You will find village markets every day of the week. They range from a handful of stalls to large town markets. The biggest one takes place on Saturday mornings in Apt, with up to 300 stalls.
Markets are as popular with locals as they are with tourists, and most of them take place all year round, adding colour and vitality even to the most wintry of villages. They tend to be larger in the summer.
The Luberon Concierge can take you on a tour with a local English speaker who will unveil the secrets of these fascinating markets.
Browsing around a local market before having lunch in a favourite restaurant is a great way to spend a morning. A marché paysan is a farmer's market where they sell what they have been growing themselves. An evening market like the one in Velleron will have fruit and vegetables that were picked in the morning.
