The Uzès Saturday market, Place aux Herbes, is one of the most popular in the South of France, blending great food shopping and dry goods and catering to both locals and tourists in a quaint medieval town. Its little brother, the Wednesday market, focusses on the food, mostly regional specialties.
While you can find just about everything you need to cook up one of your favorite local dishes, including fish, poultry and other meats, the market has a more touristy flare including – local honey, olive oil, chevre, artisanal beer, sausages, etc.
The setting is picture perfect, a romantic French square with dappled sunlight filtering through the shade of the large plane trees. The pretty back streets surrounding the square are also worth a stroll.
