If you're interested in gaudy shopping baskets, yucky children's hats, or 1950's women's corsets, then yesterday's Fair was for you.
Otherwise there were sausages,
and yet more sausages.
And a couple of friendly blokes selling nougat.
I go every year, and it's always the same. However I did buy a single 'Roma' Tomato plant for €1; Romas are always useful for cooking.
That's it for another year.
And you didn't buy any sausages?ReplyDelete
I'm on a diet.Delete
Then they pack up and tour English towns and cities for the next six months to where they have persuaded Town Halls that a French market with all its tat is a must-have cos it's French.ReplyDelete
And, boy, was there some tat there yesterday!Delete
My husband would be at the sausage stalls.ReplyDelete
Greetings Maria x
Normally I would too, but I'm not allowed either cheese or sausages at the moment.Delete
Ha-ha, you summed it up perfectly. Who buys those corsets? Surely not all those chic thin French women!ReplyDelete
I didn't notice a queue.Delete
The food stalls look good - the ham in particular.ReplyDelete
I didn't see any cheese but I would be a starter for that as well.Delete
There were quite a few cheese stalls, but it was mostly ghastly clothes.Delete
I've always saidReplyDelete
" you can't get enough sausage !!!"
I thought the Mediterranean diet was supposed to be healthy. There could be some serious amounts of artery clogging lard in those bangers. There's a Macron-Merkel-Juncker slogan out there: "Stop complaining and eat your salami."ReplyDelete
No Austrian Spring today. Peeing down. And cold blast from Scandinavia.
I'm just back from the Doc's, and she told me to continue with my diet.... I'm on course.Delete
I wish we had some of the sausages stalls here , my son is comeing back from EU next week and that is the things that he miss when he is here.ReplyDelete
They are very tempting; and of course very delicious.Delete
Not the most inspiring Fair but I'm sure I would have found something to spend my money on !!!! XXXXReplyDelete
I did manage to spend €1. That's enough.Delete
Diets are never easy and It must have been hard to pass on all that sausage. Good for you for resisting the temptation.ReplyDelete
Luckily I have very good will-power.Delete
Funny, one of my colleagues is from France and regularly bemoans not being able to find a proper selection of cheeses here, but she's never mentioned horrible hats or dodgy dresses. Maybe the spectacular array of polyester frights at the local market here fits that niche for her?!ReplyDelete
Small town country fairs over here are usually outlets for stuff that won't sell elsewhere, hence the horrors on view. I don't think anyone buys the clothes here either.Delete
What? No nougat ? How can you resist it?ReplyDelete
No, I don't eat sweets at all. I wasn't even tempted.Delete
