I love market days in France. It is a tradition that has been going some 700 years in this part of France and I love them as it is an excuse to meet up with friends and also buy some wonderful local fresh produce.
Yesterday we went to the market in Issigeac, the sun was shining and the market traders were out in force meaning that things are returning to normal. If it is grey a lot of traders do not show up so it means that the locals do not either so market days in the winter are rather grey whereas in the summer they are bright and sunny.
I thought that it maybe worthwhile posting details of market days in the area, we also include details in information folders at Maison de Poitiers & Maison No. 20 along ideas on what to see & do.
Places and days are as follows:
Sauveterre la Lémance
Monflanquin + marché des producteurs
Also a previous guest has asked me for details of the events taking place as part of the celebrations for solistice and fete of St Jean Baptiste, it is a little early yet as most of the tourist offices will start publishing details next month so I will let you all know as soon as I hear of any deatils. It is a great time to be in France as each village holds a fete de la musique and they compete to see who can attrct the most people.
