There really is a market for every taste in our area. The Saturday market in our local town of Pampers is great for fruit, veg, artisan bread and cheese and loads more besides. Mirepoix market is a 20 minute drive away and takes place in the town's beautiful, medieval square. There also Montbrun Bocage on a Sunday which is a bit further away and has a distinctly laid back, 'hippy' feel to it.
