Sunday Morning Market in Agen


Morning Glory!
The French week begins on Sunday in Agen.
This most important market in the Lot-et-Garonne is at the Place du Pin on Sundays--
then repeats on Wednesday and twice again on Saturdays at the Graviers and Place du Laitiers.

Every week.
All year long.

These thousand-year-old Sunday morning secular gatherings worshipping the colors, textures and tastes of the farmer's labor are the foundation of every French village, town and city life.

These markets are also the building blocks of every cooking class I teach in Gascony. Whether professional chef groups or passionate amateurs or just with friends, we, too, begin each week here in Agen...

First Coco beans for a summer 'cassoulet'.

and by 1 o'clock on a gorgeous Sunday in September ends here... at the French Table at Camont.



Bonne Dimanche!
