The local producers’ market

Consisting entirely of farmers and artisan producers, these markets favour direct contact between producer and consumer. They can be recognised by their logo and the “Marché des Producteurs de Pays” trademark. They have two main advantages:

  • direct sales from producer to consumer
  • authentic products prepared using the traditional skills of each “land” ( "pays").

At these Markets, you will find many food products as well as traditional artisan products specific to each “land”.

At these markets, you can shop for the best local products and enjoy them on the premises. In 2016, 3 local producers’ markets will take place in July:

  • In Aureilhan, on 20 July
  • In Pontenx les Forges, on 26 July
  • In Mézos, on 5 July
