Love markets. Such vibrant places - full of life and laughter, not to mention food!

Think I'll move on to the fruit and veggie counter tho!

Forgot to say ... thanks for commenting on Menton DP the other day - you know I didn't even notice the guy outside McDonald's making that rude sign! Thanks for telling me;)

J'adore la saucisse, miam miam. I love markets in Anglo-Saxon countries . What is funny is Anglo-Saxon people (does that make sense au fait?) like French markets. I like theirs better :-))

We have similar places here. I'm never sure whether to trust the food i'm afraid to say - i'm sure it must be fine, really, certainly looks it! Do you buy from here?

Hi Jilly,
Yep, they are truly vibrant and you always bump into poeple that you haven't seen for a squillion years.
Marie,
The sausages etc. are not Anglo-Saxon, and that's what makes the market; all the produce with a foreign influence and all the foreigners who teach us how to appreciate their fare. (Coming from a long line of Anglo-Saxon Protestants, we grew up on red meat and 3 veg. seven days a week.) When I was 13, I met an Italian who was eating spaghetti for his lunch. I felt so sorry for him to be eating such rubbish. Today we consume more pasta than in all of Italy and we have many times more restaurants per head of population than the bigger Australian cities. Our cost of living is lower also.
Lynn,
The central market in town has the best quality fresh produce, the best prices by far and an atmosphere that is 'olde worlde'. It's top quality and great fun. Most people go early and then eat breakfast on a Sat. morning while watching the world go by. You will hear every language spoken whilst eating one's hokkien noodles. I love to buy deep sea fish at the market, perhaps some Dr. Kikkoman's cleansing Chinese tea, cheese, the variety is endless. I think I'll buy a round-based wok next time and some kangaroo steaks, oyster sauce, garlic and onions. You're all invited to tea next Satdy. night. It might taste like shit (a Paul Hogan expression, meaning superbe,) but, boy we will enjoy ourselves !

Ce ne sont pas les saucisses qui manquent, quand je vais chez ma soeur en Allemagne!! il y a même des saucisses à bière, que je mange en buvant une Hannen Halt, la bière de Dusseldorf ( il y a de la Foster aussi en France elle est très bonne).
