High season, off season, summer, winter, autumn or, spring, discover the hidden gems of fresh produce, Saturday or Wednesday, mornings. The character of the market changes on Saturday afternoon and moves away from a focus on food to one of fashion accessories, pottery and local crafts too. There is something for everyone, young and old. Of course the themed markets... More

I have always wanted to visit Sarlat for her foie gras, truffles and walnuts. The Saturday market did not disappoint. I managed to purchase all these treasures. Had my 1st walnut caramel tart and walnut chocolate cake, yummy! However, I was hoping to find other items eg. a truffle slicer. As I could only afford 2h there, I spent it... More

Spending a week in dordogne, the recommendation from everyone is the wed or sat market, we went there wed. , certainly worth seeing this old town center filled with market stands, we did see another 5 markets in the days before and this was the least authentic. Yes a number of sellers are the same as at the other markets... More

Wow, what a spectacle, this huge Saturday market virtually takes over this entire lovely historic old town from about 9am-1pm. Huge variety of things to just look at and photograph - fruits, black truffles, garlic, assorted dried meats, wines, fruit, foie gras, clothes, books, shoes etc etc. Buy some jambon, local cheese, fruit and a bottle of wine plus bread...

Sarlat Saturday market draws large crowds of both locals and visitors. It offers an amazing array of local foods with duck confit, foie gras, cheeses, breads and wines most prominent in the narrow streets of the old town. It's a great place to shop for high quality picnic items. The clothing and hardware stalls up on the main street are... More

My friend and I were on a weeks tour of the region staying in Souillac so we arrived by coach. A blessing as I understand the parking is quite difficult, but I would think well worth it. It was market day and what a market. It meandered for what seemed miles and such a variety of foods, with little tasters... More

We were told that we had to visit, Sarlat on market day so we dutifully made our way on the Wednesday (as Saturdays were transit days). And I have to say I am glad we did the Wednesday as it is only half a day. The town was very busy and finding parking was pretty difficult, but thats normal for... More

The Sarlat market was as busy and large a market as you will find with a diversity of foods and the usual 'junk' you find in markets. Because it is so popular and because of the diversity it is packed with people and this adds to the atmosphere but also detracts as well and prevents a good appreciation of Sarlat... More

Wondering through numerous vendors along quaint narrow roads. Such smells, fresh produce and wide variety of everything! Go if given a chance and sample the variety of foods, produce and pastries!

If you can be in Sarlat on Saturday, you need to go to the market. It encompasses almost all of the Old Town, and there is plenty of foie gras, sausages, vegetables, and even clothing and antiques.
