Things to do for Non-Anglers – Local French Markets

For our non-fishing guests at Bletiere I supply a folder of things to do & this year I have added a list of brocantes (markets) in the local area.

The brocantes take place on a Sunday and last most of the day and they range from a small village to the bigger towns where all the roads are shut and the locals set out stalls to sell anything they no longer need… it’s a bit like the car boot sales in the UK.

They are a great way to pass a couple of hours while the fisherman back at Bletiere set up their gear.  You never know, you might just find that valuable antique that’s been missed, but you’re sure to find some great local produce.

Tight lines, John
