So you rock up at a little Aire just outside of Condom and visit the little campsite next door to pay your “rent” only to discover that there will be a Marche Gourmand happening tonight in the town under the Cathedral. Live music, lots of different foods and wines to choose from…

You walk (quickly) back to the bus to inform the husband that tonight’s dinner of Bolognese which earlier in the day sounded so appetising now sounds rather rubbish! We shall partake in the revelry and eat copious amounts of fine food. Pasta can wait for another night!

The location was just stunning! Right on the steps of the cathedral.

We had limited directions but we literally found it using our noses! The smells were glorious! The party was in full swing with hundreds of people lined up on the trestle tables (this bit never seems to get old to us…every town & village has a ready supply for events just like this!).

Food from around the world was on offer and we jumped right in! Muscles and calamari for me and duck for Dan. The atmosphere was so special with the mariachi band doing the rounds.The best bit was when Dan returned with his duck with all of his pocket money remaining! A wonderful lady in the queue with him had treated him to dinner! Would not accept anything for it either! A random strangers generosity humbled us! We tried to find her with a gift of a bottle of wine but were unsuccessful so shall pay the kind gesture forwards to a random stranger we meet one day!
