Lalinde, Eymet and Beaumont vide grenier and brocante

St Pierres Day and a public holiday with a wide range of markets to visit today.

Freshly shucked Brittany oysters with a glass of chilled Bergerac sec, delicious !

First on the list is Eymet with a Foire à tout / everything for sale in a big paddock on the outside of Eymet, followed by a white wine and oysters public lunch in the village square. In addition to wine and oysters there were seafood platters, moules/mussels, prawns,  sausages, duck breast, pork kebabs,

Fried goats cheese wrapped in air dried ham

small round goat cheese wrapped in ham and fried on the grill, melon with red berries and all available with nice hot frites. We weren't looking for anything particular at the Foire à tout, , but bought a nice oil painting,  Nicolas Lancret ' Après la Chasse '  for hanging in our hallway.

Beaumont in Fête

After Eymet and a good lunch we headed off to Beaumont to wander around their Brocante market and enjoy the flowers strung across the streets for their summer Fête, we weren't tempted by anything and came back to Lalinde to check out our own

Our new

Vide Grenier and found 2 nice bedroom side tables for future use in Chambre 4.
