Why: In order to taste regional products and have a chat with the locals
Visit France’s colourful and buzzing traditional markets, true human “hives” of activity and interaction. Sounds, smells and colours meld to capture your attention and bring you straight into the action. These markets offer a cultural experience like none other, with an incomparable, authentic ambience that is ever-so-French. The local vendors, calling out traditional market cries that are sometimes rhymed, beckon you to come taste their delicious and fresh products in hopes that you’ll buy some– ones that are mostly derived from France’s unique and high-quality terroirs. Striving to outwin their nearby competitors, they send their booming voices into the air, trying to get your attention and creating an atmosphere of cheer and vibrancy. These markets are numerous and varied, each with their own specific characters depending on the region– from Provence to Alsace and Paris. You will certainly get a chance to visit one or more of these when you embark on one of our private food or wine tours of France. Make sure to bring along your camera and an empty stomach: they will leave you an inimitable souvenir you may cherish for many a year to come.
