Every morning the Place du Marché comes alive with colour, chatter and delicious smells as the traders take their places. Huddled under medieval arches, the stalls brim with freshly made tarts, fruit, cheeses, pâtés, just-caught fish, oysters, artisan bread from the local bakery, and much, much more. It’s the perfect place to pick up a picnic to enjoy on the nearby beach, or ingredients for a lazy alfresco lunch or dinner.
