Amélie-les-Bains

Small market everyday – Place de la République 7H-12H
Thursday: Place de la Sardane 8H-12H30
You say….
The daily market in Amelie is mostly a fruit and vegetable market, there is one stall selling local wine and cheese  and another selling honey too. The van selling meat and charcuterie is always there too. However each Thursday there is a general market in the Place  de la Sardane. Both markets are good and quite handy to have.

Elne

Monday, Wednesday and Friday
 
You say….
Elne is a really lively market on a Friday in Summer. I wouldn’t really say it’s a tourist-trap, offering all sorts of general goods, 3 excellent sewing/knitting stalls, and of course the usual olives, spices and fresh fruit and veg. With our visitors we sat at a café and had  coffees, were treated (?) to some local bagpipe band’s offerings, and picked up a freshly spit-roast chicken to take home for lunch. Quite easy parking too. Recommended.
