the french veggie market

Photographs from an outdoor food and flower market in Provence France. I have been wanting to put these together in a set for a while. I took these pictures on our trip to France last year.
The markets are so inspiring how neatly they arrange everything , and let you know where the vegetables came from on the signs.

Each table was like a work of art with the freshest prettiest food we've ever seen.


Here I've gone and made them vintage looking and maybe a little less vibrant than they were in person but I like the feel of the photographs looking old. Are these veggies making you hungry yet ? we have piles of heirloom tomatoes from our garden,more than we can eat...so much abundance in the vegetable world right now :)

  1. I like how you made the photos look old - they look softer and more illustrative in some ways. I had a wonderful heirloom tomato sandwich today. Sometimes I don't want summer to end :)

  2. I love veggie markets for their colours, smells and feel, I think the old photo look adds a very dramatic emotion to it... I like it... (quite expensive prices in that market too ;O))

  3. I like the vintage look. Never been out of the states (except for a day trip to Acuna, Mexico, but I don't count that!) and would love to travel overseas. Thanks for sharing!
