Off to the Farmer's Market

The farmer's market in the Vielle Ville area of Annecy, France. On Tuesdays and Fridays, sellers set up stands, taking over a sizable portion of the Old Town. I was so excited I was out the door by 7am, but the sellers were still in preparation mode. The market seems to hit its peak at around 9am.

Tomatoes of various sizes and colors.

With any country that takes its meat seriously, you run the risk of seeing some thing like this. (Another example: the Atwater Market in Montreal.)

The cheese stand, which sells cheese mainly from the Savoie region.

I couldn't figure out what these pines were for. For digesting?

Bought a basket of raspberries and the small red fruit in the middle. Raspberries are expensive in Japan, but apparently the red fruit grows in the wild. They were incredibly sour and practically translucent. You could see their big red seeds from the outside.
