The market at Loches
is held every Wednesday and Saturday morning and is a good way to start off
a visit to this
interesting citadel town.
The stalls are
set up in a meandering fashion, winding their way through its medieval
streets - an excellent backdrop for an interesting morning's stroll -
like most markets here it is all over by 12.00am, just in time for lunch.
On market day the the town
turns into a bustling community where shoe sellers join cheese sellers who
compete with the smell of fish and flowers which are outshone by flamboyant
pottery - it's all here! Plus you have the added bonus of some fine
permanent shopping and ample free parking.
Smelling tasting and
buying at Loches Market
We normally find that you
can find a parking space by the train station (gare) though you may have to
wait a few minutes on busy days but there are plenty of alternatives.
Please note on market days the car park at Place de
Verdun can be used for stall holders.
