Marseillan-Midnight Craft Market

We had a lovely holiday in the South of France, staying in a small fishing port called Marseillan. There is an active artist's community here- wonderful light and warm weather, although it is very windy at times. The midnight artisan's market was very atmospheric. Where else can you shop for art and craft after dark ? I met a lovely mixed media artist called Sylvie MARTI, who has a shop called Duo d'Ateliers. I liked her work, for its varied style and media, and of course the texture! I particularly like the background of the radishes and the chicken, which is actually painted on wood and then made to look like wood panelling.
