Flower Markets are in Bloom

After months of weekends with slim pickings on the calendar, flowers, farms and vide greniers are bustin’ out all over.

Although the skies are overcast on Easter Day here in the Lot-et-Garonne, we check out the Marché aux Fleurs et Vide Greniers in Duras.  We’re somewhat addicted to vide greniers but rarely buy anything.  However, today we splurge on some local craft beer, a gently used mandoline slicer, and a 10-minute Reiki massage for my husband’s aching back.

We also buy some tomato plants — we look forward to tasting the tomate poire jaune variety this summer.

The Local Buzz What’s On section is your best first stop for finding out about  vide greniers, markets and other events.   Be sure to mark your calendar for these upcoming flower and plant foires, fêtes and marchés:
