Our market is not as quaint as the French markets but I still love the busy streets of market day. Just a few blocks from my house, the city center is filled with merchants. There are a couple flower stalls, a couple fruit stands but most of it is clothes and even underwear. (It took me a while to get used to seeing the Italian women trying bras on over their clothes right there in the square.)
There are some greats finds though. Today I bought a perfect Italian black scarf that will work now and into spring. Also found a gorgeous wrap belt in the softest butter leather. This one is a gift. I already have one and wear it all the time. Are people wearing these in the States? They are about 9 feet long and wrap around and around then tie in the front. Super cute even with just a black turtleneck.
