- The Cevennes market of La Grand’Combe, Saturdays and Wednesdays, from 8am to 1pm
On the Place Jean Jaurès, it is a market that has been renowned for more than a century, where even those from the “big city” “come up” to stock up on local produce. As the seasons change, the stalls change in color and flavor, for the pleasure of the eyes as well as the taste buds.
In summer, tourists mingle with the locals and the atmosphere is even warmer and typically Mediterranean: it talks, it laughs, it teases… Discover the Cevennes differently with the hundred or so local producers present: charcuterie, meat, fish, goat’s cheese, honey, fresh vegetables, roast chicken and paëllas to take away, olives, green plants and even snails… Everything you will find on the spot, including clothing vendors and camelots as in the past.
- Les Halles de l’Abbaye (covered market) in Alès, every morning, from 8am to 12pm

Ah, the Halles de l’Abbaye, a place not to be missed in Alès where encounters and conviviality meet with local Cevennes products. Go there, the stallholders will be happy to make you taste their products and tell you about their passion!
