Mirepoix Market – Ariège (09) – Monday Mornings

For Ariege, I think the Monday market at Mirepoix (and not just because of the way it sounds) is one of the best known in the department. Certainly anyone who is renting a house/gite in the area makes mention of it.

http://www.laroumaude.com/en/en_area.htm says: “This magnificent market is held every Monday morning throughout the year. As well as fresh home grown produce you can buy antiques, clothing, wine, trinkets, in fact just about anything. Musicians play around the cafés which surround the square. Not to be missed.”
