Visiting Markets In Provence

Only Provence is the leading villa rental company in Provence and we will assist you in finding what to do while renting a villa in Provence:   The daily morning markets in Provence represent what it’s all about–local farmers selling their freshest seasonal fruits and vegetables, alongside wooden tables heaped with regional cheeses, salamis, olives and cured meats. Pick up all you need for a lazy lunch on the terrace–perhaps a garlic roasted chicken, the makings for a tomato tart sprinkled with herbes de provence, a bowl of deep red cherries to finish the meal. But it’s not just the sumptuous food that can be found in Provence’s markets.  Pottery vendors and trendy clothes (linen of course) can be found alongside stands selling everything from handmade soaps, handbags, and jewelry.

 Best markets in Provence:

–Lourmarin  (Fridays) a small yet truly lovely market selling everything from cooked meats to Provencal fabrics and vintage home linens.

–Aix-En-Provence (Tues, Thurs, Sat.) the whole city turns into a market…

— L’Isle Sur-La-Sorgue (Sundays): known for its antiques-over 300 dealers show up each weekend.
