Sarlat Market

We timed our visit to include Sarlat's Saturday market, said to be one of the best. It encompasses 10-12 blocks of the main drag plus half a dozen side streets, some general merchandise, but mostly food, augmented importantly by all the entrail and truffle and wine stores.
The aire de camping cars at Sarlat--overflowing into other
lots, streets...

A bit of the market

We bought our goose entrails from this nice lady, who
convinced with two generous samples

More market

responsible for much of France's cultural preservation and
restoration post WWII

Ever more market; we may have over-
stimulated this economy, buying foie gras,
a bottle of Montbazillac, walnut oil, cake,
poulet roti, the book for P, some chocolate,
dinner, plus all the usual cheese, olives,
veggies, fruites, etc. One tends to force-feed
oneself in these surroundings; perhaps it is
an act of solidarity with the geese...
