Artist's Description

“In France, shopping for dinner in the open air by vendor and not by supermarket aisle, is simply the norm. In the very heart of Paris, Lyon, Marseille, Nice, Aix-en-Provence and the other great cities of France, producers and vendors arrive early in the morning to set up their stalls in markets around their respective cities and lay out their goods.

The customers arrive in throngs, baskets and market sacks across their arms. By mid-afternoon, the market has closed for another day.

In rural areas the choices may be more limited but the traditions are the same. Everyone in any given region is aware of the direction in which to head to find the closest market on any given day. Food purveyors move from village Anyone who thinks of a farmer’s market as a Sunday novelty should spend a month or two in France. There, buying produce from farmers and meat from butchers is not a way of distinguishing one’s self from market to village market during the week, choosing those most likely to bring them profits. Then, generally, they gather together on Saturdays and Sundays in the largest municipality in the area.
