This market kicks off in the Place de la Liberte at around 8:30 with the smell of fresh bread, cheese and other fresh edible delicacies, then as the day wears on the less tasty stalls open, selling clothes, trinkets and acres of flowers.  The flavour of tasty treats depends on the season, but this region, the Périgord, specialises in truffles and mushrooms, foie gras and other duck or goose based products and desert wine.

It's difficult to get a parking spot on the day of the market – it's still used by locals – so it's a good idea to come in to town the night before if you're a serious market lover.
