Provence - Market Days and Times?

Is there a website that lists all the market days and times in the various towns in Provence? I've found a few websites that list the days in which the markets take place but none that have the times as well.

Thank you!

About 95% or more of the markets are in the morning - and close around 1:00

If you ask nicely, Stu may offer to send you his Provence guide.

It's the first document I printed for my trip next month.

My personal favorites are: Tuesday market in Vaison la Romaine, Wednesday market in St. Remy, Thursday market in L'Isle sur la Sorgue, and Saturday market also in L'Isle sur la Sorgue.

As Stu said, get there early (8:30-9:00)and buy a market basket to carry all of the wonderful things you'll certainly want to buy.

Katzen,

The website below has been a fav of min e for years when they had the forum but sadly the forum has been discontinued.

Try this website for market days:
