October in Provence
The grapes have been picked and now the nets have been placed at the bottom of the olive trees ready for this years harvest.
The bright green traditional Alpilles olives vertes cassées have appeared in the markets and every store. Even olives are seasonal in Provence. Also in season, plums of all kinds, pears, chestnuts, still delicious tomatoes, figs, and almonds just off the tree.
In October, we celebrate the arrival of squash and the beginning of the soup season. The weekly markets are slowing down, but there’s still plenty to see and do in Provence. If it’s a sunny day, temperatures can easily get up to the high 20’s so if you’re visiting, bring attire for all eventualities.
Here is my list of the October Events in Provence. Please feel free to add any events in the comments section from your area of France, or even abroad!
