Check out the selection of local cheeses in the market... Second to none. Best activity- sit in the town square with some crusty bread smeared with warm Brie and sip some of he local red plonk.

Always fun to visit a market, high season is manic, but has to be done. Plenty of local produce and friendly atmosphere within a medieval scenery.

Loved the food section but the rest of the market is mainly cheap and nasty junk that you can find anywhere. A few good locally made goods though.

The Dordogne Valley was a surprise to me. Not as well publicized as the Loire Valley, we found it much more interesting and genuine. The beautiful river, the numerous castles, the quaint little villages, the history, the architecture, the local products, all blend very well, offering a very satisfactory "package" of mixed attractions, that keep you interested and entertained all...

A truly lovely historic town centre. Lots of buildings to look at, shops and restaurants. Street entertainers so something for everyone. Large central cathedral and plenty of art gallery's plus an indoor food market. Parking not very well sign posted some in the street and a few larger areas. Easy access to the town though.

This is one of the best regional markets. Every street in Sarlat seems to have stalls selling local produce and artisan made products. This is a "tat-free" market. Whether it is cheese, confit de canard, goose or olives, sausages or nuts there is everything here. A word of warning, park well away from the centre and walk in, it will... More

Today we visited this restaurant. We experienced really poor customer service. Some of our food was sitting on another customers table before the waitress realised. We had finished our meals before my son's food arrived. When we complained and said we wanted a reduction they called the police and we were made to pay full price. There was no apology... More

We'd heard so much about Sarlat, so made a point of making a 5 day visit in 2013. We were very pleased we did. The old town's beauty and medieval character must not be missed, especially in the early Autumn when the big market is on around Sept. 18. Lots of goodies and bargains!. The Candle Night Celebration takes place... More

If you get the opportunity to visit this fantastic market....do it! There are streets lined with local produce, food and drink to taste, and of course all in the beautiful town of sarlat, surrounded by medieval looking buildings and culture, I thoroughly enjoyed our trip to this market, its a must see!!

The whole town centre of Sarlat turns into a market on Saturday. On Wednesday only the pedestrian area is a market; then it's really only for food. The best place to park is the large car park at the top of the hill.
