Flower Market

Every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday morning, the Place de l'Hotel de Ville is filled with a flower market. There are cut flowers for bouquets, young flowering plants for planting in the yard, and larger flowering plants in pots. There are also many starts of fruits and vegetables and lots of herbs.
These peonies were definitely my favorites!
When I walked by the same plaza in the early afternoon, all the flowers were gone, and the plaza had filled with tables and chairs from the restaurants facing the plaza. By late afternoon, the entire plaza was packed. By then, tables from the bars had filled any remaining space. A great place to meet friends for the cocktail hour!
