Twice a week, we have a market
in our neighborhood. When the Sweetest Girl in the World and my niece
came to visit, we went.
They have wide variety of fruits and vegetables, many of which are locally grown. Somehow, I doubt these Pineapples are locally grown.
I absolutely had to buy my niece a chocolate croissant. It’s hard to say no to someone so cute.
I could easily do some major damage to this cheese vendor’s cart and my pocketbook if I let myself go. Check out the variety. Most of them are from Switzerland
or the nearby Savoy region of France
. We used goat cheese
when we made crepes
We spent a relaxing morning wandering around the market, oohing and aahing over the wonderful food.
! I wish that I were rich enough to afford and a good enough cook to get the truffles.
Dried fruits, nuts, olives, beans, peppers, spices, vegetables, many types of mushrooms….
Check out all the different types of greens above. There were more, but I couldn’t fit them all in the shot. She bought some homemade soaps as souvenirs.
The first time we went to this market, I had major sticker shock. A rotisserie chicken, which would be between $5-10 at home was 20 CHF ($22-25 depending on the exchange rate).
