Market Days in Brittany

“A French Market is as much a social event as a shopping trip…..”

There’s something special about a French Market; somehow it epitomises much of what goes to create the unique character of France – the lack of haste (we’ll ignore the markets in Paris here because… Paris isn’t really France – it’s just London with style and class), the gentle friendliness of the people who live here and, above all, an abundance of great produce.

And Brittany has more than its fair share of great markets.

From the cosy neighbourliness of the local Saturday morning market at Josselin to the vast, and always packed, Sunday market at Carnac.

From the sheer range of fresh produce at the Wednesday morning market at Vannes (with the excellent Fish Market and plenty of great restaurants, nearby), to the totally practical markets, such as the Thursday market at Locmine (with its stalls selling clothes and kitchen utensils, as well as food, but… not one stall selling touristy souvenirs, to be found!)

And there are plenty of other markets too!

Each one seems to have its own character and its own special blend of produce and products for sale.

Just as no two towns or villages, in Brittany, are the same, neither are their markets.
