Stroll down the aisles
of the Bazas market

Saturday is market day in Bazas in the South of Gironde! Pack your shopping basket and take a stroll down the market aisles in Place de la Cathédrale. From the arcades, you’re sure to hear Dominique’s laughter as he sits down to a Gascony breakfast.

On the menu: good pâté, charcuterie, cheese and a little local wine, all in moderation! It’s a weekly get-together for the market’s producers, who get together to catch up on old times and share a moment of pure simplicity. Dominique will tell you all about her local produce, “Lou Bazadès”, with love and passion! As you stroll around the market stalls, take a bite out of the local seasonal fruit or sample the Gascony charcuterie… After the market, the terraces under the arcades invite you to enjoy a coffee while reading the morning paper.
