What day is the Najac market?

The Najac market takes place on Sunday morning on the Place du Faubourg, in the heart of the castral village.

Admire, in the extension of the square, the long street that stretches to the fortress. This perspective seems straight out of a fairy tale!

An emblematic product: Fouace

From the Latin “Focus”: hearth, the fouace is the Provençal heritage of the savory form of fougasse, in a sweet version. It's the cake the brioche type that takes the Aveyronnais back to their childhood, the palm tree cake and Catholic religious festivals. Behind its simplicity, this Proust madeleine hides beautiful stories of sharing and transmission. If time passes and recipes change, one thing remains the same: its subtle scent of orange blossom. 

Ideal for breakfast or snack, don't forget to bring some back to your basket!
