In the neighborhood – Lyon

A day in the Lyon Farmer's Market

This photo was taken at a Lyon farmer’s market the day before a week-long tour of the Rhone Valley. It was a bright and sunny Sunday morning and I was full of anticipation for the wine and culinary adventure ahead of me. It was my first visit to Lyon, which I knew to be a bastion of fine dining, and walked the historic section to take in all of the wonderful aromas wafting from the bakeries and bistros getting set-up for the Sunday rush. The farmer’s market whetted my appetite with vendor stalls filled with olives, the tiniest thumbprints of goat cheese and colorful and attractive displays of fresh fruits and vegetables. Even the voluptuous radishes were ravishing and my mouth still waters to see this photo.
