Markets . And no supermarkets !
We all know what a farmers’ market is, but does it exist in your town? One of the pleasures of visiting France is that they are everywhere! “Le marché”, is part of life in almost all towns and large villages in France, so much so that the market can be seen as part of France’s historic heritage.In some countries like in the UK or USA, the farmers’ market is a tradition that has been revived. In France, the tradition has never disappeared as traditional fruit and vegetable markets, as well as markets offering a much wider array of goods, have always remained a part of life in France.( Ici & Là Nature Blogspot )

The market, as a source of fresh fruit and vegetables, is an integral part of France’s famed tradition of good eating and for that reason it is as authentic an experience as one can wish to find. Most towns and large villages have a large market once a week; but in larger towns, markets may take place twice a week, or even every day.( Ici & Là Nature Blogspot )
The smaller the market, the more it will tend to be an outlet for local producers. In rural areas, it is still possible to find markets where small farmers sell just their own produce – potatoes, vegetables and fruit in season, flowers, farm-produced cheese, home-made bread, eggs, and even a living rabbit or two!

Typical French markets are a mix between the farmers’ market and a traders’ market, with stalls offering local produce straight from the farm standing alongside fruit and vegetable stalls, cheese stalls and other stalls offering a full range of produce.( Ici & Là Nature Blogspot )
