The markets of Sarzeau!!!

And on a nice sunny day why not talk about our favorite visit, the markets or marchés! And the Rhuys peninsula of my lovely Morbihan has plenty. The one we like here is at Sarzeau! oh yeah in my beautiful Bretagne of course. Let me tell you a bit more on it

In Sarzeau, there are two weekly markets organized throughout the year.

On Thursday in the Place des Trinitaires. This market welcomes around a hundred traders in the low season and 170 summer traders from food to clothing, not to mention the tasters for new products. It is open to the public from: 8h. to 14h from April 1 to October 31 and from 8h30 to 13h30 from November 1 to March 31.

The one we like as convenient to us is the one on Saturdays,is a wonderful food market located on Place Richemont and spread over Place Marie Le Franc .The market is only dedicated to food traders (market gardeners, fishmongers, bakers, roasters, caterers, crepe makers, etc.) it is open to the public from: 8h to 14h.


You will also find a daily market on Place Richemont. The daily market takes place every day (except Thursday) from 8h to 13h. You will find there fishmonger, baker, market gardeners, greengrocers, crepe makers, etc.


In addition , there is the St Jacques market, that takes place from the last Monday in June to the first Monday in September. This market is a very nice stroll market, pleasant on the edge of the port and the sea. This market takes place all along the rue du port St Jacques and on the rue des Plaisanciers. You will find all kinds of food traders there (market gardeners, greengrocers, roasters, crepe makers, fishmongers, etc), but also clothing (clothing and shoes), trinkets and you name it. It is open to the public every Monday in summer from 8h to 13h30.

There is also, a monthly Fair taking place on the third Wednesday of each month on Place Richemont. It welcomes food traders but also products tasters and confectionery. It is open to the public from 8h to 13h30.
