Mikki says:

Market day is Wednesday in Saint-Rémy de Provence and it is one of the most fabulous markets in Provence. The olive stalls are so popular that they have twelve people bedecked in orange aprons to attend to all the buyers.

St. Rémy has become a popular spot in Provence: so much to do and see. There are the beautiful Roman Ruins of Glanum, marked sites where Van Gogh painted, horses to ride, pools to swim in, bicycles for rent, and hiking trails everywhere. The area has now become popular with the film set. The locals bring their lavender into a mill cooperative where it is processed and sold for them.
