"This is a beefsteak, this is a tangerine, the big one is a rose de berne and the yellow one is a pineapple” the market gardener tells me proudly showing me her selection of tomatoes. "A bunch of parsley?" Another market gardener explains to me his secret recipe for cooking romaine lettuce. The customer on my right has tried it; she loves it but adds cumin. "An apple for the road?" Then it’s off to the cheese marker who sells me the taste of his mozzarella di buffala from Val-de-Travers. It will go well with the tomatoes in the basket "A glass of white before you leave?" The baker bakes his bread in an oven on site. Mmm, a morcel of happiness!"
