Sainte-Maure de Touraine ~ it’s more than just cheese fame


Last Thursday Sandra and I visited the market at Sainte-Maure. It was the first time we’d visited the market and it’s size and quality was a wonderful surprise. We were both aware  of the town’s fame as France’s premier producer of delicious goat’s cheese and year we went to the International Cheese Festival that was held there (though, at times I could have sworn that it was a celebration of the range of French wine production). We’d no idea that it’s market had such wide-ranging fresh produce; vegetables, fruit, fish, mushrooms, black puddings cooked on site…….do visit. Here are a few images to whet your appetite:

    We went to a fete there last year in May I think, and the market was excellent.
    I notice that the small onions are for sale by volume; the price is advertised per litre.
