Savor the authenticity of the terroir, taste local specialties and treat yourself to fresh produce. On Thursday morning, go to Place Notre-Dame, where one of the most beautiful markets in Aveyron takes place.

Thursday is market day!

The unmissable event for epicureans and gourmets who love local products ! So, hurry up to Place Notre-Dame… follow the crowd as it enters the colorful alleys, it's a explosion of flavors and colors !

We see everything and we want to taste everything! We salivate in front of sun-kissed fruits, Quercy melons, vegetables just out of the ground, local specialties like the jokers. We love sweet delicacies: fouace, honey, cheeses, charcuterie, eggs from the farm! There is something for every taste !

Want to contemplate this view of the market?

In summer, climb the 153 steps of the bell tower of the Notre-Dame collegiate church to admire one of the most beautiful views of the bastide town of Villefranche de Rouergue.

An event not to be missed

The local, behind their stalls, have a smile and exchange a good word with the locals! The elders who speak Occitan give each other news: from the Aristide Briand alleys, to the Place Notre-Dame, in the shadow of the Collegiate Church, passing by the Place du Saint Jean, it is a whole country that finds itself , as for exchange only for shopping!

We are not chauvinists, but the Villefranche market is one of most beautiful markets from the region…from France itself! So, bring a piece of Aveyron home and bon appetit, of course!

To share a pleasant moment, in summer, the city hosts farmers' markets: choose the contents of your plate, sit down at our table and let's dance the night away!
