You will be very, very lucky to find any shops open at all on Easter Sunday. Most supermarkets in France do not open on a usual Sunday, let alone such an important religious holiday. Some small local shops may open in the morning, but after about 1230 everything is closed.

Public transport does operate but even on a normal Sunday is almost non existent. Almost all of the local bus routes around Carcassonne do not run on Sundays.

good advice from cubsur - also be aware of Easter Monday, or l'Omelette (omelet day) which is also a bank holiday and many stores may also be closed...this is why we love the south ;-) You may be going out to eat and using what you bring with you for 2 days...all back to normal on Tuesday!

Well, we had a hard time finding a table for 4 last Easter Sunday lunch because everything was booked. Not in Carcassonne, but I would expect Carcassonne to be busy as well. It is a popular place to visit and popular days for outings and restaurants would not want to miss this business.
