It is not that uncommon in England these days to find that a French market has driven over and is selling their goods in a make shift market.
This is quite popular with the Brits as they get to see and buy a wider range of items than they normally see, and it is good business for the French. You can even try out your rusty schoolboy French when you buy something!
This guy was selling sausages, but there were other stalls selling pancake saucepans, baskets, nougat, French signs (polite ones!), wines and other foodstuffs.
What to buy: Well I bought a very flat pancake saucepan and some Sausages...
What to pay: Things aren't especially cheap, but just different from the usual Brit market stuff
The guy in the visiting French market had some of the most unusual sausages I have ever seen.
If you enlarge the photo, you can see there are: Mushroom, Blueberry, Olive, Herb, Smoked, Calvados, Hazlenut, Wine, Natural, and several other sausage types. They don't com in cheap - they are £2 per sausage (or almost $4 US), but they are quite large and very full of meat.
This seller also had Spanish chorizo and several other types not in this photo. A stall for a sausage connosieur!
What to buy: Well the Stall Seller recommended Calvados and Wild Boar
What to pay: £2 per sausage!
In the High Street you have things like Superdrug, Sainsburys, estate agents and the normal old stuff you get in every High Street. You also have a little courtyard, which is quite pretty, off of the High Street, this is called Listons Court: You've got Noa Noa in there, a shop that sells soft furnishings, a card shop and a kind of bric a brac shop amongst others. Up on the Henly road you have a big bookshop, an Iron mongers, Waitroses and other general stuff there too. To be honest, you would be better off getting on to the Bus and going in to Reading for a wider variety of shops.
What to buy:
Clothes, make-up, soft furnishings, groceries etc.
What to pay:
This is Marlow, and it's Buckinghamshire, expect to pay a lot!
