The food markets are an important part of life in the Périgord Noir and are a must for food lovers. You will find a lively and cheerful atmosphere, colourful stalls, tasteful smells and chatty vendors. Among the foods that are on sale are local favourites, such as truffles, nuts, foie gras, cèpe mushrooms, magret de canard (duck breast) and, of course, a wide range of locally grown vegetables. Most of the markets are held one morning (or day) a week all year around. Below you will find three of our favourites.
