1. Susan,

    Looks and sounds wonderful! Especially those gorgeous green and red peppers AND l'ail aux herbes: miam-miam!

    I'll be in Tours for the month of Oct. and could perhaps make a
    foray down to Lourmarin to visit this lovely town and see where Camus
    lived, etc. Not the high season for les marchés en plein air, I

    Merci bien! -Henry

  2. So many of the Luberon markets are catering to the tourists rather than the people who live there that a market like this is refreshing. Thanks fo bringing it to our attention.

  3. The market looks lovely with such wonderful and colorful produce but, unlike Henry, I was not particularly moved by the photo of the confits d'ail! 🙂 I think it is fun to visit different markets just to see what is a little different in each. But Cucuron has my heart, too!

  4. I talked with someone recently for whom La Tour-d’Aigues is her favorite. She said it has everything she wants, friendly vendors, and a pretty venue. She stressed that it is a "real" market as is, she said, the market in Pertuis. I will be covering the Pertuis market soon.

  5. There are many people to choose to go to this market for the very reason you mention. In the next couple of weeks, I will write about the Pertuis market, another "authentic" market, according to locals.

  6. October is still a busy time for markets. Not the elbow-to-elbow kind of crowds that summer brings but the offerings are still very good! Keep me posted on your travels!
