Bursting with life, vibrant colours and tantalising aromas, it’s easy to lose oneself amongst the expansive array of fabulous fresh produce on offer in the Monaco’s Condamine market. Walking around the Place d’Armes where the market is held each day, it’s almost impossible to choose from all the delicious delights on offer. In every direction are the most divine strawberries, the juiciest oranges, the greenest limes and the freshest micro herbs, just to add the finishing touch to a delicious salad. Fresh mushrooms, still covered in soil and their earthy scent just screaming “buy me!”, bright green peas and broad beans perfect for shelling and throwing together with fresh lemon juice and virgin olive oil for a quick lunch. The choice is mesmerising and nothing beats an early morning walk around the stalls to bring inspiration for the day. Mixed in with a heady aroma of fresh coffee and warm pastries, the only sensible option is to take a seat at the Place du Marché cafe to enjoy a coffee or freshly squeezed juice and soak up the atmosphere before finally deciding what to buy!
