At the market I fell into step with a young chap who announced 'That went well!' What did? I asked. Turned out he had sold all 5 crates of chestnuts he'd gathered in the woods. That's one of the nice things about Villefranche market, it isn't just professionals. You find people selling a little bit of garden surplus or a couple of dozen eggs or dandelion leaves in Springtime and I guess that's how this market has always been.
You can see a little video of the market here.
