Cucuron market

Small in size, Cucuron market is big on charm and quality. Notable for great local produce - fruit and vegetables, honey, a good cheese stall, and various speciality vendors - it all takes place around the dramatic water feature in the centre of Cucuron. The bassin is spring-fed and about as big as an Olympic swimming pool, with huge 200-year-old plane trees arching over and providing shade for all. There are places to sit and drink or eat around the bassin and watch the comings and goings of market day, which is Tuesday morning.
