Head for the port

Marché de Locquirec, Bretagne
Every Wednesday, the port plays host to an especially pleasant activity. The weekly market is in full swing with its bright stalls of vegetables, fishmongers, cheese-sellers, butchers, Asian food, Crêpe-makers, local producers of cider, honey and caramel, market gardeners selling seasonal produce, as well as clothing, jewellery, shoes of the latest designs, and other unusual itmes such as linen, hand-weaved baskets, paintings, toys and decorative items.

And, throughout the morning, the area around the port is a lovely place for strolling and browsing. In the sidestreets and when waiting in line, people say hello and share the news, there’s always enough time to chat while you shop - you could spend the whole morning doing just that!
