*A Trip to the Continental Market*

This weekend the continental market was back in town.

We love visiting these different markets we always have in town, they are always so full of colour & life.

It is so wonderful to see the different sights, sounds & smells at these markets ~ although I'm vegetarian so sometimes these meat stalls although I do love the look of all the produce the smell can be a little bit overwhelming for me!

There are always so many beautifully laid out stalls but it is quite hard to get a good photo of them as they are always so full of buyers. Luckily this time I did get a few good ones but there were lots of other stalls I would have loved to have quickly got a snap of. I just love those stalls selling all different types of olives with all the colours, textures & scents.

Here is the crepe man making delicious crepes for hungry customers on a sunny Sunday morning.
I just can't wait for the next speciality market to visit.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend too.
