Very nice pictures, Meg. I am glad to know that someone else is an indiscriminate shopper at open air markets. We call them farmer's markets here in California. i usually lecture myself before I go to be careful about my purshases--then I arrive home with tons of stuff that I should have avoided. Oh well. It's so much fun!!

The best part about our trip to Seattle was starting the day off with a run through the Pike Street Market. What a place!
I couldn't figure out why everyone there didn't weigh 300 pounds.
Then I walked up First Hill. Oh.

That sure brought back memories of shopping in the Paris markets. It's unbelievable what is available in Paris.
After living in towns were the markets were aimed at the overpriced foodies, I've been really impressed by the New Orleans farmers market. It's run by Loyola and they see it as part of their Jesuit mission to encourage local produce. Good prices and good food, but nothing like what you find in Paris.

I've always heard that New Orleans is a wonderful place for food, but it's a bit of a surprise that the Jesuits are responsible for one corner of it!
As for France, the markets are one of the greatest reasons for living here, agreed!
