Gastronomic festivities

On visiting Sarlat, it soon becomes clear that it is a town which prides itself on its good food.

Firstly, there is the market (Wednesdays and Saturdays) which brings the best of the local produce to the town. During the rest of the week there is an excellent covered market (converted by the famous architect, Jean Nouvel).

Then there are the shops specializing in local produce, adorning their shelves with foies gras and other invitations into the world of gastronomy.

We quickly realize the deep desire the people of Sarlat have to celebrate the exceptional produce which comes from their land. These moments of conviviality are appreciated throughout the year. They begin in the winter, when the Perigourdian black truffle and foie gras production is in season, but continues in the spring through to autumn as nature is generous throughout the year.

All good food lovers should note these dates in their diary and above all come here to enjoy moments of pure happiness.
