Sarlat and its market are a must see if you are in this part of France. The city itself is a stunning representation of a medical City with hundreds of narrow street and alleyways with endless cafes and restaurants. No traffic just completely closed off for pedestrians. The cathedral and surrounding buildings are centuries old, incredibly atmospheric place to wander... More

We visited the Saturday market which is huge in comparison with the size of the town. Every nook and cranny is filled. A lot of repeat stalls. Food, clothing and tourist type stalls. Food stalls begin packing up around 1pm or so. We had our 4 children with us so we were constantly making sure no one got lost in... More

We went on a Wednesday morning, but I think it's also there on Saturday. The market is full of foie gras and canard stores, also lots of vegetable, charcuterie and cheese sellers. There is also a daily covered market just off the Place de la Liberte, which is worth a visit. The truffle mustard is fantastic.

Loved the Buzz around Sarlat Market. Got there about 10.30 and strolled around this fabulous little town. The stalls lead you on an interesting tour of side streets and crevices where sellers and artists compete for every square inch of cobblestone. No hassling and no pressure to purchase and a good French haggle to be had. Highly Recommend a visit.

This market is remarkably large, considering it's in a small town in the Dordogne. The Saturday market seemed as big as one you'd find in a large city. We visited on both the Wednesday (food) and the Saturday (market + food). Great variety of items for sale and the food is great. Worth a trip.

I was blown away at the sheer size of this market. It is huge. The entire town almost becomes a market. Lots of fun. Tip: we had oddly poor cell phone reception in the medieval town so if you split up, agree on a good landmark to meet up again. It is a must do.

In order to close the curiousity with foie-gras you can try it everytime and everywhere or visit this market. It's like knowing where the heart of foie gras (or liver :)) is placed.

The market is a lively mix of fresh food and flowers and a variety of various goods such as clothes and toys. Cheeses and bread are very tempting. We went to the Saturday market. It must run for 10 blocks. Take a break and stop at the Tourist Office, about half way through the market and at the end of... More

Best to go as early as you can to avoid the heat , park easy and find a nice spot for a little breakfast. We went on Wednesday am. So all the stalls were regional food specialities. Great to just wander tasting everything as you go. Buzzy atmosphere but not too busy . Such a lovely town to see. Very... More

We've visited Sarlat market on a number of occasions over the years and have found that it pays to get there early - early in the season if you are in the area, and early in the morning to avoid the crowds. The food market (fruit and veg and local produce) is in the centre of the old town area... More
