  1. Both Vaison La Romaine on Tuesday and Carpentras on Friday in the Vaucluse are morning markets. The former is a wonderful market year round but it is just huge during the summer. I have posted with pictures on our blog about this market.

      Hi Michel

      Thanks for this. I’ll update French Market Days on Monday (am busy trying to make the chicken area escape proof at the moment!)

      All the best

    Great website Keith!

    I’ve added the link to my blog.

    I go to the markets in Apt and Forcalquier quite a bit. Next time, I’ll take some photos and see if I can come up with anything for you :-)

    Hi Keith!

    Lovely idea!

    Market day in Coustellet is Sunday. It isn’t year-round but it’s especially busy during the summer.

    Hi Keith,
    I’m so glad you’ve done this because I am in love with the markets. I got a fabulous book for my bday on French markets you might like too. It’s published in the US but you can find it on amazon. Let me know if you think it would be useful…
    AND, I need to get Languedoc-Roussillon on your list! There’s a great Saturday market in Sommieres and a vide grenier there on the 12th. I’ll get to work on it!
    All the best,
