Market Monday

I went into town to get a sim card for my British phone and to do some shopping today.
Usually shopping happens on Wednesdays, because Wednesdays tend to be pretty quiet and there are literally millions of people here who always decide to shop at the same time.

But I had to go, and as expected, the market town was busy and made even busier for this special pop up Christmas market in the town square.

Lucky me, I had to walk thru it to get to my bank and so had a good look.

In the centre was a stall where a woman was grilling bratwursts. They smelled great!

A bit further along was a stall selling all sorts of antipasto goodies.

Right beside them was a bread baker with his wares. Don’t you love the flour-baked message on that fabulous artisan bread?

Next door was a knitter with crazy woollen and hand-knit sweaters. I just loved all of them.

And last, I met a jeweller who was making these beautiful pendants. He takes a piece of nature; a feather, leaf or acorn, and he copper plates it, and then he silver plates it, so at the heart is the actual bit of nature. How lovely is that?

A last (longing) look at the crispy duck lunches and off I go to get my shopping and business done.

    Perfect for a stroll though town and good lunch options. The jewelry is wonderful – what a concept.
