New season Asparagus at  the Apt Market. At 6€ a bunch, you’re paying a premium – it’ll be 4€ or even 2€, in 30 days time!

Les Primeurs – literally meaning, ‘freshness’, are the early season vegetables much sought after by the French. Crowds mass around the market stalls and the supermarkets promote their arrival.

Tradtionally, les primeurs are cooked gently and lightly – no heavily boiled brussel sprouts here. The French want to savour the newness of Spring, the crunch and the flavour.

Pourquoi pas? Why not?

The famous ‘Fraise de Carpentras’ – strawberries from nearby Carpentras.
