Visit Dordogne Markets

When in the Dordogne you will want to visit one or two local markets. The markets are often the best place to buy fresh local produce, and most towns are at their best and most colourful on market days.

Note that most markets are significantly larger during the summer months and can become rather less impressive on a rainy day in February!

Below I have listed the days for most of the Dordogne markets. During the summer many towns also have nocturnal markets (marche nocturne) where you can eat, drink and listen to music in a communal atmosphere.

Evening Markets ( Marchés Nocturnes)

Evening MarketDuring the summer there are also a lot of evening markets. These really are a fun, economical and tasty way to enjoy an evening out.

Simply turn up and grab one of the tables which are set up in the market squares of the villages. Market traders provide everything from wine, starters, cooked meals and deserts and each supply the appropriate plastic cups or cutlery.

Choose your meal and take it back to the table and enjoy dining al frescoe often with music by a local band or DJ. These evening markets are very popular with tourists and locals alike.
