Markets of Provence: Food, Antiques, Crafts and More



Join us for a virtual trip across the ocean to France for a tour of the countryside’s most delightful markets! We’re pleased to slide into summer on Tuesday, May 24 by celebrating the publication of Markets of Provence: Food, Antiques, Crafts and More by Marjorie R. Williams.

Marjorie says that markets are a window into the soul of a place. In her new book, she offers a portal to the soul of Provence, which is famous for its breathtaking landscapes, rich history, flavorful foods and extraordinary wines. Markets of Provence is a guide that whisks readers away to thirty of the best markets in Provence, complete with detailed maps and essential insights for both first-time visitors and seasonal tourists.

In addition, the book profiles local vendors, answers questions about buying, browsing and tasting etiquette, recommends local restaurants, and offers essential French phrases for navigating the markets.

Peter Mayle, author of A Year in Provence, calls Markets of Provence, “Thorough, accurate and mouth-watering,” and “Essential reading for all market-hoppers.” Provence is a place of extraordinary beauty and bounty and its markets have been the beating heart of Provencal since the Middle Ages. We hope you’ll join for this wonderful bridge into summer and enjoy a glass of the Whispering Angel Côtes de Provence rosé from Château d'Esclans.
