I love visiting farmers markets when I travel to different cities. Each of them has its own unique charm and character. The Saturday/Sunday morning farmers market in Le Mans has a vast amount of produce, seafood, and vegetables to choose from. With a very rustic feel everything is sold outdoors from tables and trucks.
The farmers market is located in central Le Mans about a 15 minute walk from the outskirts of Vieux Mans. I took many photos of the market focusing on the produce, meats, and people of the market. In Part 1 I am covering just the produce. I love the colours and the vibrancy of all the different fruits and vegetables.The number of different mushrooms available blew my mind – especially the chanterelles!!!
If you would like to see more photos of the market check out this amazing post about a fellow bloggers experience at one of Le Mans farmers markets.
More pictures after the jump!
All of the produce was so fresh direct from the farmers themselves making me want spend the day in the kitchen creating new recipes.
Lemonade or Orange juice anyone ?
We ended up buying some apples from the market and making a delicious tarte tatin from scratch. Recipe to come soon! Great quality ingredients can mean the difference between mediocre results and amazing results!
