Five Days In Languedoc- Roussillon: Lunch in Narbonne

We took a break from vineyards for lunch in the ancient town of Narbonne, the agreed upon birthplace of French wine culture. Join me as we take a tour of one of the most emmense food markets I have ever seen.

I can’t really explain how wonderful this lunch was. The images must speak for themselves. This wonder of a place is the definition of local food. and the restuarants and bars that populate it are serving up some of the most delicious dishes.

I took the flip cam in with me so as not to freak out the locals a bigger camera (it was their lunchtime) but got some great footage of the scale of Les Halles de Narbonne.

Oh and this one is only about 6mins or so.

Watch. Share. Love. Enjoy!
