A Weekend in Provence: Day 2 – Uzès

September 10, 2010

Our weekend in Provence continues with a trip to Uzès, located 35kms west of Avignon.  We had heard that the Saturday markets were popular, but we weren’t quite prepared for what was to come.  The main street of Uzès was packed.  Not just with cars mind you, but with people who must have come in from miles and miles around to poke through the seemingly endless supply of Provincial produce.  From local cheese to hand-made soap and from leg ham to fig-encrusted nougat, this place had it all.  All one had to do was wander the streets and kick out a bit of high-school French and you were good to go…

From a weekend tourist’s perspective, there is little else that needs to be said.  Enjoy the pictures…

Once we had finished our lunch, our next stop was the Pont du Gard.  But more on that later…
