Our first day in the Sainte Foy Bordeaux appellation and we decided to head off to the Saturday market. The marché in Sainte-Foy-de-Grande is extensive, full of people and had many vendors that we do not get in the marchés in the Dordogne.

Not only was there extensive produce and fruits available, but there was excellent fish, meats, sausages, and my favorite dried fruits stuffed with foie gras. These little delicacies were so tasty and sweet, it was like candy from heaven.

Bottom line if you are visiting the Sainte Foy Bordeaux appellation, you must make time to go to the Saturday market in Sainte-Foy-de-Grande.

The highlight of the day, these dried figs were filled with foie gras. Such unbelievable flavor!

Here is a mixture of the dried figs stuffed with foie gras as well as some prunes stuffed with foie gras. We have both for tonight.

A French speciality, Radis Noir. I just can’t get my head around eating a black radish.

Very interesting way to present and sell Endive. The plant was still attached to the roots in a holder with some dirt. The vendor just broke off the vegitable when you bought it.

Yummy garlic, shallots and onions.

We just could not make up our minds on what we wanted to prepare and eat tonight.

The marché at Sainte-Foy-de-Grande is extensive and almost every street has at least a couple of vendors. However we found one that was still empty.

  1. I am coming for dinner😀
    I do not understand why they do not sell these here. The market in Brive, my favourite, has loads of stalls selling them. Sooooo good.
    Eat one of each for me.

  2. We have never been to the Brive marché so we need to go. I agree that it seems like it would be a great offering in our local Dordogne marchés and I don’t know why they do not sell them. We will surely think of you when we sample them tonight 😉
