When I was in Provence a few years back with some of my friends, we stayed in a little village that is outside the larger town of Uzes. It was about 10 minutes down the road, so we ended up doing much of our shopping at the mega-mart Carrefour, but one day we ventured into the village center in Uzes. It turned out to be market day there, a fortuitous coincidence that let us see, smell, and taste the the town, mostly among locals. Below, I offer some of the scenes of our day.
We wandered around the main street, where the stalls were primarily clothing, dry goods, books, art, and packaged items.
Inside the walls of the old city center, we found more custom items, such as food, flowers, and spices.
