Market Days in Provence

The social event in each community seemed to be market day.
While staying in the Luberon Hill country we thoroughly enjoyed our visits to the markets in Gordes, Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, and Roussillon. As you can see by the collage there was much to see from the beautiful flowers, cheese, spices, fruits, mushrooms, fish, meat, and vegetables.
I think our favorite market day was in Roussillon where we also found books, vintage linens, and clothes. You know my love of vintage linens. I came home with two vintage bed sheets with the letters embroidered in red, MM. I was very excited with that find and I am thoroughly enjoying sleeping under my MM vintage bed sheets.

Please excuse another collage, but that seems to be the best way to share as many pictures as possible with you. Click on the collage to see a larger view and enjoy the colors of the market place.
