Gordes Market – Tuesdays:
A little medieval hilltop village – Gordes has incredible views and a lovely offering from foods to fabrics.
Gigantic bricks of nougat.
Beautiful floors at the L’Occitane store.
St Remy Market – Wednesdays:
By far the largest market, it almost takes over the town, with lovely boutique stores, winding lanes and loads of incredible, fresh produce.
Menerbes Market – Thursdays:
A teeny-tiny market, but the medieval hilltop village of Menerbes, in itself is a must destination for a stroll around and a long lunch in the sun! Menerbes is where Peter Mayle wrote “A Year In Provence” (More on our accommodation here to come.)
Could have bought one in every colour. Gorgeous linen dresses.
Bakery 1 above and bakery 2 below. Very hard not to carb . . . (hard!)
Lourmarin Market – Fridays:
To me this was by far my favourite market. A stylish little town lined with cute little boutiques, lunch & coffee spots and I invested in more linen from tableware to bodywear.
I got a couple of linen shirts and serviettes . . .
By now the boys were marketed out and we had a long table lunch to go to on the Saturday – (A real treat – more on that to come!) But the Provence market circuit is a must – you’ll see a few of the same traders at various markets (not a bad thing if you want to think about the buy) and then some very different things too. We didn’t even get to the antique side of things. Very frustrating having husband and toddlers – girls trip anyone? 🙂
Here’s a list of all the market happenings in the Luberon Valley! xx
