The Truffle Market in Lalbenque

After posting about his day truffle hunting with a truffle hunting pig David Lebovitz has also added a tale of a trip to the black truffle market in Lalbenque, France in which he describes the unusual way truffles are purchased:

Unlike other markets in France, it’s up to the buyer to name the price, to make an offer. Since these people have just two months to make their money, they’re not all that willing to let them go for too cheap. But compared to prices anywhere else, these truffles are a major bargain.
