Markets

Olive standThe markets in the south of France have their own flair. So also in the department Gers. The big markets are like a department store: a wide range of food, essentials and superfluous items for daily use are offered for sale.

The small markets usually only offer food, but they are fresh from the region, often from private producers in their own garden. There you can discover real specialties. In summer, for example, after a few damp days, wild mushrooms (girolles) that were collected early in the morning.

The mood is calm and leisurely. There is always time for a chat when shopping.

Not to forget the flea markets , where you can find everything from crooked nails to antiques.
