Visited Sarlat market when taking a quick break in the Dordogne area. It really is everything you would expect from a French market, loads of cheeses, continental meats, nougat, fois gras & fruit & vegetables. Lovely atmosphere and the buildings are beautiful to look at. We even found an English guy selling Lincolnshire sausages. Well worth a visit on a... More

And I mean huge...the whole old town area is transformed. Great food, libations, clothes, and more. Don't miss it.

Got up early and visited here at 9.30am on a Wednesday morning in mid-may. Was surprised at the amount of people there, although it did seem that a few coaches had dropped off a lot of tourists. We'd found parking quite easy nearby, although it was full when we left two hours later. It was a really nice market, set... More

we have visited a few markets during our trips to France and this one was a middle of the road experience for us. It's large, through the historical streets of the town and full of friendly stall holders; all great points. If you want to buy olives, walnuts, oils, wines, fois gras then this is the place to go. However... More

If you are in the area on a Saturday, the Sarlat markets are a must see. We spent a very contented couple of hours wandering through the markets tasting the local produce and buying a selection of breads, cheeses, sausages, olives and the most delicious strawberries for our picnic lunch. The markets are buzzing with locals and tourists and it... More

This market has it all, even in the off season it is buzzing with locals and the few tourists like us. We only spent a couple of hours as we were restricted for time, but even the kids could have stayed longer as we explored the foods, clothes and other items on offer. Great way to spend the day.

We found several items in the market that were very special. Keep your eyes open for the Luques olives. Simply delicious. Also try the Rashers from the English sausage vender on the right handed street by the Wyoming fake street sign.

At the market on Wednesdays look for La Saucisserie - artisan English saussage and bacon by Ian. Best ever and we lived in UK for years. Website www.dordogne-lot-saussage.com.

Quite simply this town and it's market are beautiful. You get a real sense of the most wonderful types of food; freshly baked bread and pastries, fresh and cured meats and some beautiful souvenirs. I would recommend this to families, couples or singletons looking for a taste of real French life. A wonderful memory.

Visited 11 April 2015 just about the best in the area for holiday visitors. Very long street and a return street by the church, some stalls stay open until 3pm. Local cafe restraunts are everywhere, our grandchildren loved the local crepes. I would agree there would be 600 vendors. Even a fabric vendor. We found parking in a local steet... More
