Going to the local indoor market (or Halle) has fast become one of my favourite past times since moving to Pau. The hustle bustle in there is electric, especially on a Saturday morning. The smell of fresh fruit, wild herbs, spices and bunches of vibrant flowers hit you as soon as you enter. I buy all our fruit and veg from there whenever possible! The size of the produce available is huge compared to the supermarkets, and much cheaper! Look at the size of my peppers! 🙂 The more weird and wonderful that the shapes and sizes are the better! I found a live caterpillar in my broccoli the other day, which must surely be a sign of no pesticides. It was actually a friend who brought this satisfying thought to my attention, I was too busy getting freaked out about how many other insects might be hiding away!
