The French still love to shop in markets, many of which have been operating for centuries.

There are several markets that are held locally, our favourite is probably the one at Riberac. Generally markets only operate in the morning and will close down at 12.00.

The schedule for very local markets are as follows:

Chalais - Monday

Barbezieux - Tuesday, Friday and Saturday

Riberac - Friday
