Travel Tuesday: French Farmer's Market

French Farmer's Market



Staying on a healthy eating routine can be a challenge when you travel.  There are so many amazing temptations.  Sometimes these indulgences are an essential part of the cultural experience.  When I am in France, you better believe I am going to seek out the nearest LadurĂ©e for macarons.  In England, I enjoy nothing more than a cream tea and scone.  To balance these indulgences, I also enjoy a trip to the farmer's market where I can sample the local specialties.  Not only do I get to try the best fruits and vegetables of the region I am traveling, it is also a fun experience.  You can watch the locals shopping for the night's meal.  And just look at all the lovely colors I saw in this small community market in France!  I had never seen so many beautiful variates of fresh olives in one place.  The market is also a great place to find souvenirs, like the champagne strawberry jam I got in the wine region of France or the heather honey I found in the Scottish highlands.  Enjoying these gourmet goodies back at home is an extra special treat.  Be sure to include a visit to the farmer's market during your travels!
