The yearly, so called cow market, has been last wednesday. The centre of town is then one big market. Lot's of food.. Here some shots to have an impression of the market stands.
The first stand is one with sausages. It's the time of the year for the sausage we eat traditionally in the winter seizon, called rookworst or smoked sausage. This stand owner has traditional made sausages.
Lot's of fish too, but that is not really my pick..
Cheese is traditionally round, but that doesn't needs to be like that.
Even more sausages, homemade...
And finaly, strawberries, actually too red for my iPhone camera..
It's the time of the year that we have fresh apples and pears again. This year has been a good year for these fruits, they are very juicy and tasty. The summer we had was perfect for them and there are many! On the country side you see the trees full with big tempting apples. But eating apples is a virtue I guess.
Note that the farm building is dating from late middle ages. You can see this from the type of stones.
The weather was so sunny this last sunday, I had to go out and make a trip with my bike. In the fields on a road where I have never been before I saw a single tree in a field. It made a great shot with the sky. The sun just started going down..
This guy had a real interesting business. At the topfloor of a church tower (in Tabor), he set up a little tourist shop, selling really funny things. Stuff I would not think of to sell. For example old key chains, old photo's, cards, stamps, brochures etc. This for like 0,20 ct each.
