Since time in memorial TUESDAY morning is known as market day in Gordes. Gordes is a very beautiful mountain village located in the area of Luberon in Provence France. The village has a castle and the view from the mountain top is fantastic! In the surrounding plains below one can get a glimpse of the beautiful lavender fields, olive trees orchards, and the vineyards. The lavender fields were already harvested when I arrived in August to my disappointment. However market day compensated for upon see all the produce and food products…. I felt like I was in culinary heaven!!!
Market day with Jude Orlino, Alessandro Rabboni, Serena Sabatini, Cinnamon and Axelle Van Besauw, Francesca Rabboni, Flavio, Gian Pa0lo Rabboni with Jennifer, Elsja Borromeo and kids, and Jay Orlino at the cafe and location of Russel Crowe’s movie “A Good Year” was filmed in Gordes. (Cedric and Jasmine Van Besauw, Sam, Claire Proctor were also with us but not in the picture. Sadly group photo was taken by fashion photographer Jackie Borromeo, the summer before he passed away. )
Cantalope mellons from Cavaillon are the sweetest!
