I envy the French on their pride for everything French and it is no wonder that the local industry is alive and well. Local markets and shops selling traditional French products are everywhere and I am always drawn to them. There are times that I need to remind myself that my eyes seem bigger than my tummy at those mouthwatering goodies of theirs.
Every region takes pride of their local products which also show what are endemic in the area. Wines, pates, cheeses, sweets, sausages, honey, hand-painted chinas, baskets, etc. are just among the many things that can be found in these shops.
Here are some snapshots of the local goods on one of the local shops beside a petrol station along the French peage.
I could have taken more pictures but I was later told that it was actually forbidden to take pictures inside the shop. ;-)
