To Market, To Market: To the Wonderful Market of L'Ilse-sur-la-Sorgue

Along with drinking all the rose to exist in Provence, our main goal was to visit the famed Sur-le-Sorgue Sunday market. Even Valerie had asked if we were going. 
Bright and early for a Sunday morning after our delicious breakfast, we caught a ride to our 9am train (the only one from Avignon) to L'Isle-sur-le-Sorgue. This time we arrived just as the market stalls were setting up and we began our wandering way through the town. 

The Sunday Market, which was started in the 16th century, runs throughout most of the town and sells everything from crafts , souvenirs, to antiques and food/produce.

We took full advantage of the food options and picked up items to have for dinner that night, picnic style, back at the ranch. Although it was a bit rainy, it was a  lovely day. We had a crepe lunch (with wine of course) before meandering our way back to the station and catching the next train Avignon. 

This market only runs on Sundays, but do bear in mind train times there from Avignon were very limited. That said it was close by (20 mins to the city centre) and cheap to get to at€4.60 return.
