The market or marché of Vannes is sublime !!!

I was again by the wonderful market in Vannes, It has been about 4 yrs not there as do not have my dear Martine with us, It took some courage to come back to a place she lived by, the market, This time we came on Wednesday, when we usually would come on Saturday, The market is one of the best , and again running for the best of France competition where it has been ranked as high as 4 and always in the top 10 of France ! In passing will tell you again on one of my favorite cities and my wonderful beautiful capital city of Vannes in my Morbihan breton dept 56 of my lovely Bretagne and in my belle France!  This is an underrated city that must be visit more and I know we have plenty to see here but you come and will be hook by it, I know because all friends that have come love it as I. I will tell you again on the market with new text and pictures, and updated links ; this is it, the market of Vannes!

It covers a large area and today it look as it has grown ! It can access by the place Lucien-Laroche, but also by Rue Saint-Vincent and rue Le Hellec, opposite the post office, where we parked in parking République. It is spread over the Place des Lices and the Place du Poids Public, that offer you all the fresh products you want. We come here for the cheeses, fruits, veggies, and odds on ends, The market is held on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 8h to 13h30.

We were so happy and impressed by the fact that the merchants recognise us !!! I could not believe it ! After all these years missing, I was standing in front of our favorite fruit and veggies stand, and both the lady and guy came out to greet us and to say Hi ! Giving us freebies to taste and to take home as usual, Market life at its best human form ! We love it !!!
