When you want to try all produce of Dordogne, this is the place to go. Local bread, olives, cheeses, fruit, veg. You can meet locals and listed to a barrel organ performance.

Market not only on main squares but also over many streets/smaller squares, so your turn a corner or walk along different small streets and more stalls pop up... A pleasure to browse, smell, feel but very difficult to choose what to buy. Everything looks amazingly...More
