This year I once again had a stall at St Pierre d'Allevard's Christmas Market. Organised by the local farmers it took place on the Sunday before Christmas, and along with the local food producers were local artisans showcasing their work.
For me the highlight of the day was yet again the fabulous lunch organised for the stallholders, wild boar casserole with polenta, wine, bread, cheeses and a selection of tarts and cakes - all made by the stall holders. Fabulous!
It was quieter than last year, maybe because it was too close to Christmas or maybe the economic climate has just got everyone watching their centimes, but nevertheless it was a good day :)
