My travels in the Morbihan XXXX

And another simple ride in my area of Morbihan Breton on a cloudy light rainy day and temps in the 11C we did our errands of a normal local family in France.

We decided to get earlier to get to the market at Vannes and get the vegetables and fruits ,cheeses etc. The market was doable today not too crowded so easy to move about and easy parking at République.

We went by our regular fromager or cheese merchant the Menager in the market or marché de Vannes. We pick up our usual goat fresh cheese, brie de Meaux, and ewes milk cheese from the Basque area of France. We move on to the fruit stand  Askil where we loaded on white grapes, figs, avocados, mangoes, clementines, oranges, raspberries, blackcurrants, strawberries, blueberries, and tomatoes. Next stand we got our Roscoffs onions, another we got our Batavia lettuce from Baden ,and yet another one we got our squash before heading to get our mussels and codfish in the Halle aux poissons , on way out we got our baguette breads and chorizo bread sticks at Bellanger right on same area in addition to the inside the Carrefour shopping center.  Bakery info here; http://www.carrefour-vannes.fr/boutique/boulangerie-bellanger/

We stopped next door in the place du poids public into the butchery Le Dru Pierre,  to get a roasted chicken from the local farm, always better, the real deal in France; here they are: https://www.yelp.fr/biz/boucherie-le-dru-pierre-vannes-2

Once out of this shopping we went to the new stores open by our centre commercial Carrefour in Vannes too. Here ,it just opens the Damart chain my wife likes so much where she purchase some blouses, and continue next door to another new one the Du Bruit Dans La Cuisine , where we got our blueberries ginger cake , and orange chocolate bars !!!

Then, we headed for La Halle aux Chaussures to get some day shoes for my boys which they pay !! and we stop to see the latest fashions at our favorite store Armand Thiery same shopping area.  Continuing on to Babou to get some plastic containers and carpets.
