Every Wednesday is market day in Malaucène. For us this usually means filling the big jute bag with a weeks worth of locally produced seasonal fruit and veg. This week, however, I went with visiting friends and a tourists eye.
The market is fantastic and good for a whole lot more than fruit and veg. You can get everything here, from everyday clothes, shoes and homewares to unique jewellery and art pieces..and of course there are the delicious piles of local cheeses, olives, sausages and other Provincial produce from across the region. My guests came away with beautiful handmade leather bracelets and artisanal children’s clothes.
Malaucène is a 4 minute drive from your base at Le Mas de Maupas.
