Aix Market in Provence
Aix, in Provence, is a beautiful city. It's very student-oriented and animated, with the incomparable touch that only Provence has. There's a market that happens twice a week, but there are always fruit and vegetable vendors, and they sell handicrafts and regional delicacies in the Cours Mirabeau. You can try the lavender honey for example, or very dry boar sausages and pork, and delicious Calissons, which is a pastry made out of almond powder. Aix is also where there's some good olive oil, as well as Grasse perfume. The traditional brand is Fragonnard them. The craft market also has Provincial objects made from olive wood, or tablecloths with the famous wasp, found in every household.
