September City Daily Photo Theme Day: Open Air Market


Until now, I have mostly shown you Notre-Dame market. This is the smaller market held on Saturday mornings in front of Saint-Louis cathedral, for this month's Theme Day. I hope you like cheese, that's where I bought mine last Saturday!
---------------------------------------
Jusqu'à présent, je vous ai plutôt montré le marché Notre-Dame. Voici celui qui se tient le samedi matin devant la cathédrale Saint-Louis. J'espère que vous aimez le fromage, c'est ici que j'en ai acheté samedi !

Love outdoor markets; love cheese! I seem to recall from my studies that such markets have been held either inside or outside cathedrals in Europe for over a thousand years...or longer...

Jacob said...

Re tee shirts - Don't be silly; you didn't offend...but it seems to me they ought to offer tee shirts which would be appropriate for a gent like me...not sure what that would be, though! :-)

Pour mes photos c'est suivant le cas je demande si je peux prendre une photo mais l'attitude est alors plus posee. Dans d'autres cas je prends la photo sans demander l'autorisation. Dans les 2 cas je ne suis pas totalement maitre de la lumiere ou du fond, ces personnes m'etant etrangeres.

Quite a background for am outdoor market! Thank you, yes, I do like cheese. Can I have a nice Beaujolais to go with it?

I love cheese. It's my guilty pleasure. OK one of them anyway. These images are so beautiful I love them almost as much as cheese.

Thérèse said...

What a delicious choice!

Kate said...

What a setting for a market! And the selection of cheese, I'd be in heaven!

Ted Bundy - that would give me the creeps; there's some minds I really don't want to get into! :)

I love cheese! I also think French markets are particularly appealing.

The Baroque music is a nice touch on your blog -:)

Dur métier que celui de fromager, un vrai sacerdoce. Ils viennent de loin les commerçants tu sais parfois ?
J'irai plutôt par chez toi que du coté d'Olivier cela semble mieux achalandé dans mes goûts. J'espère qu'il y a aussi un marchand de légumes secs où acheter des loukoums et des citrons confits ?

Bonjour Cieldequimper !
Je vois souvent tes commentaires et ce matin j'ai décidé de venir faire un tour à Versailles.
On s'y croirtait entre les portrait célèbes et la musique de chambre.
Quel étale de fromages. Je ferais un repas qu'avec du bon pain et tout plein de sortes de fromages.
Bonne journée !

I do like cheese, even French cheese, sometimes, and they have a great choice here!

paul said...

Mouthwatering display of cheeses. Too tempting!

Tracy said...

I love cheese! And the view!

Kaori said...

I LOVE cheese! But that may just be too many choices for me...I'd never be able to leave with just one :D

BaysideLife said...

Hard to know what to look at first. The beautiful church or the cheese. I'm afraid the cheese would win. I Love cheese.

Rob and Mandy said...

Tres sympa!

Loree said...

I just love open air markets.

Francisca said...

Oh, that's a mean thing to do to me, Ciel... I LOVE cheese and I especially LOVE French cheeses. I have lots of cheese stories. What a fantastic setting for an open air market.

Kim said...

Thank you, thank you for these beautiful cheeses. I wish I could taste! But I can taste that gorgeous blue sky above the market scene and the beauty of Saint-Louis cathedral. I just love it, from the street lamps to the striped fruit stall. So, is that man filming you while you are taking his photo? :-)

Awesome place for a market! I would spent a lot of time in front of the cheese counter... :-)

Pietro said...

I wonder if among those cheeses there is the Fontina della Valle d'Aosta!

Fromagerie is another name for heaven I think :o)

donnie said...

Tash said...

Lovely & yummy.
For a joke, I tried clicking Yuck on the Reactions...as if I didn't like cheese - if that's at all possible - but it wouldn't accept it ... hee-hee.
