The colour and movement of the markets at L'Isle sur la Sorgue has to be seen to be believed. It is a foodie's paradise. The French artisans take the presentation and quality of produce very seriously. Their displays are yet another example of the culture of beauty and appreciation of art, that pervades the whole of French society. Take a look around and meet me at the bottom for details of when you can attend this fabulous market and I also have a great tip on where to stay.

The L'Ísle sur la Sorgue markets are on every Thursday and Sunday. The Sunday markets are huge, infact they are the biggest in the Luberon and include brocante and antiques. I shall bring you some shots of that soon. You will find anything your ever wanted here. It really is a fabulous experience to put on your bucket list.
