The Markets of L'Isle sur la Sorgue Provence France

The colour and movement of the markets at L'Isle sur la Sorgue has to be seen to be believed.  It is a foodie's paradise.  The French artisans take the presentation and quality of produce very seriously. Their displays are yet another example of the culture of beauty and appreciation of art, that pervades the whole of French society.  Take a look around and meet me at the bottom for details of when you can attend this fabulous market and I also have a great tip on where to stay.
