Our local village Hythe was buzzing today as the French Market was in town.
I’m not sure how many times a year the French Market comes to Hythe but it certainly attracted the locals as the sun shone down on the dozen or so stalls selling everything from French baguettes (freshly baked in a trailer beside the stall) to vintage records and French classic Movies on DVD.
As I went from stall to stall with my bag growing with items I found wonderful globe artichokes, heirloom tomatoes, garlic from Southern France, romanesco cauliflowers, pates, dried hams, Brittany honey, patisseries to make your mouth water and of course the French strings of onions. Oh dear I am sounding like Ratty in the Wind in the Willows describing his picnic hamper contents to Moley before they set off in their boat down the river.
Well after an hour my shopping bag full home I went and what a feast we are going to have this weekend.
