What is it about French markets that are so much better than English ones? I hate lazy, cultural stereotypes, but it would appear that, in some areas, the French definitely have more flair than we do. A French market comes to Market Harborough a couple of times a year and it really is a joy.
Take a look at these photos and tell me if you’ve ever seen anything this appealing on an English market stall. And while you’re at it, have a listen to this wonderful song from Rowan Atkinson’s ‘Live in Belfast’ album from 1980.
