The Local Markets
Gavray ~ 10 minutes from us
This is one of the towns nearest to us.
On a Wednesday, visit the cattle and (in season) the poultry market, you can visit me on my plant stall each Wednesday from March to September.
Flowerpots exhibiting at the Foire de Printemps -April
For the main sale of seasonal fresh fruit, vegetables, flowers, fish, cream, creme fraiche, honey and locally produced goats cheese, visit the bustling town early on Saturday morning. In Autumn after the apples have fallen, its time for cider making...sample some of the local vintages at the market.
Or, maybe enjoy a traditional "saucisses et frites" cooked on an open air grill, or perhaps sit and watch the world go by outside one of the bars and restaurants which can be found along the main street.
Whatever your needs you will be assured of a warm welcome.
