Markets in Brittany - France

If you are living or on holiday in France, I advise you to visit local markets.

Local markets are indeed great places to buy fresh local produces direct from growers. Produces are fresh and the quality is usually very high. In the summer, as markets get crowded by the number of locals and tourists, it is advisable to explore them early!

Each town or village holds its own unique type of market on a specific day each week.

Markets around Dinan:

Combourg = Mondays
Dinan = Thursdays
Dol and Dinard= Saturdays
Cancale = Sundays

Rennes market is the second biggest market in France. It is held Saturdays. You will find local producers selling fruit and vegetables, meat straight from the butchers, home-made jams, cakes, flowers and plants!

Well worth a visit!
