Spring has Arrived at Beaune’s Saturday Market

This past Saturday was unbelievably gorgeous as warm – 16 degrees Celsius and a bright ball of sunshine in the sky. We decided to emerge from our winter / newborn hibernation and take Clémentine on one of her first outings to the Saturday Beaune market.

The place was bustling and the smell of Spring seemed to be making everyone, not just us, feel effervescent. Here are some photos I took, just to give you a little taste of the arrival of Spring at one of (in my totally unbiased opinion) Burgundy’s best markets;

If this photo doesn’t make you yearn for cauliflower (*ahem* Dad), I don’t know what will.


Ditto for leeks and eggplant (*ahem* Dad, again).

And to you men out there – when was the last time you offered the lovely demoiselle in your life some flowers?
