Bio Marché

The first Sunday in June is the Bio Marché. It fills much of the area behind Chateau Bonnafous near Villeseque des Corbières. The setting is perfect for the event as there is plenty of room for all the vendors and space for a petting zoo, roaming musicians and even a bicycle powered carousel. I am particularly drawn to the carousel with its characters a coccinelle (ladybug), cricket, grenouille (frog) and a Grasshopper.

The arts are represented in many ways. There are woodcutters, basket weavers, jewelry makers, artists painting children’s faces and more.

The Ektara is an instrument which is new to me. It is both stringed and the base is a drum.

As always, there is more than covered in these photos. You can buy an organic meal and enjoy it in these beautiful surroundings. Handmade kitchen knives and other cutlery are available from local craftsmen. There is always something for everyone.   Bisous, Léa

  1. Wow just wonderful Lea! Ok first I am heading for some of those gluten free treats! Then onto the carousel, the cherries before they all go! And the breads and pastries which look so delicious I would have to cheat on my gluten rree diet! Then I will start sauntering around all the rest! But first, a coffee! 😄 xxx

    1. You better let me know when you arrive as I want the pleasure of coffee with you and could even be talked into a few more cherries… 🙂 There was more that was gluten free but I had camera issues. xxx
