Friday morning in Lourmarin is market morning. From April to the end of October the market is really busy. In July and August it’s best advised to visit early in the morning. There is a nice mixture of stalls, with roughly 50% of the market offering food and drink, and the other 50% clothes, jewellery, hats, tablecloths etc…On Tuesdays from March until the end of the year there is an early evening farmers’ market. Visitors can buy food from the stalls and eat them at the tables of the adjacent cafe which is handily run by the wine co-operative.
