Off to Market We Go

Tuesday is market day in Cotignac. It is quite popular and there are alot of us tourists, which it seems the vendors can spot from 100 feet away. Most of them are accommodating, encouraging and most polite. There are gorgeous veggies, cheeses, sausages, olives, tapenades, oils, cheeses, then clothes, baskets, trinkets, plants. Oh yes- and truffles. Real ones. They cost a mint, but I have only seen truffles a couple of times in my life, so it is rather exciting. It is hard to decide what to buy, but we ended up dining on haricot vert, roasted new potatoes and some delicious biscuits(cookies) bought at the market. Of course, we have baguettes, cheese, olives, and nuts for appetizers with a bottle of rose- every night....
Bon Appetit!

Wow- what a fabulous gastronomic adventure. Bring some truffles home and better yet if you get to stalk them yourselves. We are so jealous.

I have always loved market days in small towns. I love the look of both the cheese and the sausage. Glad you guys are getting settled in and enjoying your new life.
