Marseille market – France

This is the weekly market in Marseille, the oldest and second largest city in Southern France. I visited in the peak of autumn so luscious grapes, pretty artichokes, decadant mushrooms, fresh herbs, chestnuts and wet walnuts were the highlights of the market scene.

The market is set up on the pavement on Saturdays with makeshift stalls selling fresh seasonal food, flowers and brick-a-brack.
