Experience Rodez market

Do you want to get closer to the people of Rodez? Chat with the traders? Taste fresh local produce? Head to Rodez market!

Saturday mornings.

When you walk around, you quickly understand that something special is happening in Rodez city centre. Some roads are diverted, everyone is walking in the same direction, you can hear the sound of shopping trolleys clattering over the cobbles…

Quality products

We follow the crowd and first arrive at Place du Bourg. There are several stalls occupying the square. From raw produce to street food, the stalls are doing a roaring trade! Customers patiently wait their turn, talking with their neighbours. Conversations are exchanged, in French, in Occitan. There is a friendly atmosphere everywhere.

As we weave our way through the shopping streets, we continue towards the Place de la Cité. This is the domain of fruit and vegetables. There is a mind-blowing choice between traders and produce.

The products are all beautiful, of the highest quality! Our shopping basket is starting to feel heavy.

We finish by walking along the cathedral and its itinerant stalls. Local specialties are still present: gâteau à la broche (cake cooked on a spit), flaune, aligot … For those who wish to cook their own meals, butchers are also present with their refrigerated trucks.

Really, in this market (food only), you can find everything. No need to stop at the local supermarket to complete your shopping.

Before going home, we take time out on a pavement café. We people-watch: families, people of all ages, traders, who mingle and bring the market to life every week, all year round. We are moved by these strong moments of sharing.
