Eymet Tuesday Night Market

The market in Eymet has been in existence since 1270.  Held every Thursday morning from 0900 selling fresh produce and a large range of artisan stalls.

In July and August there is a vibrant night market. People spill from the cafes and bars surrounding the town square. Aromas of local specialities waft through the night air from the many stall holders selling their wares. There is a lively noisy atmosphere throughout the town as locals and tourists mix to share a glass or two.

Lauzun Saturday market and Chateau

Just over the border of the Dordogne and into Lot-et-Garonne, Moulin Brulé is ideally placed to exploring the River Dropt and its surrounding villages and farmland. The 13th century bastide town of Eymet with its lively bars and restaurants is nearby. Visit Lauzun for the Saturday market and take in the chateau too. Weekly summer night markets and soiree gourmandes are very popular.

Oyster & Wine Festival Eymet

Every 15th August the town square is filled with market stalls selling the most incredible variety of oysters. The air is filled with the scent of sardines being grilled and served simply along with fresh prawns, all washed down with copious bottles of rose and white wine. Start at lunchtime and go into the night with live music.

Grape Harvest

The vineyards celebrate the first grape pressing by pressing the the grapes the old fashioned way. They provide a banquet of meat, cheese and wine to thank the locals for their forbearance and help with the hard work of the harvest which often goes on through the nights.

Vintage Cars

We took our Bentley to the bi-annual car show at Castlemoron. The French are crazy over old cars!! The Bentley is now back in the UK but we have repatriated a 1953 Citroen Light 15 to Agnac. Every first Sunday local enthusiasts gather in Bergerac to show and view a staggering variety of ageing vehicles. Bring a picnic and take your time.

A great opportunity to sample local delicacies, moules-frites, dusck sausages, crepes and dance the night away to bands in the squares. Soiree Gourmandes are held in Eymet, Duras, Sauvetat du Dropt and Allemands sur Dropt plus many other surrounding villages.
