Market day in Joigny on the Yonne river

Here’s a few pics from our trip to the Joigny Marché last week…

Veges looked amazing. I love the artistic flair you see in French markets.

Hmmmm

Hmmmm. This Gorgonzola looked like it could walk out of the fromage stand on its own.

We bought one of these. Kind of like cream cheese. Nice in a baguette with some jambon!

Also pretty. And smelt of the ocean. Not fishy at all.

This guy was very proud of his olives. And rightly so.

This guy was hilarious. Chicken for dinner. The firemen behind us in the queue bought five!

This was an exceptional market. I think it’s only once a month so we were lucky. Outside there were rows and rows of clothing, leather goods (I bought a new purse), shoes. You name it. And it was packed. Last time we came to Joigny we read that the town was ‘dying’ due to the army base having been closed down. But the place was humming during our two night stay. Definitely worth a visit.
