Céret’s Saturday Market, France

Céret, a pretty French town nestled in the foothills of the Pyrenees with a lively Saturday market. This may be just your thing or a little too touristy. Certainly prices are higher and goods cater to tourists and well as locals. However, on a bright morning with dappled sunlight splashed on the pastel buildings it’s a lovely place to stroll the streets, pick up provisions and have a fabulous lunch with a glass of rosé.

I should also mention that Céret was once a favorite haunt of many top early- mid 20th century painters – Matisse, Picasso, Chagall to name but a few – as such it has a formidable Modern Art Museum. Unfortunately no photos are allowed.
