  1. In my village, there is a market of local producers every friday in the late afternoon. There is a butcher, 2 or 3 fruit and vegetables stalls locally produced , a cheese and butter producer, a local producer of honey. Sometimes someonecome along selling shoes, another one selling clothes, I am afraid that’s all.
    This market was first operated in the XII th century, on a little shadowed square just by the church and the townhall.
    Nobody complain.
    Small is beautifull.
