Romanesque Church Hunt Looking for churches and other France adventures.

To Market, To Market

There’s nothing like starting out a church hunt with a stop at a market for lunch supplies and shopping therapy. But it’s also possible to miss out on markets when combining unfamiliarity with an area and a propensity to sleep late (but of course you are on vacation!)

Here’s my list for our area of the Drome. I tried checking the tourist offices as well and have noted a couple of markets that are the don’t-miss ones.

Montelimar seems to have a market everyday, but I’m not sure on the details of that.

Monday
Tulette (cute little town with a cute church)

Tuesday
Grignan
St-Paul-Trois-Châteaux
Vaison-La-Romaine (8-2–provencale market – this is a big market)

Wednesday

Rémuzat
Buis-Les-Baronnies

Thursday
Nyons (This is a very famous large market — a don’t-miss!)
Montségur-sur-Lauzon <>

Friday
Dieulefit
Suze-la-Rousse
Taulignan

Saturday
Montélimar
Buis-les-Baronnies

Sunday
Nyons (this market is a ‘marche provencale’)
