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
