Sydney’s Corner: Arles Street Markets
All about the Market
If you are in Arles, France and want to know a good place to eat, go to the Wednesday and Saturday Street Market. I like the Saturday street market. It is bigger than the Wednesday Market. They have food on both days. On the Saturday Market, they have animals for sale. On Wednesdays, they have lots of toys and food.
All about Cheese
In Paris there is scary cheese. At the market in Arles there is even scarier cheese. There is green cheese and red cheese and moldy cheese and cheese with blue dots on it. The scarier the better! I like all kinds of cheese. My favorite cheese is the green cheese. In the green cheese there is pesto.
The history of cheese is cool. Do you know how cheese started? I will tell you. There was a guy that was traveling with milk in an animal stomach. It curdled and turned into cheese. He called it cheese. Cheese started about 4000 BC. In France and Italy they have 400 different types of cheese and in Britain they have 700 different cheese types. Did you know you can make cheese from reindeer, yak, cow, sheep, goat and buffalo milk. You can pretty much make cheese from any animal that produces milk. I think that yak cheese would taste good.
All About Animals
At the market there were animals. There are geese, ducks, chickens and bunnies. One of the chickens laid an egg. There are mostly brown bunnies but there was one black bunny. The bunnies are really friendly. I think a human has never really petted the bunnies because they are curious. The bunnies are meant for food, but you can buy them as a pet. The farmer was also clipping a duck’s wing. I will tell you how they clip the wings. First they spread the duck’s wing out and then they get a pair of scissors. They clip of the ends of the duck’s feather. It does not hurt even though the duck does not like it.
Now you know all about the market in Arles, France.
