Pezenas, South of France

I recently visited friends in the South of France and they took me to see the market in Pezenas. I fell completely in love with is authentically french atmosphere and many painted shutters.

Pezenas Market

The market in Pezenas is a feast for the senses. The sellers shouting out prices, people jousting, the smell of flowers and fruit, fish and bread, sun beaming down between the buildings, it’s the perfect location for the movie version of your life. Even if markets aren’t your thing, it’s well worth sitting in one of the many lovely cafes that line the market to watch the comings and goings. We bought wonderful cold meats, cheese, olives, fish, bread, fruit and some breton tops. Mostly I just loved walking around the beautiful town and soaking up the atmosphere.

Although the produce is lovely, the real treat is the town, which is picture perfect and fulfils all your expectations of a small market town in the South of France. Complete with pastel flaking shutters, church towers and roses growing wild. I made sure to walk the full length of the market just to see more of the town.

The market is open every Saturday (weather dependant) from 8am till 1pm for food and till 5pm for everything else. We parked at the Voltaire Car Park for free.  We arrived at around 11am and things were in full swing. You can find more about the Market here.

  2. Beautiful pictures. This doesnt look like France at all. It looks like a place somewhere in Italy. Beautiful!

    Great photos, very vibrant. I love French architecture, there are so many more stunning buildings and houses in France than in the UK. Every town and village has it’s fair share of beautiful old stone buildings. Wonderful!
