A morning at the covered market of Sète

    A stroll to the Sète covered market, one of the little pleasures that I offer myself in all simplicity during my stay in the Thau archipelago.

    All the flavours of the South

    The covered market of Sète is a paradise for epicureans. The stalls are full of local produce and mouth-watering specialities: sun-drenched fruit and vegetables, wines and cheeses of character, shellfish, fish and crustaceans, not forgetting the famous tielles, or the zézettes of Sète. When you're curious and greedy like me, you don't know what to think!

    After enjoying a cup of coffee and a few sweets, I begin my journey of the senses. I taste a delicious tapenade that will be ideal for an aperitif with friends, take advantage of the advice of a fishmonger to learn which wine will go best with the sea bream I have just bought, choose a few vine peaches for dessert, before letting myself be tempted by a tielle and a mussel chausson...

    An exceptional atmosphere

    What I appreciate most here is the atmosphere that reigns in the place: noise, laughter, and the accent of the shopkeepers singing in my ears... total change of scenery! The must, in addition to the small discussions with the producers, is the possibility to taste oysters accompanied by a local white wine, at the table in the middle of this joyful hubbub. During each of my visits, I give myself this little pleasure, a moment of relaxation which makes my holidays all the more delicious...
