For many visitors, the French markets are a 'must' to visit.

Civray, which is five minutes away by car, has markets on Tuesdays and Fridays, the Tuesday one being the larger.

Fish, meat, vegetables, cheese, baskets, clothing, flowers, table cloths, soaps, leather, handicrafts, paintings and cards by local artist Angela Berry and many other items make a colorful display.

Despite being a little way from the coast, there are two fresh fish stalls, both of which have a hugh variety of both fish and shellfish.

There are several meat stalls and we can vouch for the quality. Hugh fresh eggs, wonderful cheese and all the vegetables in season.
