About the author: Bob Toovey


I am Bob Toovey and I have been blogging for quite some time. I currently write for three of my own sites and help friends and clients get a better grip with Internet marketing. I have a big interest in food, not just because it keeps me alive but as a way of relaxing after staring at screens all day.

My local market where I live, Bergerac France, is where I do most of my vegetable shopping. Great regional products that are fresh each market day - Wednesdays and Saturdays. Most of the time at better prices than the supermarkets and better quality.
