When and where are the local 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.
Below I have listed the days for some of the local 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)
During the summer (End of June until beginning of September) 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.
