturday market in Arles: olives, asparagus, strawberries, lavender and other flavored
honey, sausage made from the meat of the famous bulls of the Camargye, fresh herbs, dried herbs, artichokes,
garlic, and salted cod (for the famous dish brandade de morue).

Fish and Shellfish at the Market

Other Products 

Fifteen flavors of macarons. We bought 12 of them and shared with all the other people on our tour.
Everyone seemed to love the unique flavor of their personal macron.

A popular snack truck for the market people. 

Produce from various places. Many of the stalls had imported fruit
and vegetables such as melons from Morocco, asparagus from
Spain, oranges and pineapple from Kenya, and so on.
After a morning of birdwatching we had a picnic which our tour guides had purchased in the market before we left.

I think I would be terribly frustrated at that market and not having a place where I could buy a lot and cook it all! It's glorious -- I can practically smell all the wonderful fresh produce, the fish -- everything! What great fun. (And oh! Macarons!)
