Feature: Markets

If there’s one thing you really have to do in the Luberon, it’s visit a local market. Luckily there’s at least one every day of the week, so there’s no excuse not to shop. They generally run from 8am to 1pm from April to September; some villages also host summer evening markets. If you only have time to visit one, Apt’s bustling Saturday morning Grand Marché is hard to beat for atmosphere.
