To market to market to buy a fat pig.

One of the many things I love about France is the weekly market.  Most of the towns have their own market day with some towns putting on splendid markets while others are fairly simple.  Our closest town was Rostrenen and the market there was quite large.  The first time we went it coincided with the antique market so virtually the whole of the town centre was occupied with stalls.

Close to the antiques section of the market was this organ grinder providing wonderful French music to accompany your buying!

There were many bargains at the antique part of the market but unfortunately when you are flying home you are limited in the amount of luggage you carry.  The things I saw would have added too much weight to my bag!

The produce at the markets is always so fresh and so cheap.  We generally bought fruit and vegetables and could not go past the saucisson or the cheeses.

I love the way they also cook using huge paella pans. These offerings are usually sold out very quickly.

It was while we were at the market that we came across this vending machine.  Something I have never seen before.  Take away pizza from a machine!

We went to markets in a few of the towns. This is at Carhaix.

This one was at Mur de Bretagne.  They had beautiful brioche at this market.

It intrigues me how at a market that was a French market you can find a stall that sells all things British!  Can you see the Australian addition to this stall?  That was why I took the picture.
