 Descartes Sunday

market in the Loire Valley

 

The weekly Sunday market in Descartes is very popular with Southern Touraine locals and visitors alike. Whether it is to stock up on fresh fruit or vegetables or just to enjoy the colourful atmosphere and browse the many stalls on offer. 

There are two options to purchase flowers and plants...

...plus you can buy the locally made, famous goats cheese, Sainte-Maure-de-Touraine from the cheese stall.  

 

 

 

 

After visiting the morning market you can sit in one of the friendly cafes on the square before taking a stroll through the town's lovely gardens.  

**The town holds an evening market on the riverside at the Quai Couratin on the first Friday in August every year which normally includes live music.
