What about markets close to Magalas?
Markets are in abundance! There is too much choice!
In Magalas itself there is a small market every Wednesday morning in the square opposite the Town Hall with wonderful fruit , vegetables, butcher’s van, cheeses as well as a few household goods.
But in the area around Magalas there are markets to be found on almost every day of the week!
Favourites include the lively buzzing market in Pezenas on Saturday mornings. It’s there all year round. In the summer months it’s very busy and with more stalls, but every Saturday you will see locals stocking up on their seasonal vegetables, fruit, meat, fish and shellfish, and cheese and much much more. The local cafes which line the market street are full of folk drinking coffee and eating their morning croissant. The market runs the length of the cours Jean Jaurès and la place de 14 juillet. Up in the place Gambetta is the farmers market and organic produce.
A trip into the hills on a Wednesday morning takes you to the larger market of Clermont Hérault. A huge car park by the old railway station fills up quickly with locals from the surrounding villages. Its always a delight, and with the imposing church in the background, lovely to wander the stalls and guaranteed you’ll soon be tempted and filling your basket with local fresh produce, and lots more.
A favourite on the coast is the Sunday morning market at Mèze, an ancient fishing hamlet on the northern shore of the Bassin de Thau: followed by a lunch on the edge of the Port at one of the many sea food restaurants and a good walk along the beach makes a great Sunday outing.
Specialist markets happen in the larger towns. On a Friday morning the Allées Paul Riquet in Béziers is taken over by flower stalls selling everything from a bunch of bright yellow mimosa for your kitchen, to plants for your” potager”, or a lemon tree for your garden.
Wherever you are exploring, theres likely to be a market close by!
