Assembling the perfect picnic in Provence

Desidero | Jun 1, 201505:43 AM

I'm going to be in the French Riviera and western Provence for several weeks in June. While I intend on visiting restaurants during my stay, I'd also like to assemble lunches from the offerings at Provençal markets. I'm looking for food items that can be purchased and eaten right away (e.g., meats, produce and cheeses), not food that needs to be cooked. As noted above, I'll be visiting Provence in June. With that in mind, what food items should I look for at the markets generally (e.g., peaches) or at specific markets in Provence (e.g., lemons at the market in Menton)?

Many thanks!
