Wednesday Morning Apples

Sadly, the village shop closed over Christmas which is tough if you don't drive. Still, travelling vans do bring food to the village on a regular basis. You can buy quail, duck confit, sausages, pork chops, beef to make daubes, or to put on the grill.  And, on Wednesday mornings, you can stock up on mostly locally-grown fruit and vegetables. 

The woman who runs this little stall sets up shop in front of the war memorial just across from the post office. Today, she was selling different varieties of apples, pears and potatoes as well as pots of homemade apple jam. I bought a jar and am now trying to resist making toast with the sturdy loaf I just picked up at the boulangerie, slathering it with doux butter and trying out the chunky confiture.
