Craftsmanship, garage sales, traditional and organic markets in South Morbihan

Local markets, craftsmanship, flea markets : your appointements for the summer

The holidays are a time for trying new taste and flavors. They are also a time during which you can take your time for shopping, looking for conviviality, exchanges, being surprised to better surprise.
Whether they be traditional, organic, markets for books, flea markets, markets are part of the life of Breton villages and towns. They are places of life, exchange and surprises.

 

Traditional and organic markets

La Trinité sur Mer and Carnac 

You will have no problem finding markets near the campsite : two markets per week (Tuesdays and Fridays) in La Trinité sur Mer, and two per week (Wednesdays and Sundays) in Carnac.

An organic market sets up on Tuesday mornings on Place de Port-En-Dro in Carnac-Plage in July and August.

The fish market in La Trinité sur Mer is open every morning.

 

Auray 

The large market on Monday mornings in Auray is an event in itself: it brings together nearly 400 exhibitors in the summer, It is set in the town center from 8 am to 2 pm.
More modest, the organic market on Thursday evenings (5 pm to 8 pm) brings together about 25 traders. For a list of local markets, please refer to the website "market days".
  

Garage sales and flea markets

Whatever their given name, these events are regularly organized from April to October, most often on the weekends, in order to benefit from a greater affluence.
For the individual sellers, it is a question of getting rid of objects that they no longer use, for the professionals, to offer these most beautiful pieces or to try to find the rare piece. For both to get a good deal, or at the very least to be able to look around, search about, and possibly be amazed.

La Gacilly 

Nestled on the banks of the River Aff, La Gacilly is now known for its international photo festival which transforms the village every year from June to September into an immense gallery of photographic art.
But for the last 35 years, it has also been a place of art and crafts. In the village's flowery streets, you can weet master glassmakers, wood carvers or jewelry designers.
An association brings together no fewer than thirty artisans with sometimes its share of unusual crafts (the art of making weathervanes or  art knives).
 

Rochefort en Terre 

Rochefort-en terre needs no introduction since it became in 2016, the French's favorite village.
A small scenic tow
n and a beautiful flowered village, the town made an economic comeback at the beginning of the 20th century when a rich American painter fell in love with it.
The beauty of the stone buildings have since attracted there other artists who ended up settling down there.

The Cour des Métiers d'Art

In Pont-Scorff, near Lorient, the Cour des Métiers d'Art, housed in a 17th century house, promotes the know-how of a hundred contemporary artists.

In a 400 sq. metre shop, these present their new creations and meet the public. For 25 years, the Cour des Métiers d'Art has become an unavoidable exhibition and sales venue.

In addition, five temporary exhibitions are organized every year on the theme of arts and crafts.
