Tetbury French Market

All day the wind has been gusting, and bringing with it sheets of rain. But here in the Cotswolds we wrapped up warm and headed out in search of the delights of the French Market, held in Tetbury, and in the streets outside the chocolate shop I used to work in...

This time last year I was working in the chocolate shop and all the French stallholders (who had arrived en masse for the day) were drinking mug upon mug of Charbonnel & Walker hot chocolate. Today was both exciting and liberating, as I got to sample the true French flavour of the market, breathe in the wonderful French smells, and linger at my leisure at each of the stalls... unlike a year ago!

...from wonderful-smelling French lavender, to Reblochon and Raclette cheeses, traditional French soaps, and a freshly baked 'pain' for lunch (the Tartiflette was unfortunately sold out!). After moseying around in the rain we returned laden-down with French goodies, and are eagerly awaiting their return in May! x
