Alan and Grace's Best of France - Dordogne Village Market: How It All Began

That first Sunday on the way to Lascaux we had our very first village-market experience in St. Cyprien.

Ever since then we became two happy market chasers in the Dordogne. : )

Imagine the tastiest strawberries with the richest smell, fromages with Périgord Truffle, walnuts and espelette, the best foie gras you could find that cost 9 Euro per hundred grams, fresh baguette, pain noir, pastries with nutella, and those twenty different flavors of olives (oh how we fell in love with all of them).

We made a stop and picnicked at the back of our car and felt like we were the king and the queen of our own little kingdom. 

Later, when we discovered a flea market in a tiny village on the road, I saw it as a brilliant opportunity for me to learn the art of antiquing. Too bad all my picks were rejected by Alan - I could have bought something really valuable there!
