Le Muy Market

Markets

Le Muy is a lovely little town just off the A8 and the Sunday morning market is something of a local treasure. Approximately two hundred stalls set up around the church in the centre of town and sprawl down the side streets, making it the largest and most popular market in this area.

The produce on sale is all regional and in season. The market varies drastically from winter to summer, the salads are all replaced by walnuts, almonds, mushrooms and winter vegetables in October. Come Christmas time it is full of clementines and the smell of roasting chestnuts. The rotisserie chickens and paellas cooked on the street are fabulous and boxed up for you to take away for lunch. Not to mention the pizzas and tarts from the boulangerie on the corner, all at very reasonable prices and deliciously still warm from the oven.

The main street is mostly consumed by vendors selling meats, cheeses, olives, oils, honies, breads and fruit and vegetables. The two side streets that peel off left and right halfway down the road are predominantly stalls selling jewellery and clothing as well as tableware.

All around the market most of the local shops are open including the butchers, bakers, fishmongers, and cafes. Although you won't find any of the local supermarkets open except for a couple of weeks during August.

While you're wandering around the market you'll hear music coming from the Brasserie du Marche just around the corner from the church. They have a live accoustic guitar set every Sunday while the market is on, accompanied by some really soulful French lyrics. It's lovely to hear even if you're just having coffee.

During the summer months parking is at a premium so it's best to get there early before the crowds and the midday heat arrive. However, there are a few hundred free spaces in and around the town.
