COLORFUL MARKET IN VAISON- LA- ROMAINE
This is a market we had the opportunity to visit in Vaison-la-Romaine. It is one of the most colorful and fun markets that we have ever seen. I love me a summer market but this one was out this world. So many colors, food and people everywhere. The whole village was a market. It was amazing. We were driving around, visiting villages and doing some wine tasting randomly and all of the sudden were are on our way to Vaison-la-Romaine which it’s famous for its Roman ruins so we were immediately in the mood to go visit it.
WHAT A SURPRISE!
We had past the town before and it seems relative quite. In our way there, we were trapped in traffic for a long time. It was a shocked. We didn’t know what was going on. We left a small village and decide to visit Vaison-la-Romaine and all of the sudden we landed in the middle of giant traffic jam. Thanks God, it was a lovely day, so we just decided to be patient. We had no idea what was going on until we saw the giant ” Market” signs.
We were like: OMG! the whole town was market. We couldn’t drive anymore. There were so many people, children and music coming from all directions. We parked outside the town and walk for a while but even the walk was fabulous because we walked next beautiful vineyards in fabulous sunny day and we arrived to the center of the town it was like a giant explosion of smells, music and color.
A SUMMER MARKET LIKE NO OTHER
This market was like a being in party full of people of all nationalities. There were food-stands, artisans, wine makers everywhere . This market was one of a kind. It was huge, street after street. There was live music. It was big party in the middle of a very old and beautiful town.
It was impossible to visit the Roman ruins of course but we were so happy and had such a great time in the market that was all the day long. We ate, drink, did so shopping, met some interesting people and mingled with the locals. It was a great experience and of course we had something to talk when we came back home at the end of the day. It was one of a kind experience and we hope to go back soon to Vaison-la-Romaine to continue with our visit.
