A FARMERS' MARKET



On the outskirts of Jarnac, on the road towards Segonzac is a melon farm who all year round hosts a small but fine producer's market on their premise. 

This is the market where I found the raw cream butter and the smoked duck breast stuffed with Foie Gras. 
As with all markets, the summer is when things get really exciting. More variety, more vendors and of course more buyers. Though it's small and Friday morning is a big market day in Jarnac, it's busy every Friday.
Locals buy local. That's a fact. And again, one can observe lots of socializing going on. I picked some Tomatoes when I tried to understand the conversation between two regulars who said basically the harvest is not as good this year than last. Which harvest I am not sure. 

Enjoy the images.
