The picturesque town of Anduze, about 10 kilometers southwest of Alès and the gateway to the Cevennes mountains, is home to one of our favorite food markets in the area. With a nice selection of food items – including two great bread vendors – the medium sized Thursday market offers local produce, regional specialties as well as dry goods.
The market is conveniently divided into three areas. The main food shopping area is at the covered market at La Fontaine Pagode. While the weekly market is short on meat and poultry purveyors, there is a butcher shop on rue Droite leading to the square. Up the hill to the west is a section of more food vendors, with dry good vendors along the length of Boulevard Jean Jaurès. During the summer high season artisanal crafts and other tourist type shopping opportunities can be found in front of the Mairie on the main drag, Plan de Brie.
