French Groceries | Marché Central, Nancy

I was at a Slow Food Columbus meeting recently and overheard someone mention how many other cities have one central market, whereas Columbus has many scattered farmer’s markets.  Farmers market season is truly gearing up here in Columbus and today’s lovely weather reminded me how beautiful the central market in Nancy was when I visited last month.   The Nancy market had everything from freshly butchered whole lapins, to the famous Bresse chickens, diminutive Periwinkles, tiny glass pots of tangy, fruit-laced yogurts, and tender white asparagus the exact length and thickness of a baby’s arm.  I loved how the fresh herbs were displayed and kept fresh in cascading water fountains.  Here are a few of my favorite photos.
