Fresh Fruits and Veggies Available in French Markets in March/April

Jump to last reply

I will be traveling to Gers, Ariege and Languedoc at the end of March through the beginning of April of this year. I have an allergy to gluten (a protein found in wheat, barley and rye) so I was planning on packing energy bars, picking up a few staples (bread sans gluten and nuts) in Toulouse at the beginning of my trip and then mostly stopping at local markets and supermarches to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables in addition to cheese. I was wondering what I can expect to find in the markets during that time of year. For example, in California, our winters are very mild so our growing season is all year. We can find locally grown artichokes, asparagus, avocados, broccoli, lemons, grapefruit, oranges and tangerines in local farmer's markets in March.

Would this be a feasible plan in late winter/early spring?
