Lourmarin market

Lourmarin has a market every Friday morning, which takes over the plane tree-lined avenue into the centre of the village, as well as the square above it. This is quite a large market for the size of the village, at least twice the size of Bonnieux market.

There are fewer food stands than at Bonnieux, and more clothes and objects for the home: cookware, crockery, baskets, soaps, carved olive wood, ginger, jewellery and honey, wine and olive oil, wraps and scarves, handbags and glad-rags, linen by the metre, herbes de Provence, sheep cheese and saffron, and of course poultry pottery.

Lourmarin is a market you would come to for a memento of Provence, somewhere you might be tempted by everything and nothing. When your eyes and shoulders tire, this is Lourmarin, so head to the centre for a coffee or a glass of rosé.

In the square you should take a look at the Cave a Lourmarin which showcases local wine (you can taste it too), oil, jam and other produce.
