In Dordogne Valley, having a good meal with local quality products is a crucial experience. We love making people discover good products, share a good meal our stories and the way we live here.
For that, there are the local food markets called "marchés de producteurs de pays" where you can meet farmers who are cultivating their own products to sell on the market. It is a real experience and genuine meetings. The time to share authentic stories and adventures.
The term "marché des producteurs de pays" is a label to create an opportunity for farmers and local producers to sell their products directly to the consumers. On these markets, you can directly meet local producers who are involved in the respect of a quality charter. The idea is to guarantee for the market consumers products that have a very good quality, coming from farms around. These products are specialties of the area, we advocate a full transparency about the production. You have a direct contact with the producer.
There is no intermediary: all the products are bought from the origin. For the producers, it is a real award to satisfy the final consumer, both tourists, and locals.
