Pont sur Yonne Market

Pont sur Yonne is a charming town about 6 miles from Sens.  The gothic Notre Dame church there was built between 1130-1140 and consecrated in 1169.  You can still see the remnants of the “old bridge” built 1684-1700 and mostly destroyed by bombs during World War II.

Sunday is market day in Pont sur Yonne and our favorite saucisson maker is usually there.  He makes a dry salami type sausage with different blends of mushrooms, cheese, boar, venison, garlic, plain smoked and numerous others I can’t remember.  He has received many awards for his sausages and they are well deserved.  Sliced, these are perfect for cocktails.  This year we had to go to the Sunday market 3 times before he showed up.  He told us that since his product has become so well known, he has been busy hosting salons and attending receptions.  Good for him and good for us 🙂

While in the market we picked up some hot rotisserie chicken and potatoes roasted under the turning chickens to take home for our Sunday meal.  Dee-licious!

    Markets like that should be far more common! It sounds fabulous, especially the saucisson.
