Tuesday evenings! Liaucous
This small weekly market brings together around 15 local artisans and producers from 6pm to 9pm. It’s a great place to shop for fresh vegetables, fruit, Côtes de Millau or local beer, all produced in the valley. You’ll also be able to sample local specialties such as aligot and farçous, as well as Creole and exotic dishes. Take the opportunity to tour the village and enter the Romanesque church of St-Sauveur, open only on market evenings.
Wednesday evenings: your choice of Montredon or Le Rozier
At Le Rozier, at the entrance to the Gorges du Tarn, the market is held in the village square. You can get out of the canoe to go to the market.
The same evening, in Montredon, there’s a farmers’ market and a nocturnal picnic on the grass! Welcome to Larzac, where the scent of alterglobalism wafts through the air! The oldest and best-known night market in the area is also one of the liveliest and most popular. At the height of summer, it’s very crowded, so don’t stay out too late if you want to eat. From 6 p.m. until… Don’t forget the return journey, from Millau it’s a good 20 minutes.
Come with your picnic basket or just your plates and cutlery and compose your menu on the spot: fruit, cheeses, grilled meats, beers, bread, wood-fired pizzas, all products from organic or sustainable agriculture. Meat is grilled on site on a community barbecue. Then it’s picnic time on the grass or at one of the tables set out in the meadow, with eyes turned towards the stars, which shine brightly away from the city lights. The entertainment may be during or after, but it’s always a highlight of the evening!
Friday, Mercadou in Potensac!
As a preview to Mercadou, Léon invites you to a free walking tour! On Larzac, first we whet your appetite, then we feed you! And since we’re a stickler for quality – local produce, respect for seasonality, organic or sustainable farming – we’ll be serving aligot, grilled duck, farçous, Larzac beer… Here, as in Montredon, conviviality and the spirit of sharing are the order of the day: come with your picnic basket, empty or full, and enjoy the atmosphere.
Saturday! Note the traditional market in St-Affrique, for all those who missed the Millau market….
Sunday morning, breakfast in Aguessac
And Sunday morning! Aguessac! Catch-up for those who missed all the other night markets. Here’s a market with the “Marché des Producteurs de Pays” label! A further guarantee that you’ll find fresh produce from the Aveyron region on the stalls in Aguessac: everything comes from the valley: wine, fruit, vegetables, honey…
