What Was at the Market in Autumn?

These photos were taken at Loches and Preuilly markets in October (before the current lockdown began).

Under the Salsify label is Lovage... an excellent plant.... best described as "smokey celery"

Oh! It never occurred to me it was lovage. I thought it was rather second rate looking celery, or the tops off celeriac. What's the French for lovage?

Accordion to Google....livèche
Deeple plays another tune.... lovage

Susan said...

DeepL has clearly never heard of it and didn't translate it. Wikipedia gives Livèche as does Eflore (as an alternative vernacular name -- it lists Ache de montagne as the approved French name -- I suspect that's a difference between the wild plant and the cultivated one, and regional possibly too.)
