Oh La La! San Quentin la Poterie, France

Imagine a village in southern France where the primary industries are farming and handmade pottery. Can you think of a place that is more “down to earth?” (Pun intended!)

San Quentin la Poterie

Friday is market day in San Quentin la Poterie. It’s only a few miles down the road from Uzès, becoming one of my favorite places to shop. There’s the farmers’ market with all the local foods and vendors …

But even better than the farmers’ market, there are dozens of pottery shops through the winding village streets. Many stores have the artist’s workshop attached. Most artists are there, busy working on their new creations.

Oh La La, Handmade Pottery

When they say San Quentin is world-famous for pottery, they mean pottery of the finest kind. Not to discount our fabulous potters from western North Carolina, but I have never seen such magnificent pottery. Each shop I visited was better than the last one.
