in search of excellent markets in France

jenn | Mar 9, 2004 06:38 PM

The recent addition of one more chowpup has caused the price tag on the family trip to europe to get steep. Even with our beloved Paris hotel [a block from the Maubert market with kitchen access] affording more than a week with four people is going to be rough and face it, less than a week is hardly a vacation. It has been suggested that an excellent way to go would be to rent a house in France and cook meals at home. The idea of shopping and cooking in France just makes me tremble with anticipation but where to go?

When I look at things like the book "Markets of Provence" I am simply overwhelmed by the choices in towns and markets. So tell me dear traveling 'hounds, where would you go in France in late October or early November [yes, yes, the truffle and game season!] to hang for a week, cooking and eating?

Quaint towns with excellent weekly markets and a cafe or two [oh and a bakery to send the older pup to buy bagettes!] are highly desireable. No Michelin starred restaurants need be mentioned.
