Sunday Market

September 28, 2014

Sunday morning in Capestang….cathedral bells chiming, the Sunday market in the square in full swing, long line outside the boulangérie (bakery). This market has everything: gorgeous produce, olives and tapenades, bread, homemade jams, shellfish, a man with roasted chickens, potatoes and ratatouille (tonight’s dinner), meats, cheeses, pâtés….paella to-go, Asian ready-to-eat, flowers, toys, used books, clothing, leather goods, jewelry, socks and underwear. And plenty of people-watching!

This woman had a mouthwatering array of olives, and tapenades and anchoiades for tasting.

It’s a short walk from my house to the Canal du Midi, and while it was quieter on this blustery day than yesterday, it seems the cruising season is still going strong. Work on the Canal, connecting the Mediterranean to the Atlantic, began in 1666 and was completed in a mere 15 years. Lazy as it looks here, there are numerous locks to navigate throughout its length.  Can’t wait to take a cruise!Canal du Midi 1
