L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue – Sunday Market

One of the best things about Provence is its markets, in a different town each day of the week. My favorite and one of the biggest markets – antique and brocante – is in L’Isle sur-la Sorgue on Sundays. To get a parking place you must go early. Sippers will remember having coffee and croissants at the Cafe de France (near the church and the flower market) as we watched the vendors set up. Maggie and I did that as well – and sketched as we took it all in. The markets in Provence are hard to beat, and especially this one.

Those of you who followed our blog from Provence last summer may remember the picture of the red shoes set out all down a street. This is from the same place this year and is for a store at the end of the street. It’s off the main path of shoppers, but this certainly brings them in.
