That's a great story! I love learning these colorful stories behind things that you don't usually think to question. I wish I could buy my onions from a French guy on a bicycle. But of course, it's a long way by boat from Brittany to Cleveland.

Thanks for the comment! I think it's a real shame they are a dying breed - I guess it's no longer "exotic" to buy French onions these days, when you can get mangoes and artichokes all year round at the local supermarket.
Anyway, you've got Zubal's books in Cleveland which I would LOVE to have around the corner from me...;)

Our farmers' markets here have all kinds of onions including the pink and red ones; many of the sellers also braid their garlic. Much better than the supermarket varieties.

Yes, I love braided garlic and it seems to keep better than individual heads too. The onions never last long enough for me to say, though!

I lived in Brighton Sussex from 1939(birth)and i can remember the onion sellers with the strings of onions hanging from the handlebars of their bikes,they used to store the onions near shoreham harbour if i remember correctly.
My father was a greengrocer and would buy strings from them.
Going to Roscoff on 15/05 for the daybut the onions have got very expensive now.

Yes, it is a shame, that so many cultural institutions are becoming extinct. But perhaps this is just because we project so much nostalgia and feel that everything that's "old" must be better than what is now. Still, i sometimes crave a more basic life, without so much technology. Preparing your own food at least sometimes help me to satisfy this need .
