On this last weekend before Christmas Isabella and myself took a quick road trip to Angouleme for no apparent reason. We did end up at a mall eventually, but not before visiting the market in the city.
I mentioned the place before, but today I took advantage of Isabella's new camera for better images.....all taken by her again.
The Jarnac market is undergoing a new build and will not re open until May. Cognac is not much larger than ours, so I always enjoy a visit to Angouleme. My favorite at this location is that there are two eateries which serve market fresh food for lunch. Sadly, Jarnac will not offer such service, very much a miss in my books. They are enlarging the floor space, but apparently did not have enough interest for at market dining.
Anyway. There was a small petting zoo at the entrance today and Isabella enjoyed that as much as I did visiting the stalls inside. The halls were all decorated and people seemed to be int he Christmas mood, some vendors showing their season's best. Markets can get repetitive, but Angouleme seems to change around quite a bit, or maybe it's that we don't visit that often.
Enjoy the pictures.
