Attractions - Markets
“A stay in France is not complete without a daily or weekly visit to one of the many colourful markets on offer. There are a wide range to choose from where you will find the best fresh produce in the South of France”
Maison Tournisol
The best Saturday market in the Languedoc. Taking over the whole town and offering a huge range of food, clothing, flowers and household items, Pezenas is the bees knees of markets. It does get very popular in the Summer so leave home early to really get the best out of your day. A great atmosphere set in the heart of the former capital of Languedoc.
When everything else in Languedoc is shut on a Sunday, visiting Narbonne market provides you with a burst of life. Spread around the canal-side, the market mainly sells clothing, leather goods, shoes, etc. But there is a wonderful indoor food market that should not be missed. The food here is excellent, especially the cheese and pate.

This large car-boot market in Marseillan takes place every Sunday. You could possibly pick up something interesting!
Valras Plage
The fish stalls here are in the main very good with a plentiful supply of fruit, vegies, cheese, clothes and furniture. Valras plage is also one of the best beaches in the region.

The drive to Roquebrun is picturesque in the extreme. Sitting on the River Orb, the town is well worth a visit. There is a market here on a Tuesday and Friday. Good provisions and great wines.
Wednesday markets - Languedoc
Clermont l'Herault
If you love food, then the Wednesday market in Clermont l'Herault is not to be missed. Here you will find the best olive oil, honey and goat's cheese in Languedoc.
Although the town of Saint-Chinian doesn't really live up to the lovely drive up to it and its fame as a wine producer, the market on Thursday is worth a trip. The market is mainly food, but also has clothes, fabric, books, plants, as well as lots of local producers. Make sure you leave with a car full of Saint-Chinian wine, some of the best to be found in Languedoc.
The flower market in the allèes Paul Riquet, Beziers on a Friday morning is a real must. The food market close to the Cathedral is also very good butnot as good as the indoor markets in Narbonne and Nimes.
Indoor food halls
For food and local produce you can not beat the indoor food halls of Nimes, Narbonne and Beziers. Situated in lovely old market halls, these markets really make you feel that you're in France when you're shopping with the locals.
