The Finer Things in Life...

Yesterday we strolled to the town's Sunday Market and had a snoop around. 
Sadly our town market would never rate as a top notch  French affair 
but still there were several foodie stands which inspired a dribble and drool. 
The lady cooking 'les crepes' was really sweet and her produce, 
after a few degustations was sublime.

However, sadly the euros couldn't stretch to making a few purchases. 
Quality food here in France is excessively expensive;
as are the bills which keep on rolling in.

Nowadays I tend to buy all my grocery shopping in the UK, 
where everything is, on average, 30% less expensive than here in 
the land of cheese and snails; how times have changed...

I know what you mean (although I consider the UK pretty pricey too :)) - these are wonderful market shots!

Krystal said...

it is sad that markets tend to be more expensive, here too..
At least you got to buy some crepes - priorities for sure! Those are my favorite =)
