Although there were mid-week markets in Place Carnet, they were not a patch on these Saturday markets. We have been flying out of Sydney on a Saturday and arriving in France on the Sunday. This seemed to set up a pattern of having weekly accommodation that started on a Sunday. Hence, the best markets were the day BEFORE we left each place. What a waste!
This was an exclusively produce market. My preference. The markets in Italy had a combination of produce and goods, with the latter being mass produced and often made in China. Defeats the purpose of going to a market, I reckon. Carcassonne had excellent boulangeries and Chez Felix - on Place Carnet - had nice coffee and red wine. The red wine in France is cheaper than the coffee.
