Weekly Market

Thursday morning from 8:00am - 12pm all year round near the church in the Place Rose Goudard.
This market is smaller than the famous Sunday market, but still a very pretty Provencal market and better than most markets in the surrounding smaller villages.

Sunday morning from 8:00am - 1:00pm all year round, located in the city center.
This lively market has the reputation for being the most substantial and beautiful market in Provence with a variety of fresh foods, clothes, antiques and more. There are many antique shops in town which will be open as well as antiques vendors in the market. Leave time for lunch and a stroll through the antiques shops. The Sunday market is a great place to go the morning after your Saturday arrival!
