Take away Tuesday

"Salade fraîcheur" -  fish and pasta salad

Walking around Vaison's beautiful Provençal market I realized that now that we are at the height of the tourist season all of a sudden there are numerous food stalls that you do not normally see the rest of the year. Pizza and paella can be found all year round but right now it looks like the horn of plenty! And don't think it is only the tourists who buy all these delicacies - I have seen more than one French lady happily stocking up. Looks almost like Tuesday is becoming take away day in Vaison!

Tellines - tiny mussels in a fragrant garlic sauce

Fresh fruit juices

Roasted Chicken and frîtes (French fries)

Eggplant and Zucchini fritters

Almost sold out: Asian specialities

And pizza of course!


  1. I remember so well the Tuesday market at Vaison. How I wish I could be there again. Well, perhaps next May-June. We have our plane tickets already. Now the planning starts for Provence.

  2. Hi Susan,
    happy planning - Vaison is lovely late May, early June.

  3. The Salade Fraîcheur looks great!

  4. JanJan: I wish you could taste it - delicious!
