Shopping at the weekly market in Ambert, a pretty little town about half an hour away from our village, is always a pleasure.  It's every Thursday morning, come rain or shine.
What can I say?  The French know how to live....

On market days, (and on most other days as well), we build a wood fire at night and feast.
