Fourcès Flower Market

Held each year since 1975 during the last weekend of April the “Flower Market” of Fources -“Marche aux fleurs” – is the horticulture lovers’ event of the southwest of France.
The little village of Fources is in itself a little historic gem – a “round” bastide – listed as one of the “Plus beaux villages de France” and a “Grand Sites de Midi-Pyrénées”.
This year’s 41st edition was officially dedicated to Brazil and its Olympic Games, though not many signs of this association were on display by Sunday afternoon 🙁
Here are some photos from the 2016 edition of the festival.
