7 Days in Dordogne: Market Day in Sarlat

Sarlat. You’re the winner. Of all the places I’ve been on my Dordogne tour 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!

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

    • Have a great time! Eat lots of foie gras. It’s everywhere! Thanks for your note. Let me know how you like Sarlat.

  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!!!
