French Markets in Brittany – 2017
France is renowned for its popular community based activities and fetes which are organised all year round and most particularly during the summer months when weekly programmes of events attract both tourists and residents alike. Brittany is typical of all the other regions in France and being a rural region with a famous coastline, attracts many very popular annual events.
There are regular weekly markets in most of the local large towns – some of the best markets are listed below. You will also find many local villages and small towns also hold a weekly morning market. During the summer months you will also find most towns and villages will hold regular ‘bric a brac’ markets often at weekends which attract both locals and tourists searching for bargains. These sales are known as ‘vide greniers’ and attract lots of interest.
