Our local market in Roquefort les Pins has opened again, albeit under rather different conditions.  There are only a handful of stalls and a strict one-way system in place with lots of barriers.  However, if it means we can get fresh local produce and get outside while shopping I’m all for it.  Here’s what I bought this week at Roquefort market.

Enter here. Rules and hand sanitiser. No wandering around. No loitering!

Choose your fruit and vegetables at Roquefort market from behind a barrier. Social distancing in place.  Most people are wearing masks.

I bought local strawberries from the town of Carros, young courgettes with their flowers still on grown by the stall holders themselves, local asparagus and a melon from Cavaillon. I was also very pleased to find a muguet (lily of the valley) for May Day. You can read about the tradition of giving muguet here.
