TRAVEL with pat and lew

the outdoor farmer’s market

Posted by Lew Weinstein on February 23, 2007

Every Sunday and Wednesday morning, year round, the market comes to Collioure and Place du Marachel Leclerc is taken over with food trucks and tables. It’s always crowded, and the selections, especially the fresh vegetables, are the best.

It’s wonderful to eat fresh food, all grown or produced with a few miles of where we live.

Thirty varieties of olives – your choice. Pat tries several before she finds the ones she likes.

Most of the vendors don’t speak English, but sign language works just fine. The bread man is a cheery delight, smiling and flirting with his female customers, and his bread is fantastic.

There are fresh flowers, tablecloths and napkins, sandwiches, hats and straw shopping bags.

Also art, and one Wednesday we buy an inexpensive reproduction of a Collioure scene.
