There are more farmers selling at the markets in Provence, and a good portion of the goods are coming from the immediate area. For example, the most delicious strawberries, cherries, apricots, melons, goat cheeses, and so much more are grown in Provence. The food hasn’t traveled far to get to the markets. The markets in Provence tend to fill the entire village or town, weaving up and down streets, taking sharp turns, and spilling into public squares. The markets in Paris are straightforward to navigate since they’re usually a couple of consecutive straight blocks. These are just a few of the differences.
