The markets of Quiberon, part I

Going down on the peninsula of Quiberon and all the way to the tip at the town of Quiberon is a delight for us, so many times there, our favorite spot in the area, and we love it. This is of course a peninsula with beaches on both sides and marinas. However, the best for ambiance, sights and be seen and great produce are the markets. This is an update of an older post and subsequent there is another market post. Hope you enjoy it as I.


We come often and early for the market and at any time afterward ! The market day in Quiberon is huge in Summers with visitors abound, then it reduces to just a trickle of locals in the coming winter months. Very seasonal but nice in high season Summer months. Anyway low or high season we come here for the ambiance and have a pint leisurely with locals and the merchants we know. It’s a escape from the house too! Below is my Dad  (black jacket) wandering about lol!


Every Saturday morning from 8h to 13h on a large area that starts in the Place du Varquez parking and spills over the Esplanade Hoche just facing the Grande Plage or big beach! The big one and nicest is at the Varquez/Hoche. Offering local products by local producers or sedentary traders from the Morbihan. You will find gastronomic and artisanal products there of very good quality and prices.


There is a Bio market on Mondays from 16h3O to 20h30 at Place Duchesse Anne until end of summer . The Wednesdays from 8h to 13h there is food market at Place de Port Haliguen.

There you go folks, an introduction to the markets of Quiberon, and a great walk from the grande plage or big beach , Hope you plan to be there when in season and take advantage of a great event; there is always activities around it and plenty of restos and bars too!

And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all!!!
