Markets in the town of Confolens located north east of Charente are every Wednesday and Saturday morning.
The Montmorillon Market in the centre of Montmorillion is filled every Wednesday morning with stalls, produce and people. At the market you can buy a bed or a carpet through to meats and shoes. There is a huge amount of produce on offer and everything is well presented. It makes a happy half hour wandering amongst the hustle and bustle of market stalls.
The Saturday, Tuesday and Thursday market in Chauvigny offers even more incentive to visit the town. The market located between the river and the Church of Notre-Dame offers a selection of food to leave your mouth watering. Some of the fine produce available includes prawns, crayfish, oysters, pates and a range of cheers.
