France: Gordes – Farmers’ Markets
Exploring the stunning scenery of Provence is not just about seeking out lavender fields (stay tuned), but also visiting the mountaintop medieval villages and stumbling on spectacular markets. Gordes is just one of these Provence villages on a hilltop position with panoramic views with a castle and medieval streets and buildings. But it’s the Gordes markets that blow you away – authentic Provence stuff being sold by local merchants – lavender items, food, clothing, Provençale dishes, decorations, handicraft, fruits and vegetables, and more food. Fuet-style sausage made from pork, olives, mushrooms, duck, were particularly awesome!
