Postcard from Burgundy II: Saturday Market

It was a perfect sunny morning. I woke up at 7:30 AM and snuck out while Tyler and Henry were still asleep. I walked into the village and had a cafe au lait. I continued on to the center of town to explore the fabulous Beaune Saturday Market. It was so much fun to take my time and slowly explore every nook. There were all kinds of plants, spices, cheeses, fruits, vegetables, meats, seafood, olives, roasted chickens, linens, clothing, toys... you name it. It was a cross between a green market and NYC street fair. I purchased a perfect market basket and some goods for our apartment.  Tonight we had a fabulous dinner of Dijon rubbed chicken, roasted fingerling potatoes, asparagus and a salad of cucumber and cherry tomato. Of course, we enjoyed a local Burgundy with it! For lunch we had olives, goat cheese, melon and baguette. The French are quite passionate about food. I can see why!
