Provence Honey Festival

market honeyThe village of Mouans-Sartoux (06 Alpes-Maritimes, Provence) holds its Honey Festival (Fete du Miel) on Sunday 30 April 2017. Mid-way between Cannes and Grasse in the heart and heat of Provence, there will be  workshops on honey production and bee-keeping, cooking with honey, a photographic exhibition on the theme of honey, bees and apiculture – and of course the opportunity to taste – see www.mouans-sartoux.com
Small honey producers are often a feature of French Markets – the picture above is from Cahors market (46 Lot, Midi-Pyrenees) where you can bring your own jars to refill. The range of honeys is also impressive, especially if you can do a comparative tasting between say a Lavender honey and a Rosemary honey.

    This just sounds amazing! As a honey lover and francophile combined I really appreciate this bit of information on the honey festival. I wish I could attend. I’ve had the experience of comparing lavender and rosemary honeys from Provence, though I’ve had to do it via an online purchase from http://www.splendidpalate.com while it was great fun, no comparison to an in person taste test in the region where they are produced! Thanks for managing such a great and interesting blog. regards, Ami.
