A large local market with wonderful local meats, fish, produce, nuts, cheeses, as well as lots of goods ranging from high quality, unique to cheap and common. Fun to meander and observe. Beautiful setting. Bring a rolling cart. Lots of appealing stuff.

We went to the Wednesday market this morning.No problems parking in one of the free car parks as it's out of season (get a map from the tourist bureau to find out where they are). Vegetables, sausages, cheeses... regional specialities such as nuts and foie gras... plenty to walk around and look at, produce looked good (but not cheap). If... More

Stayed overnight in Sarlat to break the drive down to Languedoc from Paris. Have been to many markets all over, this was better than many and obviously because of the area had more duck and fois gras. An enjoyable visit

We had a lovely time in Sarlat, my favourite market in the region. Parking was somewhat difficult but we did get a space after circling the area.

The one cold and rainy day during our trip was one of the most memorable. As the drizzle chilled us, we stopped at a boulangerie and bought 2 steaming baguettes, watching as they were pulled from the oven. Nothing tasted better. The market is extensive and has lots to see and buy. Be sure to try the different sausages, but... More

I loved this market full of regional produces, very lively and animated. I bought a lot of cans of foie gras to bring back home. Some vendors will let you sample. I also bought a walnut cake and a pain d'epices to bring back to the hotel for afternoon snacks. It's a delightful market not to miss if you are... More

Amazing variety of food vendors in the morning and clothing stalls in the afternoon on market day…it takes over old Sarlat and offers wonderful food options and delightful street entertainment all day and into the evening. Get there early to find a good parking spot as many of the streets are closed to auto traffic during market days.

We visited in Autumn, think it would be mobbed in summer, but what a location for a market! It is surrounded by mediaeval buildings on all sides, you just don't know where to go first. The markets were interesting but you had to seek out the local produce in amongst the usual offerings of cheap clothes, shoes and bags, but... More

Enjoyed visiting the Sarlat market a couple of Saturdays ago. The variety of produce, pastries, meats, cheese, etc. was truly amazing! We were out at about 8:45 and not all the stands were open yet. We thought the market shut down at lunch time but it went on late into the afternoon. All of the produce looked (and tasted) good!... More

We loved the Sarlat market, both inside and out. We bought fresh olives, some cheese and bread to eat for lunch with the delicious walnut liqueur we purchased earlier! Yum! Inside the market, through the gigantic doors, we bought some souvenir oils in small bottles, truffle oil and walnut oil, at what seemed to be a good price. It was... More
