Carpentras is a rather run-of-the-mill agricultural town, but it's worth a detour for one very compelling reason – an absolutely wonderful Provençal market, which takes over the entire town every Friday morning, with more than 350 stalls laden with bread, honey, cheese, olives, fruit and a rainbow of berlingots, Carpentras’ striped, pillow-shaped hard-boiled sweets. In winter, it's also an important truffle-trading town.
