There is a small local market in Quillan on Wednesdays and Saturdays for purchasing local produce.
Esperanza market is a wonderful place to visit on a Sunday morning and is a really colourful and vibrant place on market day, offering local produce and hand made wares and artwork.
You can enjoy fresh Mediterranean oysters from the local seafood store while drinking a glass of wine at the bar. It’s a great place to ‘people watch’ as all the locals shop here and meet up with friends.
Mirepoix, just across in the Ariege region (approx. an hours drive) is a very large popular market in a very pretty town, selling general wares and craft produce. Well worth a drive.
Limoux has a general market on a Friday in the town square and is a nice place to have lunch after looking around.
