Market Days in France
Le marché is a universal attraction of France. Here we present a reference of market days throughout France, département by département. Unless specified otherwise, markets start in the morning. Many finish at lunchtime (or the best produce has often gone by then, so it's advisable to go early if you can). Small communities tend to offer only a handful of stalls.
Every effort has been made to ensure accuracy, but there is no single authority controlling or monitoring markets, so the list is compiled from a large number of sources and is by no means exhaustive. It is continuously being revised and updated: if you find other markets, or information that differs from above, we would be pleased to hear from you. We may add a listing of regular French markets in Britain; if you know of one in your area, or you have any amendments to make to the list of market days by department in France, please let us know.
Some markets are open morning only.
Those market with * are tourist season only (usually Jul/Aug).
