Marché des Capucins Bordeaux

Summer is of course the best time for fresh stone fruits, melons and vegetables. But any time of year is a great time to visit this covered fresh market, a Bordelais institution.

If you go at mealtime or during the afternoon when an afternoon snack is in order, be sure to find the stalls serving fresh plates of oysters, shrimp and other seafood delicacies. They’re served with a glass of chilled wine and fresh, crusty French baguette. That alone is worth the trek to this Quartier St. Michel neck of the woods in Bordeaux’s city center.

    Great blog! Lots to learn about wine in general let a love Bordeaux wines, but hey… The best way is by tasting right? Haha.
    I’ve just started a Bordeaux-based food/drink blog myself (less educational than yours!) if you want to check it out 🙂
