marche nocturnes in dordogne

I understand there are some summer night markets in certain villages. We will be near Sarlat for the week of 6/25-7/2. Am hoping there might be one while we are there.

Hi
Every thursday.
You gotme confused - it is 'Marchés nocturnes.'

Marche (la) = a walk or a stair.
Marché (le) = market.

http://www.sarlat-tourisme.com/marche-de-sarlat

Marchés nocturnes bio (Toute l'année) :

- Place du 14 Juillet (place de la Poste) : Toute l'année. Le jeudi, à partir de 17H en hiver et 18H en été.

The Sarlat Tourist Office website should list them all soon before they occur, but it's not a fixed schedule for certain villages for the most part. You'll see posters up in villages and on the roads a few days before. There are some places, like Audrix, that have regular night events (repas, gastronomie, but not a marché) on weekends in the summer, but the marchés nocturnes generally aren't fixed events.

A marché bio nocturne wouldn't hold much interest to me at all. I'd rather see my veggies in the light of day.

I thought it was a party atmosphere with music etc. No? St cirq, you know where our chateau is located. We will want to eat dinner out that first night but will also want to be close by. Any dinner recs? Thanks

I've never been to a marché nocturne that was anything like a party atmosphere. It's usually just a side street of a village where there are vendors selling the same types of stuff you find at regular marchés, or sometimes it's an evening rummage sale with second-hand goods. There are repas and bals dansants and other evening activites where there is music and food; these are frequent in the summer, and you pay a fee for the communal meal and entertainment, but they aren't marchés.

I'll have to go back and check the location of your château, but I'm sure I can recommend someplace to get a nice meal.

My all time best in Dordogne was restaurant Panoram I htink, at la cingle de Trémolat - but one hour west of Sarlat... What a view and good food.

Was looking at Lo Gorrisado. Not sure if too fancy. 3 or 4 km from chateau.

Haven't eaten at Lo Gorrisado, but it looks really fussy to me, and not exactly representative of the local terroir. I would check out L'Esplanade in Domme or La Treille in Vitrac, or even Le Relais des Cinq Châteaux outside Vitrac, or Le Gabarrier in Allas-les-Mines.

Le Panorame is wonderful, Whathello, but a long way from where plambers is staying. Speaking of which, plambers, I can't find the email where you told me where you were staying. Email me again, please?

Know won nos the Dordogne like St-Cirq! c'est vrai sans doute - take her advice to heart!

And watch out for those piranha that infest the Dordogne river! (Well at least some years ago! Not sure now!)

Cheers!

PalenQ, I am very fortunate indeed to have St Cirq's guidance and we will get to meet her and her husband when there.
https://www.vrbo.com/381978 is our gite for the week. Outside of Sarlat. Ideally want someplace nearby (5-10 minutes)bc it will have been a long travel day and we don't want to get lost our first night!Happy for any dining recs.

Any of the places I previously mentioned would be good, but if you want more choices in Sarlat I'd suggest Le Présidial, Le Bistro de l'Octroi, and Le Grand Bleu (which I think has a Michelin star).

We don't have any more pirhana, PalenQ - that was years ago, and there were maybe two of them.

St Cirq, we want something close by and easy for the first night-what is your rec? I don't need Sarlat unless you recommend otherwise.
