France boasts some of the best markets in Europe and many of these can be found in the South West. Arguably the finest of all is in the Dordogne at Sarlat.
There are two markets throughout the week but the best is the Saturday event. This spreads right through the Old Town and along the main street, the rue de la République. Stalls offer culinary delights such as foie gras, truffles, sausages, high quality fruit and vegetables, bread, wine and even spices.
There is much more than the splendid food and drink on sale however and if you are looking for leather goods, clothes, household goods or just want to listen to local musicians Paris-Londres who provide such a romantic backdrop to the proceedings then Sarlat on Saturday morning is for you!
