We are off to the market .. Cahors Market ...

View Larger Map

Cahors is the capital of the Lot department in
South Western France. And about One and half hours
from Cadrieu , where I was staying.

There are markets all over France as
we know, and they all have a their own

But I never could of imagined this market
with the Cathedral looming over it ,
in all its glory.

The market was buzzing!! 

It is amazing that they have this market
twice a week, .. so many fantastic choices,
 where do you start??

I didn't get a chance to see more of Cahors,
but what I did see, I was very pleased
with, and I would definitely go back.

I do have more photos of Cahors and the
Cathedral to post ..


  1. What's on this huge frying pan?

  2. What a gorgeous cathedral, and the markets look fantastic full of lots of goodies.

  3. They are so lucky to have a market like this twice a week. We have a mini one twice weekly, then a large one once a month. If I travel further a field there are many around us though.

    This looks a beautiful spot, looking forward to seeing photos of the cathedral.

    Hope you are feeling better. Diane

  4. We have never been to that market, our Sunday market is excellent but I think we might head up to Cahors next Wednesday to check it out.

  5. Paella? Spanish influence here?
    Looks exhilarating, especially in weather like that!

  6. I just love markets like that and Cahors is a beautiful place.

  7. AGAIN! GORGEOUS!!! Wow. I am sorry you are not feeling well. You must have a full house, I assume. I hope you are being well looked after and that the gloom has passed. That daisy picture was a bright cheery pick me up for sure. Hoping you are better...Jenny

  8. I really miss French markets. Here in Italy the food markets don't compare. I lived in France for a year and I loved my weekly trips to the market to do my shopping.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Grado is a lovely place and I'm sure you'll have a lovely time visiting there. The food is amazing too - lots of seafood.

    Hope you're having a good half term holiday.

  9. You're so lucky. No wonder you would go back!

  10. Bonjour Anne,
    What a fabulous market! I've never been to Cahors but have read a book about an Australian lady who owns a little house near to there.
    Looks gorgeous.

  11. If I made it to that market, I would never leave. So jealous that you are close enough to zip across the Channel to visit France the way I drive over to New York to pick up my daughter from college.

  12. Once again I love your market mosaics!
