THE PÉRIGORD MARKETS

The Périgord Markets are the preferred destination for discerning customers who want to buy local food products.

All year round, our small medieval towns come alive with weekly markets.

During the winter months (November to March) the markets are quieter and the poultry producers, after months of caring for their ducks and geese, come to the markets to sell their fine products. All of which are all controlled by the food standards agencies.
