Originalities of the market, in the old town Annecy 😊

in Market Friday β€’ 3 months ago

Our town of Annecy in France has some quaint places, it's no more something that coud be kept secret indeed...😁

And to participate in this #MarketFriday established a few years ago by my beautiful friend @dswigle, I went to take pictures to show you the picturesque side of the market,
which takes place in an already very original place: the old town


Starting with these fruit stalls framed by the houses bordering the canal....

isn't that already charming and quite a poem in itself...? πŸ˜‰



and of course, as spring starts (then recedes, then comes back πŸ˜…), there are obviously the stars of the moment :

flowers and plants,

daffodils and spring bulbs

those that make us want to call the sun and invite it to drink a tea by the lake....




It's hard to resist the urge and pleasure to plant new flowers, and yet, popular wisdom says that you have to wait until the Ice Saints before planting, at the risk of seeing the plants freeze...

Considering that it snowed again and was very cold last week while the cherry trees were in bloom, this is indeed wise advice for new plantings...



At the market, I also noticed these charming stands that move easily, such as this charming bicycle, in french we name that un triporteur but I didn't find a satisfying word other than scooter...


Here they sell artisan biscuits made with local products


and here, thanks to a light vehicle that can be found at other times in different parts of the city, you are served a coffee, tea or hot chocolate...



as well as below, in this small truck where an artisan roaster offers his coffee beans or ground,

and also offers them as a drink for sale which is always successful on the market where people like to meet around a cup of very good Coffee....


and now, as if everything we had seen so far was not original enough, I offer you this caravan in which you will find wines


it is called LES VINS CELESTES - celestial wines, and aims to be a nomadic cellar that offers you not only wines, but also emotion, conviviality and share (this is their slogan)....a whole tantalizing program , isn't it..? 😁



everyone enjoy the market, that day we even had a distinguished guest with this duck who came to shop anonymouslyπŸ˜‰
She came from the canal which flows just below this little bridge where some market stalls are spread out...



We are going to end this walk through the originalities of this market with this very pretty stand of syrups and jams made from natural products,

natural products which not only serve to decorate the stand but that particularly highlight the jams and jellies which contain all these good things...😍



Scots pine bud jellies with cane sugar and Spruce bud jellies

Jams of mountain rose hips




I wish you a wonderful week-end Lovelies !

Such a beautiful market in such a beautiful city! It's still too cold here for planting anything outside. We had snow last night, but warmer temperatures are coming next week. This would be a lovely time of year to visit Annecy.

we begin to have the spring back here, it came a few weeks ago and then suddenly SNOW, SNOW and cold ...snow in town, this is quite unusual πŸ˜… Today is sunny and the week is going to be slightly warmer...πŸ˜‰
I was glad to share again some views of the old town...

we saw a similar bicycle tent in Poland. this is a very cool idea for selling snacks. wow! how many different equipment for selling food and drinks!!! hehe the duck is walking around the market!!!!! this is a very cool bird!

I was wondering if she was hungry and searching for food, lost and searching the way back, or just wandering curiously in the vicinity.....The ducks here are so accustomed to the people...πŸ˜‰
Thanks for your comment @tali72 and have a bigwigpig_delightfulday.png

if ducks are accustomed to people, then people are kind! many thanks! πŸ˜€

Here they sell artisan biscuits made with local products

They look tasty/delicious. I will look for the local markets in the nearby city (in Szolnok, Hungary) to see whether the locals are doing similar things (artisan foods) or not. There are local foods, but I do not know whether there are local artisan food or not.

Have a nice day and have a nice weekend.
All the best. Greetings and much love from Hungary.

Thank you and wonderful_week_end_redim.png
