7 Days in Dordogne: Market Day in Sarlat

Sarlat. You’re the winner. Of all the places I’ve been in Dordogne these past five days,  I like you the best. 

Ok. I’m a sucker for market days. That’s how I fell in love with –and moved to– Uzes.

Take a look at Sarlat!

Market day in Sarlat

Maybe what I fell in love with in Sarlat was the cool hand-made bag I bought from this guy…



Or the foie gras…


Or the walnuts (“noix” not “noisette”)

Perhaps it was the buildings and the alleyways

…and the amazing church where I could feel the Spirit…


I wish you could have been there to taste the galette and the cider.

The macaroons…

I’m sure you’d feel the same. 

It was so much fun we almost ended up with feathers braided in our hair!

Tomorrow’s adventure? A surprise!

Stay tuned…

  1. Debby, Najac was our least favorite place. It felt a little tired, dusty. People weren’t all friendly. Almost had to beg a bartender to make us a drink and he had no business.It would be a “skip” for us.

  2. Love, love this thread of posts, Deb, and for very personal reasons as we prepare for our November adventure in Dordogne. It should be easy enough to convince you to join us for a meal in this lovely part of France, n’est-ce pas?

  3. Yes, it is a wonderful little village and the market is wonderful. You should have included the plaza with the two geese. We have a painting of them in our US home and it brings back fond memories. The weather looks great and you have added a new handbag to you collection. Great story and great pictures to go along with all the wonderful food!!!
