Sunday Market

Sunday morning in Capestang….cathedral bells chiming, the Sunday market in the square in full swing, long line outside the boulangérie (bakery). This market has everything: gorgeous produce, olives and tapenades, bread, homemade jams, shellfish, a man with roasted chickens, potatoes and ratatouille (tonight’s dinner), meats, cheeses, pâtés….paella to-go, Asian ready-to-eat, flowers, toys, used books, clothing, leather goods, jewelry, socks and underwear. 91 more words
